Food and WaterA survival food supply with drinking water are the most vital necessities in the event of an emergency. Try to imagine what it would be like to live for a week without food or water. Could a situation of that magnitude really take place? Well, what about the Northridge earthquake in 1994, or Hurricane Andrew, or September 11, 2001? All of these situations posed a serious threat to food and water supplies by severing normal supply lines.
You may ask, “where do I start?” Take an inventory of all food items you have on hand. With a marker, date your canned food such as fruits and vegetables, and pastas so that you can use the oldest ones first. This is the start to assembling a complete survival food storage program. Forecast the needs of your household based on what your family eats and begin adding them to your pantry.
