Twice a year, Melissa C., a dynamic amazing sister in South Carolina, runs a multi-stake, multi-state Walton Feed order. Walton Feed is a food storage / bulk foods company in Idaho. Because Melissa combines orders over such a large area, she gets good discounts. In many cases, her price WITH shipping is less than the website's price WITHOUT shipping.
To keep the prices as low as possible, we ship the food out by truck. This means (a) we have to wait for the food to be delivered -- sometimes several months; and (b) when the food is delivered, everyone who ordered needs to help with the delivery. It is not a quick process; it takes about two hours. If you cannot lift, you can make sure things are organized properly and labels are facing out. It is amazing, but these simple, non-lifting tasks can cut the order time in half, and that's important!
This order is run entirely by volunteers. Nobody makes any money on this order except Walton Feed. This order is not endorsed by the Church. It is one of many ways to get food storage.
