We should not see food shortages.
I pray that youíre right. What happens when workers donít show up or thereís an infection at these plants ? Todayís rationing was on kosher chicken, eggs, & bounty.

As per a family member who is a food distributor for a major kosher company. THERE IS ENOUGH FOOD AND CHICKEN. The problem is the hoarders. If someone buys 50 packs of chicken (true story, I saw the wagon) of course stores won't have enough! The companies can't make deliveries fast enough, so we see shortages

Yup. The hoarders are causing all the issues.
KFP food has been here since early January, so there's no issue with that besides people who buy too much.
So far we will be eating just chicken cutlets for the entire pesach because that's all we managed to get. We waited on line at KRM where they walked out and handed everyone waiting by the butcher bulk packs of cutlets straight off the truck.
I'm not who you think I am.

Good news?

Although the death toll is unfortunately climbing in the US right now, the mortality rate is actually dropping (for now) as more testing becomes available. Currently at 1.4%
Hopefully that percentage keeps dropping.

Wow. I was only able to get 2 packs of bottoms... Meal mart has enough chicken for the next year, KJ swore even if they stop shechting chicken today, they have enough for the entire klal yisroel for a good few months. People need to stop pretending all the chickens are dying.

But these weeks before pesach is when everybody always hoards. Why arenít the companies releasing far more ? One large supermarket ordered 200 cases of eggs & only got 20.

Because they can't keep up with the demand. Said family member told us he has never gotten such huge orders in the history of his career. This is not regular hoarding, its insanity. At this point of the year, distributors are usually only writing the post pesach orders as the groceries are not ordering chometz products anymore. Now they are still going full force with the chometz products. He claimed he has never seen this before.

A lot of shortages are due to workers not coming in due to illness.

This was the underlying fear behind hoarding

Do you know this as fact that there are factories with a labor shortage?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

They are not the same breed and also not the same farm.

Besides, the more chickens you sell the less eggs are produced :)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
