Long Term Food Storage For Hard Times

If you are planning for long term food storage you would be making a good decision that could make life a bit easier in the future. Your food storage could come to your rescue in the event of an emergency or if economic trouble makes it difficult to buy food. The cost of food could go way up but your stored food supply could help offset that. If you lose your job, as is happening more frequently now you would still be able to eat until you had another income source.

What constitutes long term food storage? Generally you think of one year or more of food stored in protective containers or food on a shelf that you can rotate out with you daily meals as long term. This second method can be the more preferable way to go because you would be using items that you know your family likes, so there are no surprises. With prepackaged deals where you buy one year worth in a bulk purchase you may get some stuff you don’t want.

Buying your food locally can be the best way to go. For one you are supporting your local economy, you can buy a little extra each week to add to your storage food and you can constantly rotate it with new items to make sure the expiration date is good. To avoid having to have more water during an emergency, avoid getting a lot of powdered type food that requires constitution. If you have a reliable source of water this may not be a problem.

Getting food for storage does not have to be expensive. Buy it along with your regular trips to the store and put it on the shelf. When you have a years worth of food you would be in an enviable position because you will only be relying on yourself to get by.
