These pictures are from my food storage.
Emergencies often arise out of the blue and most of the times these unexpected events can drain an individual's finances and suppress a family to seek help. As Latter Day Saints we are often reminded to keep 3, 6 months to a year supply of food, cash, medicine & water. As a member of the church, I have followed this important request and it has helped me to overcome many financial difficulties in my life...especially now after retirement. I try to keep my food storage filled at all times and with it I could sustain myself for at least 6 months. The only thing I need to replenish every month is paper products and fresh fruit & vegatables and fresh non dairy milk. I also keep a well supplied spice closet with an assortment of vinegrettes & oils.
These are the Basic's for a Family Food Storage
1. Three to 6 months supply Food:
Build a small supply of food that is part of your normal daily diet. One way to do this is to purchase a few extra items each week to build a one week supply of food. Then you can gradually increase your supply until it is sufficient for 3 months. These items should be rotated regulary to avoid spoilage.
