Note- The majority of images shown throughout this article are from ANP readers that have generously taken the time and effort to document what they are seeing, upload them and send them to ANP, although there are a few (which will be marked) from social media that we feel readers absolutely have to see. Also – Images did come to ANP after this article was ready to publish, so they will be added to the next food crisis update.
Images from your local stores can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, if comfortable doing so, please add the name of the store and at least the state.
New reports, including from the MSM which tells us how bad the food crisis is becoming here in America when the establishment media cannot deny it any longer, are showing some very different food category shortages, along with the ones we have been seeing over the last year-plus.
TRUTH LIVES on at https://sgtreport.tv/
A small sample of the newer shortages are paper goods which after the initial pandemic panic shopping caused a massive shortage of paper towels and toilet paper, seemed to level out, but we see now paper goods are expected to become in short supply again.
Via Taste of Home:
Up first is an item that we’ve seen at the top of shortage lists in the last two years—toilet paper. Marketplace reports that we should expect to see shortages of TP, along with paper towels and other paper goods, as paper mills struggle to keep up with demand and supply chain issues abound. Of course, it’s probably thanks to this that stores like Costco continue with temporary item limits.
Seems old shortages are about to become new again, but please let me reiterate a point we tried to make during the first serious wave of shortages.
While we all need paper goods, especially toilet paper, food and water should always be more of a priority than paper items, because really, who wants to starve to death while surrounded with toilet paper?
For that very reason, we will add links to the toilet paper, paper towels and other goods of that type, towards the end of the article, and focus first on consumables.
Other items include, juice boxes, baby formulas, and cream cheese, added with the shortages we previously reported on, including Lunchables, eggs and meat, pet food, and cream cheese. Those are only the shortages listed at the Taste Of Home article.

Interestingly, we note that images sent to ANP from two different states, show the same shortages in frozen/refrigerated potato products. We previously had warned that potatoes were to become another category of shortages foods in 2022.

According to CNN (if they are reporting it, things must be worse than even we imaged!), other items will be breads, meats, canned soups, and cleaning products.
Different causes are listed from labor shortages to transportation issues, the new and much milder Omicron, weather, and a change of eating habits. While it is handy to know the different reasons being blamed, in our minds it is much more important to help people get prepared, find items still in stock. It is also obvious by the timing of these MSM articles they are trying very hard to offer reasons other than Biden’s policies for yet another wave of shortages.
If one is looking at an empty plate, the different excuses as to ‘why’, aren’t going to matter much to them.
The hashtag [#BareShelvesBiden] began trending in October 2021 and resurfaced on January 10 as many complained they were unable to find staple items like pasta, canned goods, and pet food.
Grocery store shoppers are seeing bare shelves rivaling that of the beginning of the pandemic due to supply chain issues, inclement weather, and staff shortages caused by the new Covid-19 variant, Omicron.
In Midland County, Michigan, locals say they are being forced to buy what’s available, rather than purchase what’s on their grocery list.
County resident Nichole Taylor told Midland Daily News, “(There’s) not as much variety as there used to be, especially with paper goods, household cleaning items such as laundry products, soft drinks and even frozen items.”
Slipping in an image seen on social media on January 17, because it is simply too astoundingly unbelievable to describe without visual proof, we see that some shelves are full….. of all the same product!!!!!
If that wasn’t so sad, it would be funny.
So via the CNN article admitting the problem, breads, canned soups and meats…. (Note – The cleaning products will be down towards the bottom with the paper goods because I am prioritizing the consumables)
