Activity 2

Planning Ahead

family joint sealift - pooling resources so that you have

basic food on hand at the best prices

Today we are reliant on more than country food. There are basic store-bought foods that take up a lot of our budget.


Think about the foods that you need to have on hand, that you use daily.

What are some dried or canned foods you could

purchase in bulk? 

If you bought these foods as a case lot, you can save money. If you cannot afford this or use a full case of something, consider who you might split cases with. Look into the possibilities of joint purchases.
