I’m in southern Indiana! JayC seems good Walmart is short on products like meat and the other day I couldn’t find dried beans. Cat food fancy feast I can’t find. I’m having problems finding the laundry products I use. Walmart does not have much house paint or spray paint. Farm feed is going up. And the prices are killing me.

Trin, you know exactly what is going on,it's all going to China and what used to come from China isn't leaving there anymore.

Food scarcity as a result of the coming pole shift and ice age.

Most the countries in the world had excess food 15 years ago, now none do.

Welcome to Socialism! That's what happens, everything goes to shit!

I just shopped in a fancy mall, it looked like CUBA.

Amazon doesn't even give a shit about Whole foods anymore. They turned half the store into a distribution center for Prime customers. No more cafe, no more lunch crowds, no more community.

Life feels completely empty in Blue towns. I cant wait to get out of Nashville.

One real indicator of the supply chain fallout is Macys Shoe dept. It used to take up 1/4 of the main floor. It's just a tiny corner now, with one tiny sales rack.

Everything is online now.

America died anywhere liberalism reins. Seeing people masked all morning was depressing as well. Life feels so empty.

What the hell is going on?

Are they redirecting our food supply somewhere else?

Is it really a worker shortage?

Is it a distribution issue?

Is this intentional?

Why is the price of what IS available pretty much double what it was 2 years ago?

I live in Northern VA. I’ve been here for almost 30 years. I’m right off 95.
I have never seen the amount of trucks out on 95 daily that I see now. I travel 40 miles one way, a day. So I know and I see it. Massive amount of trucks on 95.

I think those who have yards could grow vegetables and if big enough maybe have chickens. People have always done this but kind of got away from it because of 2 wage earner families. a couple different families could even grow different vegetables and trade with each other. Those who don't have yards could help maintain and help with the gardening for a share. Just a thought. I do notice more people having chickens for fresh eggs. I did already get vegetable seeds from Amazon.

Re: Seriously though, what's with the shortages that have been lasting for years now?
so why a shortage of rice pudding? the company is making as much as they can or have in the past and only so many people like rice pudding. it has to be cold so only last only so long. last 2 months it is flying off shelve as if more people are buying it or buying more of it. they never had a stocking trouble as not many buy it. they take longer to put it on shelve?. they are running out at walmart. other stores that have it it gone up in price but they have it. Sams is running out of it and even there it not a big seller. so were is all the pudding? it is not a thing that goes to china and it is USA made. the cheaper mex made stuff is on shelve but everyone knows it does not taste good. it last longer than milk but still they do not have any place to store it at less that much of it. so were is it? it not a thing there going to put under ground. i do not think they can freeze it.
so were is it. i know it does not set in trucks for it would go bad. company has to have money so i know it not going bad on them before they sell it. is this just a walmart slow at moving it? or are more people buying it? i have buy rice pudding for years and never seen it out at any store before.

Re: Seriously though, what's with the shortages that have been lasting for years now?
Went grocery shopping early this morning, northern New Jersey suburbs/exurbs. Here’s what I observed:

========================

Canned and bottled goods: Fully stocked, and deep on the shelves. Soups, canned meat, vegetables, fruit, tomatoes, sauce, gravies, condiments, dressings all abundant. No shortages to be seen.

Dairy: Fully stocked. Plenty of milk, butter, cheese of all types and packaging, yogurt, eggs. Sour cream and cream cheese, as well as orange juice, were a bit thin. Heavy and light cream, half and half and various nut milks were all available and plentiful.

Processed meats: Plenty of bacon, hot dogs and packaged lunch meat, but breakfast sausage had lots of gaps.

In-store bakery: Well-stocked. Only thing missing was certain types of specialty breads that come in from an outside vendor.

Bread aisle: Fully stocked, no shortages at all.

Baking aisle. Fully stocked. Some items, notably the cooking oil, have gone up in price quite noticeably since a couple of weeks ago; for example, corn oil has almost doubled in price.

Juices and sports drinks: Well-stocked. Even had Gatorade, which is unusual since it’s often missing.

Fresh fruits and vegetables: Well-stocked, but most bagged salad was missing due to the recent listeria recall. Potatoes seemed a bit low.

Snacks: Well-stocked, but missing certain choices; some of the snacks that are somewhat niche, like certain types or flavors of crisps, were missing and their section filled with better sellers.

Paper goods: Abundant. Plenty of paper towels, TP, paper plates, napkins and tissues.

Meats: Shortages. About half the usual amount was displayed for sale, except for pork. Chicken was exceptionally sparse, maybe one-quarter of normal amounts.

Deli: Seemed most products were in stock.

Seafood: Well-stocked.

Frozen foods: Some shortages were apparent, particularly frozen vegetables, which were very sparse or missing altogether. Frozen potato products were in short supply, as well. Prepared frozen dinners were variable, with shortages dependent upon brand. No shortage of frozen pizza, ice cream or confections.

===========================

My take on this has been, and continues to be that they are keeping any nascent shortages out of the heavily populated blue areas, while in effect punishing red states. I’m out on the far fringes of the NJ/NYC sprawl, in a somewhat rural-to-suburban mix area, and think that even though this is a red county, we get the spillover from the metro in regards to supplies.

Short synopsis:

DARPA is funding the creation of 3D printed food from "mixed waste," to be served "when traditional food is unavailable."

One big reason for the food shortages.

Soution: grow your own food, start thinking differently about all this (be creative), start seed swaps, etc. etc.

(Seed swaps are events where gardeners meet to exchange seeds. Swapping can be arranged online or by mail, especially when participants are spread out geographically. Swap meet events, where growers meet and exchange their excess seeds in person, are also growing in popularity.)

It's artificial shortages to raise the prices of everything, it's all about the extra profit.

You can easily see this with electronics as well, supposedly there is a shortage of graphics cards yet a lot of them somehow ended up in mostly Asian mining farms. Once supply supposedly goes back to normal (A goalpost that keeps moving forward..) the prices will stay high. They always do.

There may be some people from other nations that think they're not seeing "shortages", but they definitely are. Food has become much more expensive recently even though we may not have empty shelves just yet.

It's called Earth transformation, upheaval, climate change on a grand scale, crop losses, livestock sickness and death - a little bit of redirect to 'safe storage' so there's something for someone - and otherwise a great reset of the planet that is NOT in their control, but which they are trying to manage as they are tasked with.

If you ain't stocked up and prepared, it's too late.
