How to Prepare Food for an Emergency

Emergency food supplies and emergency food kits come in handy in case of a natural disaster or a war. If stores shut and you cannot fill up your supplies, you will be in big trouble if you did not store additional food stuffs at home. In most cases you should have at least one week's supply of products with a long shelf life. In case of chemical warfare or invasion, the natural order of things may be disturbed so it is best if you prepare for the worst.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Can openerPlastic bottles or containers

Instructions

1 Determine the best place for storage in your house for long-life foods. Generally dark, cool and dry places, such as the cellar or a dark storage room, keep food good longer. Remember: Your fridge may not function if the electricity is shut due to chemical warfare, invasion, natural disasters or other disruptions to electricity supplies.

2 Store canned foods that have a long shelf life. Check the expiration date of all products before you purchase them. Buy food that will stay in date for at least 12 months after purchase.

3 Purchase food that require little or no cooking and refrigeration. Utilities may be disrupted, so store products that are ready to eat such as conserves, crisps, canned fruit, canned pasta or macaroni. The best is to procure items that the military use such as meals-ready-to-eat that have a shelf life of over five years and require no cooking.

4 Get survival high-calorie and high-energy food bars. High-energy food bars last long and they contain essential vitamins and minerals.

5 Keep your food up to date by dating all products in your emergency storage place.

6 Store one gallon of water per person and pet in your household per day in case of an emergency. Store water in plastic containers or bottles.

Tips and warnings

According to the Center For Disease Control and Prevention, the best temperature for storage is between 40 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Keep an additional can opener near your canned products at all time.

Replace noncommercially bottled water every six months.

Do not store food near petrol or other chemicals.
