One of the best ways to ensure your family is prepared for no matter what is to have a useful, and plentiful, supply of stored food. Most of these items, perfect for long term storage, are extremely basic, and generally cheap to obtain, but they pack a major nutritional punch and can be cooked and baked into hundreds of different meals to keep your family, fed and satisfied. Cornstarch is a great tool in cooking, especially if you are trying to stretch your food supply with gravies and sauces. White vinegar last indefinitely on the shelf, and having it on hand is a must for the smart prepper. Beans are so cheap, easy to store and pack serious nutritional value that they are a no-brainer for any prepper to consider in their stockpile. Food grade buckets, mylar bags should be used whenever possible, and if oxygen is an enemy, o2 absorbers.
When stored properly, rice can stay good for 30 years or more making is a perfect long term storage food item. Not only is it important in everyday cooking, but it’s ability to preserve food will make it a popular item to not only have, but to barter with as well. Dried corn can be ground and used as cornmeal or in any recipe that calls for fresh corn too.
It is good for cooking and canning, but it is also a powerful natural cleaning agent and will be no doubt a popular barter item as well.

It is a great item to store, and a crowd pleaser and comfort food especially in survival situations. To Properly Store Dried Peas: Much like beans and other legumes, the best method is to pack them in a mylar bag with oxygen absorbers, once packed they will last for many years. I also like to upgrade my buckets with gamma lids, that allow you to screw the lids on and off easily so you can access foods in your stockpile without fumbling around with difficult bucket lids. However, to supplement your supply, there is nothing like storing some basic food staples to make sure your family never goes hungry.
To Properly Store Rice: Pack it in an airtight container, or food grade bucket, to keep oxygen and pests out.
To Properly Store Pasta: You can buy pasta that is packaged for the long term, or you can store them in mylar bags with oxygen absorbers. To Properly Store Pinto Beans: For the longest shelf life store them in mylar bags with oxygen absorbers.
You can actually buy granulated honey, which is all ready for long term storage and can be used like sugar, or reconstituted the gooey stuff itself.
Remember that baking soda absorbs odors, so you will want to keep it airtight and away from any of your other storage items.
Food Bricks are also great for stacking and accessing your foods, so you might consider them too.

Find out from a LDS Welfare Specialist for the assigned date for your area, or call the local cannery to make an appointment (non-members are welcome too). We can add a number of storage items like Best Canned Foods For Long Term Storage to accommodate these things, of course , this will depend on where the storage item should be used. Sometimes they allow walk-ins, or you can call and set up an appointment, but it depends on the cannery.When you go, make sure to bring your order form filled out in either the can or pouch column.
Please note when you are canning food the price for the packing material is included, so there is no need to order any. The option for ordering packing materials is mainly for those who plan on canning or sealing their items at home.Be prepared to come on time, work with others during the assigned shift, help fill everyone’s orders, and then clean up.
I am in need of food as I have paid all of my bills ahead but have run out of money and no one wants to hire someone for 5 weeks.
This is what happens when you make fun of your husband for having to wear a scout shirt each week.
