How long is a while, less than 28 days?

Scrounge up veggies and maybe uncooked fish.

thawed frozen peas work great, just pop off the skin and they love um! i think potatos would be too hard for them. worms from the yaed maybe?? you should be able to get somthing at the market cheap, unless your snowed in or somthing.

I think the potatoes would probably give them constipation, assuming that they'd eat them in the first place. Spinach, lettuce or peas would be my first choices. If not, just let them go hungry until you can get some more food.

Rememeber most malawian's can go for several weeks if need be, however a head of ramain should be $2, recycle some cans or something.

Freez the letuce to have it keep.
