Once the hail, howling winds, and driving rain passed, we ventured out to find our home still in tact.
I moved from tornado alley and today I live in a hurricane zone which took a major hit in 2004.
Consider the needs of babies, the elderly or anyone with special dietary concerns or allergies in your family. For those in hurricane areas: December first, remove your food that will expire in the next six months. Crackers, Peanut Butter and Jelly or Honey - I choose crackers because bread has a short shelf life.
Ready-to-eat Rice - These vacuum packages of rice require neither refrigeration nor water to prepare. Tuna, Chicken, Turkey - Canned meats or meats in a pouch can be eaten with the rice, couscous or on crackers.
Granola or Cereal Bars - Traditional breakfast of bacon and eggs or cold milk with cereal won’t be available. Nuts - Cans or jars of peanuts, almonds or mixed nuts offer high snacking nutrition without taking up much space. Our 275 Serving Food Supply Kit provides healthy, quick-prep meals that store for up to 20 years*, and only take 20 minutes to make from start to finish.
The recipes for our 275-serving Food Supply Kit are made from high-quality ingredients that have our entrees bursting with flavor and nutrition. Packaged in a weather-proof bucket that is easily stacked to conserve space, our 275-serving kit can be stored up to 20 years in a cool, dry area*.
Thirty days of delicious easy-to-prepare emergency food for 1 person, or a family of 4 for one week—all packed in an easily transportable, watertight 7-gallon pail. Bulk emergency food purchase is a smart move for many different reasons ranging from cost to long-term emergency readiness. As some of you may know, previous articles have talked about emergency management experts recommending that you have a three day supply of emergency essentials on hand in the event of a disaster.

When someone that supposedly is an expert recommends only a three day supply, then some may assume the crisis or any crisis will be over in three days. A three day supply is ample if a transformer blows up or if someone strikes a pole and the power is out for 24 or 48 hours, for example, but recent and not so recent events have proven that power disruptions can last for days if not weeks in some cases. One of the problems some face is how to determine how much and what type of emergency foods you need, and even where to buy the food, where and how to store the food, and will it last and be fresh and edible during an emergency.
There is a remedy offered by Mountain House that takes the guess work out of what to buy and how much, how to store and shelf life. Customized meal planning, could not be any simpler, you can now purchase 2, 3, 4, and 5 day kits. Buying emergency foods that no one likes to eat is an added burden you don’t need during a crisis, so know what the food tastes like before stocking up. Every pouch in these kits has a Taste Guarantee of 12+ years, freeing you from the hassle of constant food rotation. Note how much space is required for two weeks of food, using simple math, you could easily determine how much space you would need to store 2, 6 and 12 months of food and the food is shelf stable for 12 plus years, so no guessing whether the food is edible during an emergency. The food tastes great, and I always have a few meals in my go-bags, and several in the car, and of course, some in the pantry. I had been buying individual meals here and there at various camping stores and other retail outlets and then I realized I was buying pretty much the same meals.
They have the nutrition and calories of a full meal but have a long shelf life and take up little space. Each serving costs about the same as the change in your pocket, but provides a healthy, low-cost substitute for fast food. Savor the comforting essence of Creamy Potato Soup or the family-pleasing Tortilla Soup for lunch or dinner, or start the day off right with a heart-healthy bowl of oatmeal. Although typically thought of as an emergency food, it is taste, nutrition and convenience that are now making our entrees legitimate alternatives for daily use, as well as the perfect solution for any outdoor or camping activity.
Finally Wise Foods has bulk purchasing ranging from a 1 month (240 servings) supply to a 12 month supply (4320 servings).

We have recommended in the past that you have at least a one week supply on hand and that two weeks is ideal.
If the power is out for a week you will be hungry for only four days instead of the entire seven, so any preparedness you do is a step in the right direction, and any supplies on hand is considered a plus. This allows you to budget and build your emergency food stockpile without breaking the bank. Pick up a 3 day kit every two weeks, or one a month, for example, and soon enough you will have your stockpile built up.
It is recommended however, that you purchase some sample packs to make sure everyone in the family finds something they enjoy.
By combining all 4 kits you can easily fit 2 weeks of food in a space less than 2 feet high by 2 feet wide and 8 inches deep. If you live in a hurricane prone area, you are entering peak hurricane season and need to take action.
And our food supply entrees are excellent for daily use, as well as the perfect solution for any outdoor or camping activity. Whatever you choose, you will be serving a tasty, 100 percent vegetarian meal with high nutritional values and no hydrogenated oils, trans fats or added MSG. Priced at less than 58 cents per serving, our Food Supply Kit is a low-cost, nutritional alternative to other quick-prep, yet highly processed, meals.
We here believe that the recommendation of three days of essentials is outdated, in my opinion it needs to be raised to a more realistic level.
If you buy the combination of kits at one time you have a 14 day supply, it doesn’t get any easier than that. You can of course break down the contents to carry in packs for hiking, camping or to have in your vehicle’s emergency kit or in your bug-out-bags.
