This really worries me -- because when people ask me what disaster supplies they should have, the first thing I always say is "Buy 20 lb. bags of rice."

Without having things like this and beans on hand in people's personal disaster supplies, your only alternative during disasters is all the processed, fatty, salty, sugary convenience foods that the relief organizations are going to offer.
