Those of you who plan to take the first steps toward preparing for emergencies may feel a bit overwhelmed at where to begin. Food storage calculators are a great tool to incorporate in your preparedness planning, and can help you understand how much food your family will need for a given emergency.
Caloric intake is an important factor in survival. In any disaster situation, you want to avoid malnutrition. Consider buying multifunctional food items. Items that can serve more than one purpose will help your finances, as well as save precious space in the food storage pantry.
Bring on the protein! Protein is an essential ingredient in our daily diets and cannot be omitted out of a survival diet.
Convenience helps in stressful situations. Many moms know that boxed dinners can be a lifesaver when you are in a time crunch. Find comfort in the little things. Have some comfort food items that provide enjoyment to the family. Rotate and resupply when needed. Any items bought for the food storage closet should be used, rotated and resupplied. Keeping the above considerations in mind when purchasing your food supply will provide your family with a well rounded food pantry stocked with an array of foods that will assist in promoting a healthy diet. My order was filled quickly, arrived in a timely manner, and it was very well organized and complete! First of all let me say that I am not a pepper but I am also not naive to the potential for problems in our world.
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. The food storage calculations can also be printed out and used as an inventory list to keep you on track in terms of what preparedness supplies you have and will need.
Items such as oats, pasta, rice, wheat and beans are some great low-cost foods will serve a variety of uses. Having some pre-packaged dinners and meals-to-grab during emergency scenarios will help you begin acclimating yourself to cooking in a grid down scenario as well as can help provide some comfort at the same time.
Items such as popcorn, sweet cereals, hard candy, juice boxes, pickles, applesauce, pudding, cookies could be a great way to provide a bit of normalcy to the emergency situation you may face.

They have the nutrition and calories of a full meal but have a long shelf life and take up little space.


Minnie's Food Pantry is a 501 C3 non-profit agency that collects and distributes nutritious, free food to families that can't afford to buy groceries. 55 percent of all childhood deaths worldwide are related to malnutrition.Collin County has over 43,000 people living below the poverty line. Many websites, including this one encourage families to start buying small amounts of food related preparedness items each time they go shopping.
Stock up on foods that provide you with essential nutrients to maintain body functions, proteins and carbohydrates, fats for energy, as well as foods that are not high in salt (the more salty your food is, the more water you will drink).
Meats such as tuna, ham, chicken and spam are great additions to the food pantry and are multifunctional. Personally speaking, my family has the “just add water” pancake mixes, corn breads and drink mixes that are a great convenience. A review of the different types of bars can be read here or you can practice your survival skills and make your own with this recipe. Do an inventory check every 6 months to make sure that canned goods, preserves and other storage items are within their expiration dates. Please consult with a qualified health care professional before acting on any information presented here. If you live in a hurricane prone area, you are entering peak hurricane season and need to take action. It would be prudent to have a 2-week supply of water on hand, as well as a water filtration device to rely on for extended disasters.
