Readers of this website know that I am always challenging them to get food stuffs in order because we never know when the next emergency will hit or how close for that matter. The above listed items are a very basic food supply.  A person needs to add vitamins and nutrients to this emergency diet to maintain bodily functions and overall health.
Another way to include essential vitamins and nutrients to your food supply is to stock up on sprouting seeds.  In an article  I wrote about sprouting, I mention that these tiny sprouts may be minuscule in size, but they are jam packed with with essential vitamins.
In addition to food, many preppers also buy powdered drink mixes, tea bags, and coffee to add a variety to just drinking water.
I get a chuckle every time I see a prep list that says you need 1 or even 2 gallons of water per person per day AND THEN their food lists are ALL DRIED FOODS that need water to be used.
We're working hard to finish up our new marketplace, where you'll be able to find all of your preparedness, homesteading and food storage needs. For those in hurricane areas: December first, remove your food that will expire in the next six months. That is a question that is often asked when it comes to emergency food storage, but, to be honest, there are no pat answers.
It is crucial to remember that you are establishing a home and food storage program that is designed to meet the needs of your family and not someone else's. The well-rounded, multi-layered approach outlined in the Blueprint helps you make sense of a wide array of preparedness concepts through easily digestible action items and supply lists. Print this list out and give it to family members or friends who can begin their own preparedness efforts. Should you prefer to avoid the do-it-yourself route to long term food storage there are certainly other options.


Oregon Food Bank works with a cooperative, statewide network of partner agencies to distribute emergency food to hungry families. We’ve come a long way in understanding essential nutrition, proper food packing science and ways of prolonging food sources. I thought I would simplify things and provide you with a shopping list to start your emergency food supplies. Remember, you are investing in your piece of mind.  If an unforeseen emergency occurs, your stress level will not be as heightened because you know that you are prepared for it.
The market will feature organic foods, preparedness supplies and unique solutions from local farmers and small businesses from around the country. Some people envision food storage as being a basement store room packed wall to wall and ceiling to ceiling with boxes, jars, tubs and barrels of foods of various types. Shop Weekend at Vermonts Essex Resort & Spa is a perfect getaway detectors, collapsible ladders, first emergency food supply list for one year aid kits, and. I know many people who research topics, watch movies, create lists and pages and pages of bookmarked websites that they can pull up at a moment’s notice. When it comes to supplies of food, there is plenty of advice to be had either online or in various publications.
Oregon Food Bank distributes donated food throughout a statewide network of more than 947 nonprofit, hunger-relief agencies serving Oregon and Clark County, Wash., and works to eliminate the root causes of hunger through education and advocacy. Government and industry experts recommend having at least a 72 hour supply of food and water on hand in order to cope with some sudden emergency.
Mind you, it is likely intended as a start, with the expectation being that you would be adding to your food storage with various other necessities.


This could be the same for you and your food supplies that are all written neatly in a binder or on a downloadable excel spreadsheet or parked on a DVD you bought online from a survival expert. What if the proverbial poop hits the fan and all your lists are just that; worthless words on pieces of paper. If you haven’t begun storing food for your family because you haven’t finished watching a DVD or your excel spreadsheet isn’t completely accurate with the quantities and current prices for all 1000 food items you need, you should try something else. What I want to give you is a simple food supply plan that can feed a family of 4 for a month, can be purchased in about one trip out and will cost you a few hundred dollars.
Use this plan if you haven’t started anything yet or simply need a jump start on your emergency food supply list for your home. Unless you have the next item.Honey – Honey as you probably know has been called the perfect survival food. A bottle for each of you would cost about $8.Water – I know this list was about emergency food supplies, but I will throw water in here too because if you are going to the trouble of taking care of food, you should knock out water at the same time. Act before you need this food and take care of your family.Next steps would be to work on medical supplies, and security.
