Proper food, nutrition and water are your first line of defense for your health when disasters or, other emergencies strike! This includes the fact that they use non-genetically modified food (Non-GMO) an only the freshest and best ingredients. The CEO of Nuvona Preston Sallenback is also dedicated to providing the public with the highest quality product.
He states “When emergencies happen and stress is at an all time high, food will be one of the first things on your mind and one of the highest priorities, but where are you going to find it?
Are you going to be like the rest of the people in your area and rely on someone else like FEMA or some other governmental agency to come to your rescue?
Having just witnessed the chaos shortly after Hurricane Sandy leads us to believe we must be self-reliant and not dependent on anyone but ourselves, but that would take some planning ahead and did all the homework for you and found the best solution out there, Nuvona Premium Foods. When packing food into your 72 hour kit, remember to use shelf stable, non perishable foods that will last a while. I cannot stress enough about the importance of food and water in your Emergency Survival Station.
If you dont have time to put together your own emergency kit, you can purchase a preassembled kit at Shelf Reliance. It’s amazing how fast the weight in your pack can add up, especially when adding in water and food!
Another thing to consider it to save your gallon milk containers and simply fill them up with tap water. Do not use milk containers they break down and split, ergo water everywhere, before you know it. I know you wrote this quite a long time ago, but if you are still having trouble getting your supplies you could try trading for them. If an earthquake, hurricane, winter storm or other disaster ever strikes your community, you might not have access to food, water and electricity for days, or even weeks.
Stocking water reserves and learning how to purify contaminated water should be among your top priorities in preparing for an emergency. You can store your water in thoroughly washed plastic, glass, fiberglass or enamel-lined metal containers. Before storing your water, treat it with a preservative, such as chlorine bleach, to prevent the growth of microorganisms. Add four drops of bleach per quart of water (or two scant teaspoons per 10 gallons), and stir. If a disaster catches you without a stored supply of clean water, you can use water in your hot-water tank, in your plumbing and in ice cubes. While the three methods described above will remove only microbes from water, the following two purification methods will remove other contaminants. Distillation involves boiling water and then collecting the vapor that condenses back to water. If activity is reduced, healthy people can survive on half their usual food intake for an extended period and without any food for many days.
If your water supply is limited, try to avoid foods that are high in fat and protein, and don’t stock salty foods, since they will make you thirsty.
You don’t need to go out and buy unfamiliar foods to prepare an emergency food supply. Empty opened packages of sugar, dried fruits and nuts into screw-top jars or air-tight cans to protect them from pests. Even though it is unlikely that an emergency would cut off your food supply for two weeks, you should prepare a supply that will last that long. Keep canned foods in a dry place where the temperature is fairly cool–not above 70 degrees Fahrenheit and not below freezing. For emergency cooking you can use a fireplace, or a charcoal grill or camp stove outdoors only. In the unlikely event of a military attack or some other national disaster, you may need long-term emergency food supplies. Bulk quantities of wheat, corn, beans and salt are inexpensive and have nearly unlimited shelf life. If these staples comprise your entire menu, you must eat all of them together to stay healthy. Include vitamin, mineral and protein supplements in your stockpile to assure adequate nutrition. The above staples offer a limited menu, but you can supplement them with commercially packed air-dried or freeze-dried foods and supermarket goods. Emergency Drinking Water Germicidal Tablets and Neutralize are intended for emergency disinfecion of drinking water. Gourmet long-term food supply options for families and individuals with up to 25 year shelf lives. Preparing adequately for these three basic items will make surviving for you and your family much easier.
Here’s 10 inspirational prepper shelfies that would make you think twice on building your own prepper food pantry.


Value – You should select a food that has the highest nutritional value, longest shelf life, best taste for the lowest price.
The purpose for this station is to have the means to survive an emergency for at least 72 hours, all in one place. If the public water system becomes contaminated for any amount of time & you don’t have an emergency supply of water, you will need to know how to effectively treat water in order to remove pathogens for safe drinking. If you have forgotten about the events (after Hurricane Katrina) made landfall in 2005, let me remind you.
When they say stock regular bleach, they mean absolutely plain bleach, without additives or scents.
Water is used for so MANY reasons besides drinking, including cooking, washing hands, brushing teeth, even bathing in an emergency.
Being able to add to your water supply at the last moment as the article states is a wise idea but remember that you can really ONLY count what you have physically stored.
Boiling is the best way to purify water but may be difficult to accomplish due to power or natural gas outages.
You’d be surprised how much stuff weighs when placed together, especially when cans and consumer wrapping are included.
Maybe you could put up a notice on a bulletin board in a local store to advertise your services. By taking a little time now to store emergency food and water supplies, you can provide for your entire family. Never use a container that has held toxic substances, because tiny amounts may remain in the container’s pores. As a last resort, you can use water in the reservoir tank of your toilet (not the bowl), but purify it first (described later).Water beds hold up to 400 gallons, but some water beds contain toxic chemicals that are not fully removed by many purifiers. But purify the water before drinking it.Rainwater Streams, rivers and other moving bodies of water Ponds and lakes Natural springs Avoid water with floating material, an odor or dark color. These measures will kill microbes but will not remove other contaminants such as heavy metals, salts, most other chemicals and radioactive fallout.
Bring water to a rolling boil for 10 minutes, keeping in mind that some water will evaporate.
Distillation will remove microbes, heavy metals, salts, most other chemicals, and radioactive dust and dirt, called radioactive fallout. Try to eat salt-free crackers, whole grain cereals and canned foods with high liquid content. A two-week supply can relieve a great deal of inconvenience and uncertainty until services are restored.
Try to include foods that they will enjoy and that are also high in calories and nutrition. To protect boxed foods from pests and extend their shelf life, store the boxes in tightly closed cans or metal containers.
Inspect your reserves periodically to make sure there are no broken seals or dented containers. The best approach is to store large amounts of staples along with a variety of canned and dried foods. To avoid serious digestive problems, you’ll need to grind the corn and wheat into flour and cook them, as well as boil the beans, before eating. In a well-filled, well-insulated freezer, foods will usually still have ice crystals in their centers (meaning foods are safe to eat) for at least three days.
Food is vital in survival because without food, you’ll become weak, susceptible to illnesses and diseases, and you’ll not be able to perform any survival-related tasks.

