From natural disasters to power outages to nuclear attacks, we're all at risk. One Hawley business man is helping people get prepared for the worst with Crisis Cuisine.
All you need is heat and water and you've got chicken noodle soup.
Shannon Deltener – Emergency Food Supplier: "It's comparable to anything you can buy in the store. If I can compare it to anything, it would be like the Lipton soup mixes or Lipton Instant Rice Mixes."
It also doesn't expire until 2026.
Shannon Deltener: “"The word behind it is preparedness."
Shannon Deltener sells emergency food products by Go Foods. There's everything from tortilla soup to cheese alfredo to pancake mix.
Shannon Deltener: "What difference can these products make? It can make a life or death difference."
Deltener says he's not trying to capitalize off of the Armageddon mentality, but wants people to be prepared for the worst.
Shannon Deltener: "Food travels throughout this country an average of 1500 miles to get to your plate and if anything, power outages, natural disasters, emergencies, got in the way of that system, we're down line are going to be in trouble with it."
Deltener got interested in emergency preparedness after a major power outage in Hawley two years ago.
Shane Deltener: "You couldn't do anything, you couldn't go to the bank, you couldn't put gas in your car and everything is so dependent on electrical activity."
So he began keeping up a three weeks supply of Go Foods products. About a month ago, he became a distributor through his own company, Crisis Cuisine.
So what does chicken noodle soup taste like from Crisis Cuisine? Well, I'm about to find out. It may not taste like your grandmother's soup, but I’ll get you through an emergency. An emergency that could happen anywhere, anytime.
Shane Deltener: "Every family needs to look at what's important to them."
