When disaster strikes, there’s a pretty good chance your local grocery stores are going to be stripped bare in a matter of hours.
To be prepared to face an emergency situation where food supplies are blocked, you need to invest in a long-term food supply. With the help of suggestions that have come in from our readers, we have compiled a list of the top food items and emergency supplies that you can buy at the grocery store. Comfort foods can be a huge morale booster during a stressful survival situation, something that needs to be kept in mind when starting to stockpile food.
The following categories of food make up the foundation of most recipes, and are all things that store well. Soft grains: These soft grains will last around 8 years at 70 degrees, sealed without oxygen.
The following items are great for short-term emergencies, and will stay fresh for a long period of time. Ramen Noodles – not the greatest food in the world but they are very cheap so they made the survival food list. The public has been warned on so many levels, that there is a very big possibility of an earthquake. A few other ideas, organic popcorn is a good addition and several bottles of an organic Non- GMO ( no dyes, no hydrogenated oil) powdered protein drink with all the essential vitamins and minerals. So, buying directly from a beekeeper is probably the only way to be truly sure that you’re getting pure, raw honey. To Frank: Frank, judging from your insensitive and age degrading comments, I suspect you are fairly young and trying hard (too hard) to be funny. I think it’s pretty arrogant to suggest that you are somehow better equipped to survive because of your age. You can bet that there are a lot of oldtimers out there that are going to be far better off than some of the ignorant youth we have in today’s society.
For those that doubt what someone in their 70’s can do I think you need to take a look at this video and see what a true survivalist is made of.
Random Things Instead of a Name I hate to think there are people in the world as ignorant as you are trying to prove yourself. Went through the boy scouts when it was still worth something and was taught how to survive, the manual of arms, marching and the morris code.
Thank you ,Jerry,I am up in age also but I can still walk 25 miles a day and hunt and bag enough food in one day to feed a few survivors. Jerry, I am 68 and I can do very few of what you named, however I can grow a garden, survive off the land, and mostly, make a survival kit and have the ammo to keep it in my possession, along with a bit of gold and silver.
While his tone was off, the idea of an older person needing diapers or prune juice might not be far off.
Having said that, I am surprised how many people my age (40) don’t know how to tie a proper knot other than to tie their shoes. Yep, we will keeping on keeping on while the try to figure out a way to get online with no electricity. And as for everybody else, me and my hubby and baby girl are starting to get out bug out bags ready, this website has helped me out a lot and I appreciate all the suggestions on here! Making a survival food list for short-term emergencies (a week or less) is all about getting as many calories as possible to sustain energy.

Survival food manufacturers offer a dizzying array of fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, grains, breakfasts, lunches, suppers, desserts, snacks and drinks all packaged for long-term storage. Many survival food stores offer 72 hour, 1 week, 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and 12 month supplies of food, bundled into convenient, nutritionally-balanced packages. TIP #1: The year’s supply is usually cheaper than buying the same ingredients separately, but you can save money by picking up certain items (spices, pasta, rice and dried sauces, for example) at supermarkets, rather than the survival food store. Below is a compilation of common freeze-dried or dehydrated survival foods available from manufacturers like Saratoga Farms (TM), Mountain House and Provident Pantry. Eric Allie’s Furious DiaperTracking cell phones in Chicago April 9, 2015Here’s one story on this.
From panicked people trying to stock up on last minute supplies, to those who failed to prepare for even short-term disasters and now find themselves facing the prospect of starving, your local grocery store is going to look like a battleground in a post-apocalyptic movie.
That means even short-term disasters like hurricanes, floods and earthquakes can cause supply chain problems that will quickly wipe out their inventory. This supply should be made up of six months’ worth of emergency food that has a long-shelf life, and is something that you already eat. The list contains foods with a long shelf life, items that have multiple uses, and supplies that are great for bartering. These four things can be stored for over 10 years, and are a great way to add a little bit of flavor to your cooking. During most disasters you’re going to want to have food that requires very little cooking, or can be eaten without any preparation at all.
I would steer away from processed sugar, it lowers immunity for up to 8 hours after ingestion.
The only positive about Frank’s comment is to see the kind outpouring of responses from other people.
I was about to the point that I might have been able to do a double diamond hitch by myself a while back. Probably unlike most people we have a plan that includes my parents and they in turn have been prepping themselves and boxing up food items, Do not underestimate the elderly they have plenty to offer. Yes Frank was rude,however youthful partners would be a must.Sad to say but the emotions im hearing is a weakness.fact is itll be survivle of the fittest AND smartest! They did it the hard way, time consuming but it was the right way and having patience and they were healthier as far as what they ate and didn’t have all the toxins that are in everything today. She doesn’t know what items she needs so she asked someone to send her a list by making the request on the comments section of a random blog article. I really hope the day never comes where any of you need to use your BOB’s, but if the SHTF then best of luck to you three.
Buying a year’s supply will set you back anywhere from $1,000 - $4,000, but is a good way to stock your emergency food coffers without a lot of thought.But if you’d prefer to build your own supply (recommended) you can get exactly what you want. Off-the-shelf dehydrated foods that are then vacuum-sealed will last for decades and can cut costs by 50% or more. When the game are all gone, our stores of supplies are gone, and we are all in a position that we are starving, he can serve a purpose.
All of my grandparents have passed, I’m so glad I paid attention to the things they had to teach me and wish they were here to teach me more.
Since moisture is removed, much of the original flavor returns when water is reintroduced.These foods are usually freeze dried or dehydrated, then sealed in a #10 can.

You might save some money too, especially if you already own a vacuum sealer and food dehydrator. I’ve stood in the long, slow, lines at Walmart, watching desparate people rushing around, grabbing whatever they could to fill their carts.
They lived thru the depression and have knowledge to offer for survival and skills that are all but lost now.
I have no doubt that if the time ever comes where survival skills are needed the older folks will do just fine especially with a lot of family support .Thanks again for putting that guy in his place for the rude comment he made about Mrs. My Grandmother canned and taught me how to grow and preserve food naturally…thank God for the good old days! Show some respect or maybe someone might come along and give you a list of survival tips of your own. I have family that are over 90yrs old that are the only ones under 33yrs old that aren’t in some way reliant on thier elders.
This can size is standard for survival food packaging and is like the feed-a-small-army cans found in the grocery sections of your local Taj-Mart or BuckingSam Palace. They are the only ones that are handling this poor economy without bating an eye….They have been there before!!!!! He can supply us with that much needed sustenance that we are all going to need to continue the fight. Having someone with experience and knowledge about how to survive in case of a world crisis – I would definitely want on my side to teach me the ways. So don’t make the mistake of thinking everyone in my generation would be dead in a week. Though in an emergency food is food, there’s no sense in adding stress at the dinner table if you can avoid it.
I’m going to use the skills taught to me by my grandfather and father, which I will in turn teach my own son. Just as we’ll need you, your gonna need the god fearing, hard working young bucks just as much.
If you are lucky enough to have members of the older grenerations in your family pay attention to what they can teach you they are a wonderful sourse of knowledge. And by the way, I am a vet and wan USAF Specops embedded in Honduras and Panama and am almost a senior citizen. We seniors have a lot more to fight for because we see a lot more that has been taken away from us. I also grew up with a Grandfather that was Seneca-Iroquois and learned at a very young age what plant life you could eat and not as well as what makes the best medicines, but don’t think for a minute, that , if that was all gone, and I was starving, that I would eat Frank.
I prefer the older generation 100x over the younger generation who feel they are ‘entitled’ whether they work for it or not! This will also help you practice the re-hydration and other preparation techniques for cooking freeze-dried food.
