WHAT kind of food we store up is not as important as just making sure we HAVE some emergency food stored up.
Emergency food preparation is simply storing up enough foods to get us through any situation that may come our way.
Freeze Dried Survival Food Options
For MANY folks the easiest option when stockpiling groceries is to simply purchase food units such as the Mountain House freeze dried units.
It may not be within your budget to get a whole year’s supply at once, but if you get several cases at a time, before you know it you have enough to last a year.
With freeze dried foods such as Mountain House – there is no need to fear about it going bad on you.. Most of it has 10 – 20 years of shelf life!
Emergency Food Rations
…or army style MRE’s which is what most of us think when we think “rations”.
The MRE’s are a vacuum packed food package with a complete meal in each one.
MRE’s and It’s Advantages
Each Entree Meal is Pre-Cooked, Ready-to-Eat Can be Eaten Hot or Cold Straight from the Pouch Long 5+ Year Shelf-Life Complete Meal in One Package Great for Emergency Evacuation No Cooking, Preparation or Water Needed (except beverage)
Survival Food List
And there is always the ongoing survival food list for all the items we REALLY do not want to run out of right away – should we have no access to a grocery store for a few weeks or months.
If you are storing food items, they need to be stored in a cool dry place and rotated every six months.
One of the easiest ways to keep your survival food rotated is to store it with your main grocery food supply and just keep it rotated as you use it.
