Survival Food - Freeze Dried & MRE provides news and information on food preparedness for survival in the event of a disaster where food is not readily available for more than 72 hours.
Some emergency situations such as epidemics may require 6 weeks to 3 months of reserve food supply for an individual or family.
The lesson of Hurricane Katrina is that you can not put your hope in the government to provide adequate support in a timely fashion. In extreme cases it is even unrealistic to expect any relief organization to be able to provide needed support to everyone within 24 hours.
Survival planning is an investment and the advice of storing a supply of dry grains and can goods and replenishing them every 2-3 years is a recipe for disaster for most us who do not have the time or diligence to manage the kind of inventory cycle process required properly.
Basically most people will forget to replace expired food. They will have rancid food with little or no nutritional value when they need it or even worse, nothing, because they did not remember to buy the replacement survival food when they threw the old food out.
Stored under right conditions MRE (meals ready to eat) like what the military uses can last 6-7 years or more.
Freeze dried food, which needs water to re-hydrate, can last up to 30 years. A six week or 3 month supply can easily be stored in homes in a relatively small space. A six week supply should be more than enough to cover all the likely scenarios you will need survival food. You may want 3 months for extra peace of mind or to help others who may be in dire need.
Although the up-front cost of a 6 week or 3 month survival food supply for you or your family may seem alot, it definitely will be a much better value in long term since you will not need to replace it every 2 years, or worse, you forget and have nothing when an emergency situation arises.
