I can only come to one conclusion of why any one would buy MREs. For some very hungry people to eat, and lots of those people at that by those
numbers. 13 truck loads is about 10 skids, with 200 cases per skid, and 12 meals per box. That is alot of food, I would put it in a bomb shelter near
the Dooms Day Vaults being filled with seeds. But that is just me...
One other thing, MRE does not really stand for Meals Ready to Eat, it actually stands for Meals Rejected by Ethiopians.

I count 312,000 Meals. Enough for 312,000 people for a day maybe?
In other words, it would feed .000104% of the USA population for one day.
That is not a "large amount" of food in my book. No where near enough to sustain people who must live through a catastrophic disaster.

OK, so here is an update.
I called today and spoke with George the owner.
He says that the webpage has not updated the warning because they are no longer going to restock on MRE's due to rising prices.
Yes FEMA did buy 13 truckloads but that was a few weeks after Katrina.
And if I want he will give me a 2 for 1 deal on MRE's.
So this company hasn't updated it's website in over 2 years? Yet they still have enough stock to sell you 2-1 MRE's... when they were supposedly
almost sold out almost 2 years ago? When does he plan on "not-restocking"
Something is fishy there...
