In order to survive the tribulation by logic we should have in storage for several families for the 3.5 years a warehouse like Costco/Sams Club etc. etc. But, since we rely on God and the Blessed Virgin Mary, all Our Lord would like to see us do is at least try to store food for these end times.
Most of us, especially along the coastal areas will have to move anyways, so store as much as you can but be ready to leave and take what you can when it is time. Our Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary tells that the ones who say the rosary, try to live as we should and who do have faith, will be taken care of. Also, please read the expiration dates and rotate food accordingly.
However, during the tribulations, we must be charitable and yet prudent. Discernment on who we are charitable to, is also necessary. Heaven says that your food supply will be replenished. Please be prudent and secrecy is somewhat important as the military will confiscate your goods.
The following is only a guide. You may substitute for food of equal value. The brand names are not important! It is important to have supplies high in food value and that do not have to be cooked. Food may be warmed on top of your kerosene heater or wood stove. Remember, there will be NO gas, electricity or water.
