This is a very difficult question to answer as there are so many different opinions. FEMA recommends that all Americans have a three day supply of food on hand at all times. The Mormon Church, whose followers have long been avid preparers say that their members should have a 2 year supply of food. So it seems like the answers are all over the board.
Here at Survivalkit.com we feel food is one of the cornerstones of survival, accompanied by air, water and shelter. When our many Facebook fans and customers pose this question to us we really advocate, “Just Get Started.”
Whether it’s a one day, two day, three day or a month supply, you need to get something and in the spirit of proactive preparedness you need to get it today. Procrastination of proper preparation is a killer long before any disaster strikes. We obviously advocate our world class survival kits, but let’s be honest, you can’t eat or drink a backpack 😉
Our friends over at Eat Tomorrow Foods have listened to us discuss with them the problems revolving customers budgets and the expense of long term food storage. They listened when we said, it’s great to talk to people with 1,2, and even 3 years of food storage but it’s horrible talking to someone with none. And they agree and understand that it is about helping you get started and get something rather than having nothing at all.
Having the proper food in the face of a disaster can be literally life changing. We’ve all seen and heard the stories of Middle Class Americans, “Dumpster Diving” after Hurricane Sandy just to try to put food on the table for themselves and their family. Our fellow Americans were left to fend for themselves amid an absolute disaster.
Eat Tomorrow has put together four very nice and inexpensive Emergency Food Supply Packages to help get the ball rolling and make sure you can provide when the time comes.
To answer the original question of, “How much food storage is enough?” is really impossible without knowing intimate details of your situation. But on the other hand, getting started with a one day to one month emergency food supply just got a lot easier.
Get started today, don’t procrastinate something that you are guaranteed to need. We really like Eat Tomorrow Foods motto…
Prepare Today And Eat Tomorrow.
