Emergency Food Storage Checklist
This is a detailed checklist of what you need in your emergency food storage. And having a deep and extensive food storage larder is the difference between making sure your family’s bellies are full, or watching them starve.
As a rule of thumb, you should have a minimum of a 12 months supply of food storage.
This is a good idea not just for emergency preparedness, but also for use in the event of a job loss or other personal economic calamity.
This emergency food storage checklist outlines the best of everything related to food storage.
Emergency Food Storage Checklist: Bulk Food Storage
When people think about emergency food storage, usually the first thing that comes to mind is bulk food storage. Big gray or white buckets each filled with many rations of food.
These bulk food storage products are the fastest and maybe the most economical way to build your emergency food storage. The packaging makes them easy to carry, transport, and store.
The following checklist outlines a few options to consider. If you don’t see what you’re looking for in the link, then feel free to browse around:
The Ferrari (720 servings): Wise Company 720 Serving Package (120-Pounds, 6-Buckets)
The Cadillac (360 servings): 360 Serving Supply – 4 Month Survival Emergency Food Supply
The Corolla (200 servings): Emergency Food Storage Food Supply – 200 Servings
Emergency Food Storage Checklist: Wheat Buckets and Wheat Grinders
No emergency food storage larder is complete without wheat buckets. And stored wheat buckets d0you no good without a wheat grinder. Wheat is the world’s basic staple food, and a few buckets of wheat can keep you alive and kicking for a long time.
Plus, home made bread made from freshly ground wheat is delicious (and healthy too). I know this because my wife grinds her own wheat and makes her own bread! (and, like I said, it’s delicious!)
Here are some options of wheat buckets and storage, and also the wheat grinders that you will need for preparation:
The Ferrari (individual): Harveston Farms Hard White Wheat 6 Gallon Bucket
The Ferrari 6-pack!: Harveston Farms Hard White Wheat 6 Gallon Food Bucket (6 Pack)
The Cadillac: Organic Hard Red Wheat Seed- 35 Lbs
Electric Wheat Grinder (This is what my wife uses – believe me, you need this!): Blendtec 52-601-FLP Kitchen Mill, White
Hand Powered Wheat Grinder (for when the power goes out): Victorio VKP1012 Hand Operated Grain Mill
