Food Storage Tuesday

Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your 72-hour kit, your 3-month supply, and your longer-term storage. If you are new to our blog, don't worry! You won't be left behind. Just start up where we are and follow along. You will eventually have everything completed! Once the 72-hour kit is complete, we'll be putting together emergency car kits again (week by week). Once those are done, we'll gather the 72-hour kits again. So don't worry, just jump on in and join us where we are today!

We are still gathering food this week for our 72-hour kits.  Be sure to check out some of our previous articles about food for 72-hour kits here.  Also, the Ensign magazine published an article last year about adequate nutrition during an emergency.  We did a review of that article here.  Also, see  our 72-hour kit page for more ideas.

How's your three-month supply going?  Don't be discouraged if you don't have much extra money in your budget to buy food storage.  Just getting a few extra things a week can really make a difference, and blessings will come if you are trying!!  The Lord knows your heart; if you are doing your best with food storage, that is all you can do.

We are still gathering wheat this month for our longer-term storage.  Tomorrow I'll post an article about some wheat facts... I know, don't fall off your chair with excitement!!! :)

I am looking forward to your wheat post. In the spring we were given wheat, the age was unknown.

I was concerned that it was too old. I have made bread with it and it seems to be fine. It is red wheat so a stronger taste than white but a good flavor.

I would love any info on the storage life of wheat. This could be 30+ years or maybe only 10 I have no way of knowing??? It was stored in barrels.

Thanks for offering advice on proper food storage. By mastering proper storage techniques on 72 hour storage, one may be able to adapt when storing for up to 3 months. Good post.
