(NaturalNews) In an effort to deliver emergency organic food directly to the many victims of the super-tornado that recently struck Oklahoma City, the editor of Natural News is pledging $10,000 in food and cash donations to the victims of the Oklahoma City super tornado. This donation will largely consist of the storable organic preparedness foods we manufacture at the Natural News Store: whole wheat pasta, quinoa and other items packed in steel #10 cans for long-term shelf life and durability.
Natural News and the Health Ranger will also be delivering emergency salt supplies as well as stabilized rice bran superfoods to help with the nutritional needs of tornado victims.
"Those of us who are in the emergency foods manufacturing industry have a unique duty to help our fellow Americans who are in need," explained Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, editor of NaturalNews.com. "Our organic food manufacturing facility is in Austin, Texas, so it's close enough to Oklahoma to be able to rapidly get these foods into the hands of those who can benefit from them."
To help coordinate the distribution of storable foods to Oklahoma tornado victims, Mike Adams called Operation USA and spoke with them about the plan. A representative named Richard confirmed that Operation USA had just now set up a distribution shelter in Oklahoma City and would try to get the shipping address for the relief shelter.
"While we await the shipping address, we are pulling products from our shelves at the Natural News Store warehouse and preparing to palletize them for shipment," said Adams. The Natural News Store hopes to have all the food shipped out by Friday so that it might arrive in Oklahoma City by Saturday or Sunday. Adams notes, however, that severe weather may further impair the delivery of supplies on a timely schedule.
Adams says he will make sure the Natural News donation makes it to Oklahoma City even if Operation USA is unable to coordinate the logistics. "One way or another, we will make sure our storable organic food makes it from Austin, Texas to Oklahoma City."
Natural News is just one of many companies making donations to Oklahoma tornado victims.
In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
