Macey’s Donation Helps Renovate Primary Children’s Angel Garden

Thank You for Helping Make The Angel Garden a Reality 

The Angel Garden at Primary Children’s Hospital reopened Monday, August 1 as a redesigned refuge for patients, families and staff — thanks to generous donations from our guests.

The garden renovation was made possible from Macey’s generous guests with an additional contribution from Macey’s Food stores, totaling in $73,000 for Macey’s 2016 Caring for Kids Drive. Over 1,000 new plants were added to the garden, including the 5-foot butterfly statue commissioned out of bronze.

“We know miracles happen each day at Primary Children’s—and as your local grocer, we are humbled to help the children and families at Primary Children’s,” said Darin Peirce, division manager Associated Retail Operations.  “Macey’s Food Stores are happy to help make the renovation of the Angel Garden possible, as we know that some of the best medicine is found in nature where children can feel the sunshine, hear birds chirping, enjoy the beautiful pond and get a breath of fresh air.”

For nearly two decades, the Angel Garden has provided Primary Children’s patients, parents, and staff a place of solace, healing, and calm. Located near the hospital entrance, the garden includes lighting that can be programmed to change colors with holidays and seasons and a water feature mimicking a mountain stream and pond. The Angel Garden is medically safe, and includes wheelchair-accessible pathways and electrical outlets for medical devices. It also maintains its legacy monuments, including the Celebration of Life plaque, Memorial Tree, and centerpiece Butterfly Angel statue.

We would again like to thank our generous guests who helped make this donation possible.

Food Storage Newsletter- August 2016

Pantry_000014389834_XXXLarge

SURVIVAL RULES OF 3

Are you familiar with the Survival Rules of 3?  The emergency preparedness and food-storage experts explain it like this:

In an extreme situation you cannot survive for more than:

  • 3 minutes without air
  • 3 hours without shelter
  • 3 days without water
  • 3 weeks without food

Our Newsletter this month focuses on the third and fourth Survival Rules—Food and Water.

 READY TIP:  Be Prepared with Plenty of Food and Water  

 Water: 

To be adequately prepared for any emergency or disaster, health agencies recommend you store 1 gallon of water per person per day. For a 72-hour emergency kit, you need 3 gallons of water per person.  For each gallon of water, plan on drinking 2 quarts and using 2 quarts for personal hygiene each day. It might be difficult to store a year’s supply of water, but it is such a necessity, it would be a good idea to try and store 14 gallons of water per person, to last about 2 weeks.

When storing water in clear plastic containers, it is important to store them in areas with low light and heat and keep the containers off the floor. Pallets, bricks or shelving should be used to store your water supply. Commercially packaged water comes with a best-by date and should be rotated or replaced about every 4 years. If you must use older stored water, the taste can be improved by pouring the water back and forth between two containers.

 Food: 

Adults typically need 2200 to 2800 calories per day in an emergency situation; children typically need less–about 1400 calories per day. When planning your emergency food storage, consider how much each person in your family typically eats in a day and match the caloric value of long-term food storage products. Most people start their emergency food storage by preparing a 72-hour kit for each family member. Over time, it is good to increase your amount of long-term food and supplies. Long-term food storage buckets and bulk food storage should typically include enough supplies for three months. Purchasing pre-packaged emergency food kits are helpful, because they take up less space and take out a lot of the guesswork.

 A Note About “Shelter”:  Don’t forget that Maceys and Augason Farms can definitely assist on the “Shelter” front with our National Geographic product line. From emergency tarps and blankets, to fire starters, to flashlight radios, we’ve got you covered.

Emergency Food Storage AND Everyday Meals

It is easier to preempt unforeseen circumstances than being caught in them. Don’t we all agree to that? But emergencies can arise from a variety circumstances, whether stormy weather prevents a trip to the grocery store or a natural disaster requires an evacuation from your outdoor adventure sites. What matters most is how well prepared you are in such times.

You might come to believe that this is not a matter of worry since you have all the gear and grains that can ride you through a few rough days. It takes more than just to have your everyday food to help you stay ahead.

As much as you think you might be prepared for the best and worst, have you thought about the time when things don’t go as planned? Do you have the knowledge and resources for surviving during emergency situations like floods, extended power outages, earthquakes and hurricanes? The first concern that comes to your mind is how to stay fed and nourished when help might be miles away?

The Tailor your Flavor program is designed to take worry out of the equation. These meals are designed for dual use: daily, as a quick and easy meal when needed, or for long term food storage in case of a sudden emergency. With their extended shelf life, they are a tasty and nutritional solution whether enjoyed today or a few years from now.

The following 11 Augason Farms meals and drinks are easy to prepare (just add water!) and easily stored in a pantry or under the bed: 

  • Granola with Blueberries and Milk