There are a few ways to treat it, but the two easiest purification methods are by boiling or chlorination. By adding ascorbic acid (lemonade or kool-aid) to the treated water, it will convert the chlorine into tasteless chlorine. And realize that bleach does begin to lose it’s effectiveness after 6 months even if unopened so be sure to rotate periodically.
I also gallon size bottle water (Ozarka) makes this round containers that fit into one another, that allows you to stack, without them readily falling.
The 8.25% solution is being produced by both brand name companies as well as companies that produce generic products. Everyone’s needs will differ, depending upon age, physical condition, activity, diet and climate. You can minimize the amount of water your body needs by reducing activity and staying cool.
If you designate a water bed in your home as an emergency resource, drain it yearly and refill it with fresh water containing two ounces of bleach per 120 gallons. If the water does not taste and smell of chlorine at that point, add another dose and let stand another 15 minutes. Cover soil with a towel, place the filter over a large container, and pour contaminated water through.


There’s no time to gather food from the kitchen, fill bottles with water, grab a first-aid kit from the closet and snatch a flashlight and a portable radio from the bedroom. The easiest way to develop a two-week stockpile is to increase the amount of basic foods you normally keep on your shelves. Many health food stores sell hand-cranked grain mills or can tell you where you can get one. Having an emergency survival food kit and supplying bulk of food in your pantry is a great investment not only for survivalists but also to non-preppers because it provides practicality, security, and peace of mind in case an emergency occurs.
FEMA suggests storing at least a 2 week supply. The more water you stockpile, the better off you are. They fit on a keyring or lanyard and if you have a Swiss-type multipurpose knife, they usually come with a can opener as one of the blades.
We already are in process of stock piling our pantry (dp closet) for supplies, but we are still in the early stages as this can get costly even when purchasing wisely. Another is refilling detergent bottles with bottles for cleaning up, since obviously you won’t drink that. I use these when camping in the desert for extended periods so I don’t have to use my drinking water for anything.
To use the water in your pipes, let air into the plumbing by turning on the highest faucet in your house and draining the water from the lowest one.To use the water in your hot-water tank, be sure the electricity or gas is off, and open the drain at the bottom of the tank. Three Easy Ways to Purify Water In addition to having a bad odor and taste, contaminated water can contain microorganisms that cause diseases such as dysentery, cholera, typhoid and hepatitis. Before purifying, let any suspended particles settle to the bottom, or strain them through layers of paper towel or clean cloth.
Boiled water will taste better if you put oxygen back into it by pouring it back and forth between two containers. Tie a cup to the handle on the pot’s lid so that the cup will hang right-side-up when the lid is upside-down (make sure the cup is not dangling into the water) and boil the water for 20 minutes.
Remember to compensate for the amount you eat from other sources (such as restaurants) during an average two-week period.
Individuals with special diets and allergies will need particular attention, as will babies, toddlers and the elderly. Use foods before they go bad, and replace them with fresh supplies, dated with ink or marker. Following is an easy approach to long-term food storage: buy a supply of the bulk staples listed above. We are still following your 8 week emergency plan (with minor adjustments as we deem neccessary). Start the water flowing by turning off the water intake valve and turning on a hot-water faucet.
You should therefore purify all water of uncertain purity before using it for drinking, food preparation or hygiene. If you are caught without a mill, you can grind your grain by filling a large can with whole grain one inch deep, holding the can on the ground between your feet and pounding the grain with a pipe.
Build up your everyday stock of canned goods until you have a two-week to one-month surplus. So you need to know how much to store and how to purify it if you run out of “clean” water.
If you ever need to use your pack to hike out with, the weight is going to count on everything!
We had not started preparing very much for situations where we were outside of the home and must get back.
Rotate it periodically to maintain a supply of common foods that will not require special preparation, water or cooking. You also need to store at least 3 days worth of “easy to prepare” food (with a long shelf life). Especially with kids and people whom are not used to hiking or whom are not physically fit.
We decided to use these Emergency Back Packs as our GHB (get home bags) and be in the corresponding vehicle that our family members are most likely to be in while away.
From a sporting or camping equipment store, buy commercially packaged, freeze-dried or air-dried foods. If we are already home, then we can grab them from the vehicles and they can be our BOB (bug out bags). There are many websites that teach about using coupons, and list deals that are at your store using coupons. I realize this is only week 2 so I do not want to get ahead of the plan so that’s all I will say for now. If the Electricity Goes Off… FIRST, use perishable food and foods from the refrigerator.
