We talked about the importance of having Emergency Food Supplies on hand for emergencies, manmade or natural, but just talking won’t get you prepared. In case the emergency arises now, are you prepared with a food supply that will last you and your loved ones for a week? Two weeks? A month? Six months? A year?
For most of us, trying to have a year’s food supply on hand immediately is virtually impossible. I know this because we weren’t financially able to put away a year’s supply; it is cost prohibitive, as it would be for most Americans. But we started small: Starting at the grocery store, we added a few extra cans of vegetables and fruit until we felt we had enough for 2 weeks – Then we started planning for a month. At the same time, we were raising our fruits and vegetables in our garden and as they ripened, we canned the bulk of them to expand our emergency food supply. This has been going on for a couple of years so we’re well on our way to our goals, but we cannot raise everything we need because we don’t have a lot of land so we have also been buying freeze-dried foods from Wise Foods® and Mountain House®.
Now would be a good time to start your emergency food supply because we have reduced all of the Wise Foods® prices we carry by almost 30%! Hopefully, this will help you accumulate the emergency food supplies you will need.
