I was just scrounging the internets for some interesting takes on Post Apocalyptic food. So if you supply of Soylent Green runs out, why not visit Cosco? This is via The Acknowledge My Hippo Blog,

Perhaps I should order few, looks like there could be a food shortage coming on soon. Or perhaps this guy can help (if you are in the usa). Or perhaps you can raid the Seed Vault (if you are in Norway) to grown your own. This video is from the BBC about potential food shortages:
