Like many in today’s world, we have historically had easy access to the food and supplies we need to live happy and healthy lives. We have been fortunate that when we want something, we just go and get it. Recent events have begun to challenge that sense of comfort and confidence that this will always be the same. We have come to the realization that food and fuel shortages, even access to stores have become real concerns. And if we could not get necessities, what about those that were less fortunate.
We began searching online for resources and information on how to prepare for the next major event. We found much content directed at the LDS (Mormon) community who are required to keep up to a years’ worth of food on-hand at all time. It’s hard to envision feeding my family on 50 lbs. of wheat and sugar. The rest was strictly “Prepper” sites that talked about the end of the world, how to build bunkers, and stock up on ammo.
That is why we created Primed Life. We feel like it is reasonable and appropriate to plan for life’s challenges by storing food, medicine, and other supplies for your family. Our mission is to facilitate planning, acquisition, and management of food and supplies for the next major life event through education, tools, and community.
We aim to redefine what it means to prepare for whatever circumstances present themselves. It does not have to be just the next Pandemic. It could be personal adversity such as the loss of a job or a death in the family. So as not to be mistaken for others in this space we embrace the idea of being “Primers” participating in “Primed Life”.
