My state has a "recommended" stay at home order and our stores are starting to equalize their inventory, but they all have a limit of one type of item. Meaning you can buy hamburger, but only package even if it's 1# package. But you can also buy 1 rack of ribs, and 1 pork butt, or 1 package of steaks etc. We're trying to only shop every 7 to 10 days and so far I've canned a family pack of chicken breasts (cold pack with a little broth added), and two pork butts. I cold smoked some of the pork for 2 hours, then baked it with some plain cubes until it was lightly browned, and hot packed it all. I like the smoked pork for sandwiches, the the regular pork has unlimited uses. I think I have about 25 of the 1.5 pint jars left, and maybe 24 pints which is way more than we need, so it will make good surprise gifts.
