Raw rice can last 30 years. Certain types of candy can last up to a year. Hurricane lamps, along with lamp oil and wicks, as well as candles, can keep darkness at bay when there is no electricity. There are two ways to build your emergency food pantry.
One way is to store more of the non-perishable foods you already eat in daily life. This list covers that type of food, the things you can find in any supermarket that is great for your reservations. Stored caravans, trailers and boats can provide storage space. We store our additional propane tanks inside a tent trailer away from the house.
Canned foods are probably the best place to start. They can endure an earthquake or even submerge themselves in hurricane water and still be good to eat. If advanced creativity is required, you might consider burying an old freezer or an airtight barrel to store your valuable supplies. The beginner's prep guide explains the pros and cons of each method, as well as basics such as how much food you should store for your family.
A short-term supply of non-perishable food can be stored under a bed in rolling bags designed for storage. Keep an essential list of the non-perishable foods needed to store in your apocalyptic pantry handy.
