Global Food Shortages Are Becoming Very Real & U.S. Grocery Stores Prepare For Worst Case Scenarios
While the world turns the spotlights to failed attempts of fixing broken economic systems, a hunger crisis is spreading across the globe. Amid a sanitary outbreak that is devastating countries politically and economically, and as a consequence of catastrophic natural disasters, recent reports are indicating that we're about to see “famines of biblical proportions”. Countries that once eradicated the dreadful effects of malnutrition are witnessing a reoccurrence of high poverty rates, meaning that a larger portion of their population is now facing deep food insecurity.
From Asia to Africa to South America, the hunger crisis is leaving a troubling track, and specialists are warning that if the world leaders don't take action soon enough, the repercussion of the widespread food shortages will become more fatal than the current viral outbreak.
The Executive Director of UN's World Food Programme (WFP) David Beasley has repeatedly warned that in addition to the damages that emerged with the global health crisis, the world would face “multiple famines of biblical proportions” that would likely cause 300,000 casualties per day, triggering a hunger crisis. Now, this critical situation is already a reality for many countries. A couple of months ago, while speaking at an online briefing broadcast by the UN on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, the WFP chief disclosed the distressing fact that 821 million people are currently battling with food insecurity. “If we don’t prepare and act now, to secure access, avoid funding shortfalls and disruptions to trade,” he said, the outcome could lead to a “humanitarian catastrophe in a short few months”. “Millions of civilians living in conflict-scarred nations, including many women and children, face being pushed to the brink of starvation, with the specter of famine a very real and dangerous possibility,” he added.
Now, grocery stores across the United States are stocking up on products to avoid shortages during a second wave of coronavirus. When the media starts acknowledging that food shortages are on the horizon, it's a sign things are about to get much worse. The report specified that household products – including paper towels and Clorox wipes – have been difficult to find at times during the pandemic, and if grocery stores aren’t stocked up and prepared for a second wave this winter, runs on products and shortages could happen again.
Furthermore, noting that the food prices will likely increase due to the greedy ambitions of a handful of billionaires, who are profiting at the expense of workers financial pain, which unables them to afford for basic goods. With high demand for groceries comes higher prices in the aisles. Since March, more Americans have been eating at home – and their grocery expenses have been growing. This is partly due to the fact that food manufacturers and grocery stores are rethinking their pricing strategies now because demand is surging.
What is more, on top of the threatening food shortages and soar in prices, other determinants may contribute to the disruption of the food supply chain, since many U.S. farmers have gone bankrupt during this downturn. They revealed that federal payments have actually done very little to keep them afloat. In fact, the initial payments under the Food Assistance Program, which provided $16 billion in direct support and $3 billion in purchases, disclosed an uneven distribution of financial aid, and most of the payments were redirected to large, industrialized farms.
Another distressing event that adds to all these factors is the major natural disasters that happened this year in agricultural areas of many countries, but most concerningly in China, where crops were wiped out on a massive scale, leaving a dent in global food production. For now, most Americans still have access to plenty of food, and we shouldn't take that for granted, because global conditions are swiftly changing and we probably should take this window of opportunity to start preparing for the very challenging times that are ahead of us.

Looks like I’ll be able to stick to my new year’s resolution of losing weight. Ethiopian Beach body, here I come.
@Touch Base Exactly.
@E P Holy crap! An N.P.C, S.J.W. I am honored
Yeah, I like to call it fasting instead of starving, let’s head into this with valor, not the victim mindset …
It’s called the depopulation program
The world is a scary place now
Yeah done by nature.
@D G yup💯
@lady love Did you mean “stock” up?
Well the virus didn’t kill enough so on with the food shortage! maybe then they will be happy!
Damn a parents worst nightmare..not being able to feed your family. That just make me feel so sad and heartbroken.
@2 deep 2 sleep The full shelves need to be at your house. How long do you think those full store shelves will last when the light comes on for the population of your town?
Tim Burke I prep 😉
2 deep 2 sleep I hope high , wide, and deep.
Tim Burke could never have too much, I would like to thank all of you, preparedness minded people I learn from, 700 pounds of food a year per head, I learned that off YouTube I’m grabbing as much as the good lord allows me to, hopefully I can help someone in need but yes preparing ahead of time feels so good, most black people think I’m weird when they see a ton of rice, they won’t before too long though
@Tim Burke For those that aren’t familiar with that, could you explain? Thanks!
