Question:

Dear Rabbi
It’s very slim here where I live to even get food shipped for Pesach and I don’t know yet about our local Kosher caterers, restaurants, stores about if they will be able to fulfill any more orders other than the one they have pending.
Rabbi, what if G-d forbid I could not even get any food that is Kosher for Pesach?
Baruch Hashem I ordered wine and Matzo and I think it will be enough, but I can’t even find Kosher for Passover shelf stable meals.
What is the Halacha if there is no food available? I have some jars of gefilte, I could be fine with that but I need more. These are unprecedented times right now.

I’m davening so much, along with all of Klal Yisroel, and I know Hashem will always help us.

May all of us and all at Dinonline and families be blessed with good health, parnassah tovah and nachas always and praying for all Yisroel.
הוֹדוּ לַי-ה-וָ-ה כִּי-טוֹב: כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ

Answer:

You are very correct. Klal Yisroel is right now going thru a very trying period, and there are many things that we have to get used to. In your situation, even if you are used to buying prepared food for Pesach, this year you might have to change you habit. If you can’t get what you are used to, then you can buy a Kosher for Pesach cookbook, ( you can get them online from Artscroll, or many other seforim stores. Buy the raw products, fruits and vegetables, meat  and whatever you can buy in your area that is Kosher for Pesach and cook the Pesach food the way our grandmothers did for all the generations. Yes it is a challenge, but it would seem that this is what H-shem might want you to do at this point.

Best wishes for a healthy safe and Happy Pesach, even with all of our challanges
