Mom – This is Dedicated to Your Families Well Being in an Emergency Survival Situation!

…What if he losses his job…
…What if we can’t access our money…
…What if I can’t go to the grocery store for diner tonight (grocery store selves are empty)…
…How long will the food I have in the pantry last…
…Everything in the freezer has spoiled, now what am I going to feed my family?

All very good questions. Now the short easy answer prepper food is to get a three month supply of emergency survival food. Freeze dried food has up to a 25 year self life and is a no-cook no-prep food. Meaning it’s precooked food, just add water and a great tasting meal is ready in the blink of an eye.

Alright, what a pitch right? It’s not as it seemed. I do believe in freeze dried food but, I believe more, that you should do what ever feels right to you! If you would feel better storing your own food, the food you are eating on a daily basis, than please move forward and stock up. If your eating from your garden already then start canning. If your pantry is over stocked with canned goods find more space somewhere else for the overflow. Hit all the sales, buy at the bulk stores, clip coupons (did you know you can use a coupon for each item on a buy one get one free offer. You can also use a buy one get one free coupon on a buy one get one free promotion. In other words by taking the time to clip coupons you could be getting a discount on a free item or getting free stuff altogether.) what ever it takes to provide for your families well being.

i.e. food in a time of hunger.

Seems a bit far fetched… well, may be, but what seems far fetched to me is having to beg family and friends to feed your kids because you did not take the time to do simple preparation for you families well being. This emergency survival food does not need to be complicated. The easiest is the freeze dried emergency survival food I talked about earlier, or you should start buying more of the canned foods you normally buy. When you run out of room in the pantry, and look for other places to store your food, make sure you have a system in place to rotate your food.

Another thing you need to think about is water. You need to store water no doubt about it. You can get different size containers to store water in, from 5gals. to 55 gals. My advice to you is to get new barrels not used and I’ll tell you why. I fear that over time the used barrels, even thoroughly cleaned, may leach into your drinking water. They say when storing water plan on one gallon per person for consumption (food prep and to drink) and one gallon for hygiene, two gallons a day per person. I live in central Fl. and I can drink a gal. a day that’s with out cooking anything; so I say plan on storing two gallons a day for consumption and a gallon for hygiene, three gallons a day per person. It’s better to have too much and not need it, than to need more than you stored. The last thing is to make sure they are FDA approved food grade containers.