So glad I learned to make beans & cornbread!!!
Grow some collard or mustard greens and you have one hell of a combo.
TheRoShow more like good for your farts
@Ready Or not I learned that about a week ago. I’m 57 lol
One of my favorite meals, add a slice of onion on the side and that takes it over the top!
Oh Yes, 😆from kid’s til this day cook beans and corn bread.
This video doesn’t talk about the farmers all around the world that are forced to kill and destroy there animals and fields?
The killing of animals is sickening for any reason, better to be vegan!
@S Jordan get bent! You are probably a sick leftists that goes against the Bible and supports abortion. You’re a sicko!
@Mr. Minnesota Leftist? You couldn’t be more wrong!!!
@S Jordan only someone that would diss eating animals would be stupid as a liberal.
@Mr. Minnesota Then you are ignorant, watch ‘Forks over Knives’!
I have been preparing for this for awhile now and a relative of mine said last week that (you look like you have a grocery store inside your kitchen and when I need food I know where to come )ppl better start looking out for themselves this day and time, God Bless! !!
We are stocking up because were fixing to retire. The price of food has been going up so much everytime i go to the store. Its crazy.
Why are you advertising your stock? Foolish.
I thought I was helping a friend by encouraging him to start stocking up. He said that he would just come over to my place. The funny part is, he turned his back on me over nothing. Even after I helped him a lot in the past. After he dumped our friendship, I realized how much he was stressing me out. I’m so glad he left. Trust me, you have no idea who your friends really are until you hit a bump in the road.
If people are not prepping it’s their own fault when they have nothing when the shtf. If they want help they better have something to offer, be it bullets or water.
@ronnel acido they can only do that if they can find you. Prepping is one thing and ghosting is an added skill.
The Book of Revelation said this would all happen. Give your life to CHRIST while HE can be found. Repent of your sins and run to CHRIST.
Amen Jesus Christ is the way. He is the divine and beautiful truth. Peace be with you.
I am a Christian and i dont see how Trump is the anti christ? He is standing strong for the right way of life. Trump is good for the world, i wish ppl would actually learn who and what he stands for before believing what the media says about him. If he was the antichrist the media would be supporting him.
@NPC 1337 that is the dumbest thing I have heard. True Christians would know that he supports Israel and he was put by God. you need some decrement and less tv
This is exactly what the elite want. They want the population reduced but not them. It is working for them.
jack cash Thé Sodomy is the last sign before the complete destruction of a civilization. It’s a Holocaust for the apostate West
Yep, that’s why the elite created BLM and helps fund other right wing hate groups as well, so we can kill each other.
Yeah temporarily. Then they have to reap what they sow. The bible tells you how they will be treaded down in their bonkers and these fools think that the Lord can’t find them Lol how dumb
The Un IMF and world bank are all fronts for the ruling elite.
SO ARE ALL UNIVERSITIES AND THE MEDIA!
World Bank, IMF & Economic World Form are behind this Coronavirus scamdemic!
right, they are fronts for total control and enslavement of humanity.
UN agenda 2030 is essentially a takeover of the world.
please stop fighting each other and start gardening Now, Please!!!!
@ragnakak yes you can grow many things, spinach, arugula, kale, carrots, potatoes, green onions, some lettuce greens, start herbs for inside. Don’t let others discourage you. You need to start seeds if you are putting them outside and you can cover them with burlap or a light frost fabric to protect seedlings.
@2020isperfectvision your wrong coming from a farmer…
This suggestion is one of the few that really makes sense.
It’s fall !
2020isperfectvision lol😂,we should start fishing like the eskimos.
Lazy, consumers, spoiled, living on borrowed debt system.. well now the reaper is coming for payment.. and what have people done? Sitting on their as.. probably can’t wait till black Friday.. no survival skills.. how is it every person walks around with a phone yet are dumb as a box of rocks.. humans smh
@Stoney Island Ranch lol, better start digging.
@Gellybean Riley 😂🤣i have a phone dinggle berry.. keep consuming dont worry about it.. it will be fine..lol
@Joshua Lee thats a lie .. there is plenty of land you need to explore .. i been all across the country..
@Joshua Lee the millions in the city wont leave because they say the same thing.. so to the smarter ones.. there is plenty of land!!
