The FALL 2012 Order Has Begun!

The new FALL 2012 Walton Feed Group Order is open and has been emailed to every person in my food storage email list! Please email me if you need order forms and want to be included in my email group to receive notifications of new orders. (macoombs5@comporium.net)

I have never had so many emails and phone calls about "when is the next order?" I'm glad y'all are thinking of your food storage and being prepared! All are welcome to join our order!

There are 3 forms attached. (Email me for the forms! macoombs5@comporium.net)
1 - The PDF price list is printable and for your convenience.
2 - The Excel price list is what you should use to turn in your order. All you have to do is fill out the contact information in the top left corner, then type in your quantities. Your order total and weight will automatically be added up at the bottom of the page. Save this to your computer, then you can attach it to an email and send it in to your group leader!
3- What Should I Store PDF - I have attached a form that states recommended foods and amounts. The first page shows a year supply of basics for one person. On the second page I broke it down to a one month supply for one person to help it seem more do-able. This is a great page to copy and use as a handout! The third page is more info and comments if you care to read them. May you be blessed as you work on your food storage and family preparedness. : )

The deadline for everyone to have their orders turned in to their group leader is September 30th! Group (or Stake) Leaders need to have their orders to me no later than October 5th. Please follow the deadlines that your group leader gives you! Her deadline for you might be different so she has time to meet my deadline of October 5th. We are hoping to have all of our trucks delivered by Thanksgiving, which would be wonderful! But that will depend on a million things. : ) That is the goal though.

I almost forgot to mention that there are several new items on the list....Gravies, several Quick and Easy Meals, spice mixes, French Vanilla Almond Granola (yum!), roasted garlic mashed potatoes, sweet potato dices, dried golden raisins, storage boxes, clear poly bags, and several more.

There are so many people buzzing about food storage and really wanting to do an order. Would you please try to email it out to anyone who might be interested, and let people know about it. Feel free to share it with neighbors, friends, family, church groups, homeschool groups, etc. With all that is happening in the world, it's a good time to make sure we have our food storage and supplies in order. Thanks for all you do to help others be prepared. I know that we are blessed as we serve each other!

These orders are organized by groups in geographical areas (Stakes). If you need to know who your Group Leader is, please contact me and I will try to get you in touch with the right person.

If you are a past group leader, please let me know if you plan to head up an order this time or not. If you want to start up an order in your area, email me and let me know and I will help you get started. Thanks for all of your time and service to help others get prepared!

If you have any questions about this order please email me and I will be happy to help! Have a wonderful week! Melissa : )

P.S. - SWEET NOTE from someone who accidentally sent this to me instead of her church group. I thought I would share part of it. It is very wise and timely counsel!

...I would like you to prayerfully think about your food storage.  The drought is already driving up food prices and so I would really recommend stocking up now before it gets worse.  The Church's Cannery Prices have been steadily going up also.  I would also recommend stocking your freezer with meat since corn prices drive meat prices and meat prices will skyrocket. If you think they are high now, just wait. I will again hand out on Sunday some of the Church's recommended storage items so that you can more effectively plan for the future and be in line with Church teachings....

I have a testimony of food storage.  It has helped my family live more economically on a budget and eat more healthy.  When you plan your food storage don't go into debt, but do be diligent that you may attain the prize and follow the Prophet....  Thanks XXXXXXX (name omitted)
