Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Austrian grocers to hand out food rations during blackouts”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Austria unveiled emergency measures on Tuesday to secure food and other essentials for people in the event of blackouts this winter. The plan, published on the country’s Ministry of Agriculture, Regions and Tourism website, decrees that all grocery stores in Austria are to remain closed on the first day of a potential blackout.

On the second day, stores are to remain closed but act as centres from which bags of fresh produce will be given to residents, between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm. 

Additionally, the stores will offer prepared bags with water, long-life bread, canned goods, convenience products, and candles to be sold for cash. Baby items and hygiene products will be made available on request.

All major Austrian retailers have agreed to the scheme, including Spar, Maximarkt, Billa, Penny, Lidl, Frisch, Unimarkt, M-Preis, and others.

Residents were advised to stock up on food with a long shelf-life and keep a 14-day supply at home, as well as to keep small denominations of cash in the amount of around €100 per family member.
