Preparing an emergency food supply at home is one of the fundamental elements of home preparedness and will ensure continuity in the event of a disaster or unexpected emergency situation arising. Taking into account the complete nutrition requirements of you and your family, a fully stocked food storage pantry will last for years and will keep you fed in the face of adversity or in times of difficulty. This guide is here to help you get underway.
If you’re looking to be better prepared for an emergency at home, a core part of your response and continuity strategy will need to focus on nutrition and an uninterrupted access to food.
Alongside shelter, safety, and of course, access to clean drinking water, the ability to call upon an adequate emergency food supply during times of adversity is a cornerstone to any home preparedness planning.
While there are ultimately a whole load of ways to achieve the same outcome when it comes to planning your emergency nutrition ahead of time, if you’re planning to ride out a coming storm from the safety of your own home, then putting together some form of emergency food supply or food storage pantry will always be the end goal.
