Church Announces Updates to Food Storage, Emergency Preparedness


“Just as the Church adapts food production and storage projects according to changing needs, families may want to make similar adjustments from time to time in their food storage plans to ensure availability for their own use and to share with others,” Sister Jean B. Bingham said.

The Church announced plans Thursday to supply families and community agencies with “finished goods” such as pasta, pancake mix, and flour — rather than raw wheat which can be difficult to process at home.

“In the next several years we anticipate increasing food donations to community charities by more than 20 million pounds annually,” said Bishop Gérald Caussé, Presiding Bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Increased donations of flour and other related products will allow the Church to more effectively assist those in need.
