For most of us, it is a relatively simple task to ensure we have the recommended 3 to 15 days of emergency food supplies on hand. But what about a more catastrophic event? What if two weeks’ worth of food isn’t enough? Lucky for us, there are manufacturers and retailers that cover this long-term survival food need.
Why would I buy pre-packed long-term survival food as opposed to stockpiling it myself?
Without electricity, the only foods that will keep long-term are dehydrated, freeze-dried and canned. It would be especially difficult to stockpile one year’s worth of canned food items for your entire family if you are short on space. These manufacturers not only carry the product, they pack it neatly into easy-to-store containers.
