EXTENSION CONNECTION: Stock nutritious foods for natural disasters

Published: Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at 10:24 AM.

•If you don’t have a grill, try to broil or bake meat, fish or poultry prior to the hurricane so you can eat these soon after you lose electricity.

•When preparing meals, throw away uneaten portions. Do not eat any food that appears abnormal. Remember, “When in doubt, throw it out." Make eating and cleaning up simple and healthy!
