The question in my mind is not why would you store extra food rather why wouldn't you store extra food?
Plenty of countries have empty grocery store shelves but most people haven't experienced that before in America.
The price of food will only go up so why not "invest" in some food. Got a 401k? Some stocks? Little extra cash? Only makes sense to have some paper money converted to a commodity that will only go up in $.
