335. I am not particuliarly concerned about myself
If I take a short drive (or bike ride or walk) out of town, there are vast fields of crops and herds of livestock. Often someone is selling something. There are several food companies of all types within a 50 mile radius. Because of this, many common food items are currently less expensive than most of the country. I don't think that it is unreasonable to say that we will continue to have some food products available for sale even if other parts of the world/country don't.
If worst comes to worst, we live on a large city lot, have a flat roof, and a three car garage. That should be enough room for raising enough food for our family.
If things would get that bad though, I expect that the whole social order would collapse and that might be only one of our worries. For example, I am not sure how we'd survive the Wisconsin winter without a source of heat.
