I could feed an army - ok a small army

I finally got around to doing an inventory of my 2 freezers and my pantry (I didn't even do the fridge freezer - so I have even more food than listed).

So I knew I had a bunch of stuff and wanted to use it up before we move (which will be sometime this summer) but didn't realize I had this much.

I will be doing a grocery exile (not buying food except for fresh product, milk & bread).
