Search for "lds bishops storehouse" and there should be a directory to your nearest one. I think you also might be able to order online

There was an old Onion article to the effect of "Area Man Prepares Better for Acid Trip than Actual Trip"

Oh, you said LDS

From a mainline Christian perspective? Absolutely heretical-- and basically a cult for Christ. Their counterpoint would be that all other sects are in apostacy because the mainline churches have long been subverted, formalizing their own heresies as doctrine, with the most important elements of Jesus' teachings being lost...

Such a perspective earned the early Mormons no friends. Their experience was getting their prophet murdered and then getting run out of Missouri-- and not stopping until they got to Utah. Their sect has a real history of surviving persecution-- and unlike other Christians, it hasn't passed out of living memory. Thus, the LDS can offer valuable insights, like the manual mentioned in the OP.

You don't have to like, or even accept, their church to realize their experience is transferable to any group facing persecution-- which right now includes mainline Christians.

There's a kernel of truth to this if we look at all the modern progressive churches today.

A cult for the modern Mohammad, Joseph Smith.

First time hearing that comparison.

I don't think it fits so well, why do you think so?

Both men made up a religion to get their dick wet. When following the already-established rules of the religion would cause their dick to dry up a bit, they had sudden revelations with new rules most conducive to getting the founder back in his favorite hole.

They're both sex cults that have long since outlived their founder and purpose.

Absolutely true, but they're heretics who have lots of experience with emergency preparedness. They've got very helpful guides on food storage. They even run food stores where families can buy supplies at wholesale prices and you don't even have to be a Mormon.

LDS welfare location finder, you'll be looking for the closest Bishop's Storehouse.

EDIT: upon searching with the tool, not every storehouse is listed. (My local one wasn't, for instance.) You might have to reach out to your local Ward or Stake of the LDS to get a referral, depending on your region.
