PREP food storage
Feb. 3, 2009
On January 24, 2009, Andrew and Henry transported approximately
250 lbs of long term storage food to the PREP storage area of the Benson Fire Hall. It was unloaded and transferred to the designated area by Ed, Virginia and Mark.
Subsequently, about 100 bottles of assorted waters and drinks were placed in the same designated area along with a small amount of baby food. Zero cost to PREP. There is a sufficient variety and quantity of food to last five to seven day for about fifty people. The next segment of this project is to original date code all items (where available) and develop pull or out of service dates and mark containers and packages
appropriately. Two sets of inventory lists will be set up. One in designated kitchen area and one in PREP file. When food reaches "Best Used By" date, food is then donated to volunteer organizations (Fire Dept., etc.) and or is disposed of properly. As inventory decreases, information is forwarded to Point Roberts Food Bank for timely replacement.
