Food collapse unfolding in Greece: Grocery store shelves to be stripped bare… supermarkets raided… home gardens now the new ‘secret weapon’ against starvation

That moment has now arrived for the citizens of Greece. With cash disappearing, grocery store shelves are on the verge of being stripped bare across the country, and some citizens are beginning to raid grocery stores in desperately thefts to acquire enough food to prevent their own starvation.

Some Greeks are already dumpster diving for food, and one citizen told The Telegraph, “Sometimes I’ll find scrap metal that I can sell, although if I see something that looks reasonably safe to eat, I’ll take it. Other times you might find paper, cans, and bottles that you can get money for if you take them back to the shops for recycling.”

In Athens, one group of so-called “anti-establishment groups” raided a grocery store, stole the goods and fled on foot. [2] This is just the first of many such raids we’ll see on grocery stores in the coming days, of course.

The AP article quotes Greek citizen Ilias Mathes, who grows vegetables alongside raising chickens and goats. “I have my lettuce, my onions, I have my hens, my birds, I will manage,” he tells AP. “We will manage for a period of time, I don’t know, two months, maybe three months…”

During those few months, other Greek citizens who don’t have home gardens may be starving, rioting in the streets, and bartering anything they can get their hands on for food.

City dwellers, in particular, usually don’t grow their own food, relying on factory food companies to keep the grocery store shelves fully stocked. But when the cash disappears, even grocery stores aren’t able to purchase inventory to sell. Scared urban dwellers quickly panic because they have no knowledge of how to grow their own food (i.e. they are entirely dependent on the system).

One day soon, you will thank yourself that you paid attention to the importance of growing your own food at home. Just as the citizens of Greece are now learning, finding yourself with no cash, no food and no options is now a very real possibility. Because remember: Whatever unfolds in Greece today will arrive in America tomorrow…
