We need to be prepared for any emergency and fresh food will not hold up for long term use.  Dried food and emergency canned food & water it necessary for survival.  That is why during WW1 & WW2 that almost every one had a victory garden and dried or canned food for the family & extended family.  Some friends with gardens shared or traded their fresh veggies for other things.  You can't rely on freezing.  If the power goes out you need a generator and to run that 24hr a day need fuel.  If the power is out then you can't pump fuel at the fuel station. It's called self preservation.
