Carson City, NV – September 14, 2017 – In the wake of disaster, food shortage can be a huge concern. This is why it is strongly advised to prepare some emergency food ahead of time. To guide people with their food supply, an expert from Home and Garden America (HAGA) has revealed the top 2 ways to secure survival food for future disasters.
“Disasters are unavoidable but you can prepare for it by having a proper food supply along with your survival kit. Nutritious food will be scarce during and after a terrible disaster, so you want to make sure you have all the right resources to feed yourself and your loved ones,” said the HAGA expert.
His first tip is for families to store non-perishable food at all times. Foods with a very long shelf life are ideal to have in the pantry. Canned goods, dehydrated fruit slices, dried beans, grains, oats, pasta, raw honey, and white rice are some great examples.
“Plan ahead with your family on what to include in your survival food stock. Whether you go with freeze-dried, dehydrated or conventional canned foods, it is important to choose a variety of items that your family members will actually eat, otherwise all the money and effort will be useless. If you have beloved pets, don’t forget to consider their food as well. Have a good source of clean water too—you’ll need it for both drinking and cooking during a disaster situation,” the expert explained.
After deciding on which food items to store, a time frame must be settled. Most households fill their pantries with 3 months up to a year’s worth of food. Families are advised to pick a realistic time period and set a budget for it.
Aside from stocking up on non-perishable items, growing a vegetable garden with the use of survival seeds is another great way to ensure a steady supply of food.
“In my experience, one of the most efficient ways to secure survival food is to start a vegetable garden. A garden will provide unlimited and nutritious produce for the whole family without breaking the bank. My advice is to get a quality seeds pack that will last for decades so you can grow produce at any point in the future. Use some of the seeds to plant a veggie garden right now in order to save money and learn how to be more self-sufficient. Then store the rest of the seeds for future use in case you need to grow a new garden after a disaster,” the HAGA expert further remarked.
By following the useful tips above, any family can achieve a reliable food supply that will help them get through tough disasters.