@John Pruett naa im good ..i just turn the key.. a hole takes a few minutes
Like covid just finished agenda 2020 and best believe agenda 2030 will be on time.
World war 3 for 2030
Thank you for sharing your comment
Epic Economist absolutely. I watch your content regularly. The truth anyone can find is following the money bag. Where’d the money go and who benefits and usually there’s the culprit.
10 years we have to wait 10 years for.this , prepare then we will. Fight we must
America won’t be here in 10yrs! Time to take a stand and fight!!
“A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” – Revelation 6:6
@Corey Mack Thank you!
Do you have a grinder to make your own flour? The grain is supposed to last longer than flour.
@Mark M …Well your welcome and no, actually I buy the barley flour in vacuum pak sealed bags and then I store them in the fridge or a cool dry place. You can get yourself an affordable wheat grain grinder at Wally World…Have fun baking bread during the famine. I think you’ll take great comfort in knowing that you will always be able to bake hot fresh bread for you & your family anytime you want in the middle of the starvation and economic distress coming to America.✌🤓
@Corey Mack Don’t forget the yeast. Right now I can find it in the stores easily, but that wasn’t always the case. It has been a few decades since I have had homemade bread. After several failed attempts to make it in a bread maker, I threw in the towel. However, that is on my bucket list lol. I daydream of fresh bread and old fashioned cooking in the winter, next to the fireplace.
I had the extreme privilege of having two wonderful parents, that instilled good values and great memories.
@Mark M ….Mmmm…Sounds so wonderful! I just melt. Well I recommend YouTube barley bread training course for all your cooking,making & baking bread needs. I myself tend to buy alot of boxed bread because of the coming collapse and it even comes with a pack of yeast and all you need is to add water! Meanwhile,this Winter,I’ll be kneading my doe by the fireplace with a Nat King Cole cd singing Winter carols in the background. If you do this during the Winter of the next Great Depression then you’ll quickly cheer yourself up and everyone else! Happy prepping my friend.✌🤓
@NPC 1337 Trump is not the anti christ he just works for the antichrist . The Pope Is the antichrist According to revelation and Daniel.
Man-made Starvation planned not mother nature.
Most governments are feeding people with welfare food stamps food banks etc. The US is just stingey
Scrappy ChildHood there’s just too many people.
@Aldridge Gonzales Wrong Earth can Sustain 20 billion Humans. The problem is Mishandling Resources. There were Soulantion to this mess in the 80’s 70s. Are species built a system that leads to extinction? If we become type 1 there be no borders one unified earth and solar system explore.
I was the person who said I was afraid to have my daughter ask me for something to eat and have to tell her I had nothing to feed her. Shes in her mid twenties now and, I am proud to say, she takes what I consider prudent precautions. Now I worry about other families and other children. It’s time to consider a rebirth of “Victory Gardens.” Plant more than you need, trade, or provide to food banks.
God bless you

Plant 🥔’ s. They are your only hope of growing enough calories.
Yep, I shake my head at the New World gardeners and wannabe farmers growing sprouts and tomatoes, thinking they are growing “food”. You burn more calories eating that than you are taking in. Calories count, nothing else. Stock up on vitamins too.
What if you can’t get potatoes?
@pottsy you can’t get potatoes? I grew some store bought Russets last summer and it worked fine (seed potatoes are better but the regular ones work too).
In washington they buried tons of potatos this year. Because they were for fries and restsurants were closed. You could take as many as you wanted
Going to get worse, this is only the beginning, I’m 65 swm living alone in pa, a bit lonely, but money is ok, I do worry of others that are in need, the poor kids during these times
@Davis Lee No he needs to talk to me.
Am feeling your point of view. This is terrible to watch nothing being done to improve the situation.
Can you really live on beans & rice long term?? SWF
@Stefne Walton uhhh yes. My grandfather was a kid during the Great Depression and they only had rice sometimes! Beans were a luxury! So, yes- you can. Americans today are too soft to endure that, though… many will not survive it!
U have friends here brother
1 tomato plant in my garden has given me about 150 tomatos. I wish more people would grow something to eat.
Mine gave me five….lol cheaper to have bought them at the store!
@American Restoration Initiative true
Just grow the things that are normal for your area.
Even deserts they grow cactus plants to add their food supply.
People could buy from local farmers
Also save money that way
One of Biggest fears ever is watching kids starving, and being powerless to help them. Another reason I prepare!
