    Do you stockpile Food for "bad times"?

    Just curious does anyone stockpile food (or thought about it) just in case worst case scenario happens, epidemic, pandemic, economy collapse, zombie apocalypse?

    Sure they will. If they are thawed, just reduce how long you put them in the oven.

    Not because I am stocking up for bad times but I have supplies that would last a few months.

    I think about zombie apocalypses quite a bit which includes stockpiling food, but no, I don't have a stockpile.
