Deadline is approaching for the
Spring 2016 Walton Feed Group Order!
The deadline is rapidly approaching for this current Walton Feed order! Some tips:· If you do not know who your group leader is, feel free to send your order directly to me. I need to have all orders by Thursday, March 24th at midnight.
· Payment needs to be sent by April 7th. If you need more time, please let me know. See information below about Payment methods.
· It may take me several days to a week to respond to let you know I have received your order and answer any questions. I will be receiving hundreds of emails within a 24 hr period and will handle the most urgent ones first. So please be patient as I get all of this organized and everything answered. J I do this order in my spare time, and usually that’s after 8pm! Haha!
· So many people are excited about this order! I know we will have many delivery locations, but I will not know them for sure until all of the orders have been received and organized. If you have sent your order directly to me, I will send you information about your delivery location as soon as they have been determined. Thanks so much! Melissa J
Email about the order:
You can order as little or as much as you would like! Walton Feed offers a huge variety of food in #10 cans (about the size of a gallon), #2.5 cans (about the size of a quart), 6 gallon buckets, and bulk bags and boxes. We get a discount from Walton Feed's retail prices and good truck shipping rates. We will have delivery locations all over the east coast from Florida to New York, and several other areas in the central US and west coast. Anyone can start a group in their area! Groups need a minimum order of 2000 lbs (1 pallet) to qualify for their own delivery. That’s quite easy to do if you spread the word! Let me know if you would like to start a group in your area! We do this order twice a year, in the spring and in the fall.
ATTACHED (email me for these documents - cant' attach to a blog!)
There are 3 forms attached.
1 - The PDF Price List is printable and for your convenience. It can easily be emailed and people can print their own copy. It is in a PDF format, so anyone can open it, regardless of what kind of computer they have.
2 - The Excel Price List is the official price list and 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 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. : )
DEADLINE AND DELIVERY
The deadline for everyone to have their orders turned in to me is March 24th. Delivery will most likely be in May or June and July, but it will depend on how many trucks we fill and where we are in line once the order is turned in to Walton Feed. We will not have delivery information until the order is figured out and organized, and trucks are routed.
GROUP FOOD STORAGE BLOG!!
I have set up a blog for this order! Those who have ordered can log on at any time and see updates and delivery information for this order! This will make it so much easier for all involved! I would highly recommend for everyone who orders, to sign up to receive email notifications when I post a new update.

SPREAD THE WORD
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. Also, the spreadsheet is locked to preserve the formulas and you can email me for the password if you are a group leader. That will allow you to copy and paste orders to create a master group spreadsheet.
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!
There are 3 options for payment:
*Checks or Cashiers checks can be made to Melissa Coombs or your Group Leader. Follow your Group Leaders instructions! Checks cannot be made to Walton Feed. They do not accept personal checks for our large group order.
*PayPal payments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to click "Pay Friends and Family" so I am not charged a fee. Please include your name, phone number and group/stake name in the comments.
*Credit card payments can be taken for orders over $200. Please call me with your credit card information. 803-818-1569. I prefer the other two forms of payment because they are easier, but I will gladly take your credit card information if that works best for you, and especially if you have a large order. Make sure your group leader knows you are paying me directly with a credit card so he/she can properly account for all payments. I will be bombarded with phone calls and emails near the deadline time, so it will be easiest for me if I take credit card payments about a week after the deadline.
If you have any questions about this order, please email me and I will be happy to help! Have a wonderful week! Melissa : )
