This is a useful write-up, thank you for this and your previous posts on alternate foods.
Do you know which US government departments are working on food in catastrophes, if any? DHS? FEMA? USDA (e.g. https://www.usda.gov/topics/disaster)? I assume that in catastrophes government coordination on food is key - the closest parallel that comes to mind is rationing in the UK after WW2. I'd be interested if there's anything public to read about departments' budgets for things like this, or how they're thinking about it.
Chiming in with another thank you for putting in the time to do this - I found it helpful.
One data point on your idea for a year-round blog: I would find it interesting to read, though it wouldn't change my donations as much as targeted holiday giving posts like these, since I currently donate yearly.
Yep, good point - that's a biggie.
Thanks for this - I found this useful, especially the details on your process for making the decision(s).
