Are you worried about experiencing imminent food shortages and famine? I cannot escape the feeling that I will die from starvation within the next few years. I live in a Prosperous European Nation. Please convince me otherwise.

You look cute. IDK get a garden and start growing potatoes, vegetables, spices ans get some chicken, after that some solar cells.

Depends where you live really, some countries are fairly self sufficient, particularly island nations like new zealand or the UK. It's more likely that you just won't have access to the same quality of food, probably have less meat available and things like that. That being said, growing your own food is generally a good idea. If you want to be seriously paranoid, the best move for a prepper is the get your hands on like 4 or 5 sheep, put all of your stuff in a wagon, and become a nomadic shepherd. You can get about 50% of your daily calories from sheep's milk products if you graze them well on empty lots and patches of grass and stuff, and forage the rest. Sheep are particularly practical because you can harvest their wool, not only to make things for yourself but also for trading/selling. This is actually a much better move than just stocking up on canned goods because it'll last you forever, as long as you keep breeding your sheep. We're probably not going to have severe food shortages, but we will definitely all be brought down a peg, probably to the level of a 3rd world country. It's simply the natural reasult of living in a collapsing empire. Now's a good time to learn to forage, grow some potatoes (picrelated), buy solar pannels and learn some practical skills fixing things which need fixing. Or you could always move to a more prosperous country. China won't be as kind to refugees as we have been, so the sooner the better before the mass migration starts.

I am deeply thankful for your response.
I am an awful communicator. I often upset others when I speak. I am also a House-Locked NEET. On this basis, I believe I have an insufficient aptitude for Nomadism.
Do You have any advice on learning to forage? I have downloaded [Food for Free - Richard Mabey]. I will begin reading it tonight and practicing tomorrow. If you have any objections to my plan, please share them with me.
I have measured my garden [344 sq ft]. I will use as much as it for gardening as my [Family] and [Desires] will permit. The image you shared was very inspiring. Thank You.

It seems our thoughts are motivated by very different {time-scale[s]}. I worry about famine within the next [1-3 Years]. You seem to consider the next [Few Decades]. Is my {Time Scale} assessment accurate?
With regards to my time-scale, should I stock up on Canned Goods? I don't plan for them to last forever, only to supplement my diet over the next few years.

With regards to your time-scale, should I aim to leave my country [UK]. Where should I move?
How long will it take for my country to deteriorate to [Third World Status]?

I would really recomend against foraging without an experienced forager to guide you at first unless you are extremely confident. The number one rule of foraging is if you're not absolutely 100% sure what it is, do not eat it. Nature can and will kill you if you eat the wrong thing. I too am a house locked NEET, so I've also been thinking about how nomadism would be tricky. Maybe fishing is a good plan b, although there's complications since fish were more plentiful in the past than they are now.
For a hikki like myself, I think an indoor hydroponics setup might be good too but they're kind of expensive it seems. I will do further research.
> I worry about famine within the next [1-3 Years]. You seem to consider the next [Few Decades]. Is my {Time Scale} assessment accurate?
Honestly it's hard to say, but I do think it's unlikely that there will be famine that soon. Maybe you know something that I don't, but the UK grows a lot of its own basic foods and should be able to sustain itself taking into account the efficiency of modern farming techniques, barring some extreme act of god tradgedy.
>With regards to my time-scale, should I stock up on Canned Goods? I don't plan for them to last forever, only to supplement my diet over the next few years.
It might be a good idea, but I wouldn't waste too much money on it.
With regards to your last two questions, I would say no one knows for sure, it depends on a lot of complicated factors which are hard to predict. I would reassure you that people in the 3rd world realy don't have it that bad as you may think. There are statistics about for example average wages, but in a country where most people are subsitance farmers, wages don't really give an accurate picture of their quality of life. A lot of issues in poorer places come from lack of infrastructure, but we already have that and even if it deteriorates, it's not going to vanish overnight, we can still make use of it. Northern europe also has lots of fertile land, comfortable weather conditions, not many severe natural disasters, these are all geographical factors which lead to it being the most "developed" in the first place, and they're not going to go away because of economic circumstances. Basically, life will be harder, but in the end you will probably be fine. Mass famine and starvation in post-green-revolution, post-industrial european society would be fairly unlikely by my esstimation. But still, it's never a bad idea to become more self sufficient.

Preparing for natural disasters is good but your fears are unfounded. The UK did fine during wartime rationing prior to the widespread use of glyphosphate and chemical fertilizers. Famine especially in a country with the lowest food prices in yurop is unlikely. Better off to stockpile a few months of food and be financially secure.

Starting a productive farm will be a substantial time investment: sowing, checking the weather, watching for pests and disease, harvesting, canning, etc.
