With health officials advising social distancing to help slow the spread of Covid-19 and schools and offices closing for the next few weeks, having a well-stocked pantry and a plan for how to use it is a must. Here are our suggestions for what to stock and what to cook for the next few weeks.
The list below covers a lot of ground, but isn’t exhaustive. Don’t feel like you need to stock up on everything. If your family doesn’t ever really eat yogurt or frozen shrimp, no need to stock those items. Double up on the items that you DO eat regularly so you know you’ll have good food choices for the coming days and weeks.
Also, friends, let’s not add to the panic. Stock up on what you need for roughly two weeks, and leave the rest on the shelf for your neighbors. If you’re feeling generous, pick up some extra to give to shelters in your area.
