Cost of food in the United States increased 3.90 percent in December of 2020 over the same month in the previous year, and while that doesn’t sound overly cumbersome per family, families are expected to spend approximately $695 per year more in groceries in 2021.
That is nearly $58 more each month in 2021 than those same families spent before the COVID-19 panic hit and food shortages began, and hundreds of thousands saw their jobs in their rear-view mirrors after states decided to deem certain businesses “non-essential,” and forced them to close down.
This year’s report forecasts meat and vegetables to jump by as much as 6.5%. Bakery is predicted to increase by as much as 5.5%.
Families can expect to add $695 to their overall food bill this coming year.

Other key predictions in the report include price increases of 2 to 4 per cent for fruit, 1.5 to 3.5 per cent for seafood and 1 to 3 per cent for dairy, and an overall increase in restaurant prices of 3 to 5 per cent.
That is the jump expected in 2021, but that follows a massive increase for consumers from early 2020 to the end of 2020, as the chart below shows.https://d3fy651gv2fhd3.cloudfront.net/embed/?s=unitedstafooinf&v=202101152300V20200908&h=300&w=600
Sometimes a million written words cannot make the point as well as a visual, and as seen above, the spike was in conjunction with the COVID lockdowns.
Those numbers are confirmed by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer price index summary, which lists food, at home and away from home, having seen a 3.9% increase.

Furthermore, the previous food shortages, despite retailers limiting the purchase of certain items, along with the expected future shortages as demand surges and supply stagnates, and food insecurity is going to be a severe problem for the foreseeable future.
LET THEM EAT…..BUGS?
Along with the news of skyrocketing food prices and another round of food shortages, establishment media is pushing the “eat insects” or “eat worms” narratives, with the Europe now declaring “mealworms” are a safe source of human food.
The Daily Mail:
Good news for those with the insect-eating bug, for mealworms are to become the first creepy-crawly to be approved in Europe as a safe source of food for humans.
The decision — announced today by the European Food Safety Agency — paves the way for the crunchy yellow grubs to be eaten whole, dried or even to make flour.
Despite their name, mealworms are beetle larvae, rather than worms, and are already used in Europe as an ingredient in pet foods.
Already used in pet foods…. that pretty much sums up what the citizens of the country are to the “powers that be,”…. pets.

Thus, the European Union has now thrown its weight behind worms in much the same way the United Nations has. The U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization in 2013 championed edible bugs as a low-fat, high-protein food for people, pets and livestock that are good for the environment and help feed the hungry.
This was also covered by Wall Street Journal and other major news outlets, showing that there is a definite push by the national and global media to program the populace into accepting bugs and insects as part of the regular food chain for human beings.
Granted, in other nations and even in parts of the U.S., some “bugs” are considered a delicacy, but it is likely that the overwhelming majority of Americans do not see insects, worms, bugs, whatever you call them, as a regular source of protein or nutrition.
The most logical reason for them to push this “eat bugs” narrative so hard and so fast, would be the expected upcoming shortages.
We see many assertions that “this time,” the shortages will be less severe, “this time,” stores are better prepared, “this time” will be different.

Store stocks have not full recovered from the last round of shortages, as products are being lumped into smaller spaces to appear as if fully stocked.
Companies have suspended making certain varieties of products to mass produce the items a little more popular because they do not have the means to produce the amount of options previously available.
SHORTAGES IN 2021 WILL BE WORSE
The causes for the initial shortages were clear. First the year before many crops suffered from massive floods, preventing farmers from planting crops until late in the season, as well as ranchers losing livestock due to the same weather events.
Then the early freeze occurred and that limited the harvests even more.
Then came 2020, and the lockdowns, where schools, restaurants and other services that provide meals, were forced to close as being “non-essential.” Without the demand of those businesses, ranchers were forced to destroy their own livestock, by the millions collectively, as farmers destroyed their own crops.
Now it is 2021, some businesses have reopened, some demand has returned, and supply chains have been altered to adjust to getting food to consumers, minus the middlemen in some cases.

Just as store shelves are at least not emptying as fast as they can stock them, we now have a new administration incoming that has blatantly stated they plan for nationwide lockdowns, which include business closures, and will start the merry-go-round all over again.
Not only do we expect the shortages to be start again, and be worse than the previous ones due to the lack of time to get the food supply chain back to what it was, but we will see more unemployment, more food insecurity, more families forced to go to food banks or free food giveaways, with less food in the supply chain.
The point here is preparation was important in 2020, but is critical in 2021, because we will not have an administration trying to reopen the country, but rather an administration with plans to further close the nation down.
Below the article and video, we are listing more food items from our newly updated Still/Back in stock page, to prepare for what is coming…again.
We’re expecting 2021 will be worse than 2020, in a number of ways, but food is always key to survival, so time to top off your supplies and/or restock anything used over the months.
If you wait until the food shortages hit hard again, it will be too late to start to stock up because as we saw the last time, even emergency survival food companies were forced to limit orders, and purchases were delayed weeks and in some cases, months.
Batten down your hatches folks, prepare to survive, because 2021 is already looking ugly and it just began. (Click to Source)
