Storage Food

This page is primarily designed for those "survivalists" who are planning a "retreat" which they are stocking. I would also maintain that a "working homestead," one already producing plenty of food for its occupants, should consider adding a "storage food package" to the pantry as insurance against a "bad year" - just in case. Plus, having the extra food on hand helps if other family members suddenly shows up due to a catastrophe in their area.

When designing a food-storage program, take into account the amount of calories provided by each food item and the amount of calories needed by your body. Homesteading is not a sedentary lifestyle.
