Storing up on supplies in case of an emergency is the essence of every prepper. “Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.” This popular quote echoes what survivalists take to heart. One of the most stocked, and most important items to have is food.
There are different types of food that store longer and better, different storage systems to help lengthen that time, and different methods of preparing food to keep longer (for example, salting food is one of the oldest methods of preserving it).
Having long-term food stored away can give you immense peace of mind. Having portable long-term food stored makes it that much easier to re-locate your caché whenever the need arises.
A good place to start looking for freeze dried foods is ReadyStore.com. They have a wealth of food storage items, military MREs, water storage, emergency supplies, and DIY lists.
They have freeze dried food, dehydrated food, and supply sizes packages such as 1 year, 1-6 months, and 3-21 days.
