City of Chaffee Boost’s Emergency Supplies

The City of Chaffee, Missouri, has bought enough freeze-dried food to serve 25,000 meals in the event of a future disaster. With a 6-2 vote Monday, the Chaffee City Council approved spending $4,000 for food with an expected shelf life of two decades that is now kept in the back of the city’s fire house at 222 N. Main St. The city council was informed that the food had an estimated retail value of $37,522 and is grateful the previous owner was willing to sell it at a greatly reduced price. This funding is being provided emergency preparedness fund and over $7,000 is left over after the purchase.
