Ready For Dinner
In the US alone there are over 3 million people preparing for the end of time, this sub-culture is known as Doomsday Preppers.
I connected with some of them to discuss their Armageddon Menu’s. They are designed around their religious beliefs, lifestyles, location, health and what they think will work on the heels of the disaster they predict.
Initially I expected this to be a rather sensational series but as I spoke to some of the subjects I actually was surprised by the brilliance in their approach. They have been able to stand back and see the whole food system form afar and realize in any kind of disaster the food distribution chain is the first thing to break and they don’t want to be left vulnerable, if and when it does…
I created dishes that they will potentially be eating once the system breaks and they have become self sufficient. Through their choices of these foods I think their personal story comes to life.
