Prepper Pantry

What is in your Prepper Pantry? Right now, honest assessment. How many days could your family survive on what's in your house right now? Most American households have less than seven days of food on hand. Did you know that most grocery stores, utilizing "just in time inventories", would sell out of food in three days if not restocked?

Building an emergency pantry is one of those lifelines that takes both time and planning to make it fully functional. Ideally, you want to store shelf stable foods that your family normally consumes, as well as find foods that serve multiple purposes. Stocking your Prepper Pantry should involve a combination of ready to eat food and beverages to last your family many months plus long term food storage for a year or more.

Overall, your Prepper Pantry should reflect an abundance of the foods that you eat on a regular basis. Utilize a last in, first out rotation. This is a mistake many new Preppers make. They buy food that they don't eat on a regular basis. Store foods that have a long shelf life, that don't require refrigeration after opening and that are easy to cook off the grid.
