Emergency Food Supplies

Top things to consider when planning your emergency food supply needs.

Emergency Food Supply: Building a well-stocked emergency food supply is paramount. This includes non-perishable items such as canned goods, dry grains, beans, pasta, and shelf-stable foods with long expiration dates. Aim for a diverse selection to ensure nutritional variety and consider foods that require minimal preparation and water.

Water: While not a food item, water is essential for survival, especially during a food shortage. Ensure you have an adequate supply of clean drinking water stored, accounting for both drinking and hygiene needs. Additionally, consider methods for water purification in case your supply runs low or becomes contaminated.

Knowledge and Skills: Equip yourself with knowledge and skills related to food sourcing, preservation, and preparation. Learn about foraging for wild edibles, gardening, and basic food preservation techniques such as canning, drying, and fermenting. Having the ability to grow your own food, identify safe wild foods, and make the most of limited resources significantly increases your chances of survival during a food shortage.
