How big of an emergency food supply you will need depends on a lot of factors. Are you just looking to be able to ride out the effects of a hurricane or other natural disaster? Or does your family’s emergency preparedness plan require survival food for three months, six months, a year or longer? These are the obvious questions you need to ask yourself if you are not only going to survive, but thrive, in a disaster situation. Also, how active will you be? If you are foraging, chopping wood, setting snares and actively patrolling all day, you need to ramp up the number of calories you take in from your current level. And if all you are doing is sitting in your favorite recliner and listening to emergency radio broadcasts, you can get by on fewer calories. Whatever you need, ordering your emergency food kits online as opposed to making your own over time has many benefits.
The great thing about emergency food kits is they are available in pre-measured and prepackaged units that can get a single person or an entire family through a short 72 hour storm-rideout, or a one year long stay in an underground bunker. And with freeze-dried preparation, many of these survival food packages can last for 10 to 25 years. While building your own emergency food stores by slowly accumulating foods and other products over time is financially less impactful immediately, what happens if you do not have the necessary food on hand when disaster strikes? A solar pulse, financial crash or political upheaval will not fortunately time itself to wait until you are appropriately prepared. That is the beauty of clicking your mouse button a few times, choosing the emergency food supply you will need for you and your family, and waiting for the package to arrive at your front door.
Another benefit to ordering survival food kits as opposed to making your own is that nothing is left out. This is especially beneficial for first time preppers. Preparing for a SHTF scenario for the first time can be overwhelming to say the least. Even lifelong preppers often find that amid the myriad of details one must consider when providing for the survival of an entire family, it is easy to miss something important. When you purchase emergency food services or kits from established companies with a history of reliable survival food production, packaging, shipping and customer service, you immediately benefit from that company’s years of experience in producing exactly what is needed for a survival situation. And this holds true whether you are simply packing a bug-out bag for one person or stocking a doomsday bunker for six family members.
And long gone are the days where a survivalist had to depend on chalky, processor-filled MREs and powders for his or her food supply. A ready-made survival food package for one adult for two months can be purchased for around $300 or less, and can include such tasty foods as macaroni and cheese, cheesy lasagna, tortilla soup, pasta alfredo and chili. As a benefit, the competition which has exploded between the companies which provide emergency food and other survival food products means that you can often get extra bonuses depending on the amount of survival food you order. Emergency medical first aid kits, survival backpacks, bonus cooking utensils and other items are often included when you make a significant purchase.
Think about it. The planning and preparation has been done for you. You log onto your computer or smartphone, select the survival food kits that best fit your situation, and pay for your purchase. Usually within a week your order arrives, and you are instantly prepared on the food side of the equation for any type of disaster scenario. We still highly recommend accentuating your emergency food supply kits with purchases you make at your local grocery store, and always remember, “2 is 1, and 1 is none.” Have redundant supplies, purchase more than you think you will need, and overestimate on the time that you will need to access your emergency food kits. With 10 to 25 year shelf life, prepackaged survival food kits will still be good years down the road if you escape your survival situation early, and you probably will not be able to enjoy luxuries like ordering more food via the Internet if disaster strikes and you have not planned properly.
