Click now to get PREPARED!

When disaster strikes and you are forced to think about survival, there are three basic fundamentals you must have to live. The two most important survival elements are food and water. The third is shelter and is also very important depending on your environment. In this article we will be primarily discussing survival food and its importance to your food storage plan. We will cover the basics and will also provide links to other sites for in depth research. Survival food can come in a variety of different solutions but usually in a form called MRE (Meals Ready to Eat). These packets are made to meet all of the daily vital nutrient needs and can be eaten on the spot without flame or preparation. MREs are waterproof and are made to endure the roughest environments. In fact they where originally designed for our troops on the front lines of WWII and since have been the staple meal for many military men since. Presently they are used by hunters, campers and in survival and disaster kits worldwide. USA Food Storage sells a variety of MREs and 72-hour emergency food kits. MRE packages are typically a little bland tasting. This is why we offers an assortment of alternative solutions. One alternative is using freezes dried fruits and vegetables. However, to be considered an alternative they must be packaged in food storage grade pouches meant to be highly resistant to the elements. Freeze dried foods are chalk full of natural nutrient and minerals and ours are always organic. For more information please see our learning center or store on freeze dried fruits and vegetables. Emergency survival food is a different kind of food than your long-term food storage. For one, it is engineered to be light and portable. Second it can be opened and eaten without preparation. Lastly long-term food storage is typically meant to be a substitute for daily food needs in case of long-term food shortages. Survival foods are designed to be taken with you in the event of evacuations and other local emergencies and last up to 72 hours. One should plan to have enough food to support every member of the household for at least 72-hours. This is usually enough time to evacuate and find another source of food. In case of emergency having a 72-hour food kit can mean the difference in survival. It is important that you store this food in a different place than your other food storage. It should be stored above ground level in case of floods or mud slides. It should be consolidated in a backpack, duffle bag or any other easy to carry case, in the event you have needed to make a quick exit. However, Be mindful that it is stored in an area that doesn´t get too cold or too hot and in an accessible place to be quickly grab and taken in case of a true emergency. The kitchens, coat closets and pantries are great places to store your survival food.
