Top 3 Reasons You NEED Long Term Food Storage

Do you have long term food storage?

With the ever-changing landscape of the world, you should always be prepared.

You never want to expect the worst - but you should always be ready for it.

Some people may think that prepping is “overkill” but, it’s only overkill until you need it.

For a small price, we can all have the “peace of mind” that no matter what - you and your family will survive anything that comes your way.

So with that in mind, today, we’re going through the top 3 reasons you should invest in long term food prepping and some of the ways we make it as easy as possible for you.

Long Term Food Storage Reason #1: Unemployment

  • 30% - Percent of Americans that are self-employed or employed by a company with less than 20 people
  • 35% - The percent of the workforce that is comprised of millennials
  • 1:2 - The chances that a dual-income household will experience a loss of a paycheck due to unemployment during their lifetime

Take a look at those stats one more time.

Even if you have a job, there’s nothing stopping you from losing it.

In 2020, we all saw how vastly the job market can change in a blink of an eye.

With that in mind, around 30% of your income goes towards food. Long term food storage can help you to not worry about any of those costs.

Think of it like food insurance. Invest in it while you are making money so that when you aren't - you're covered.

A lot of companies - including Valley Food Storage - offer long term food buckets that give you everything you will need for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The best part of all? The food is stored in a water-resistant bucket for safe storage and easy transportation and can last up to 25 years.

Long Term Food Storage Reason #2: Financial Emergency

  • 1:4 The chance your household visited an Emergency Room last year
  • 11.8 The average age of a car on the road in the US today
  • 4% the increase each year of the average age of a car on the road in the US

Along the same lines as the first point, financial emergencies can happen when you least expect it to.

For example, I personally had a brain hemorrhage one day while I was at work. I was in the ICU at my hospital for 3 days and was unable to work for almost 2 months.

Was I ready for this? Hell no. Guess what happened?

Everything was a struggle.

Away from the personal struggle of recovering, I had no idea how I was going to pay the bills or how I was going to eat.

Now, you might be lucky - this may never happen to you.

But, your car could die, your house could be damaged from a natural disaster - anything could happen.

That’s why I have long term food storage set up in my basement along with a slew of different items to be 100% ready for anything.

Long Term Food Storage Reason #3: Natural Disaster

Take a look at these quick stats:

  • 1,200 - The number of tornados that touched down on US soil in 2018
  • 23% - Percentage of the US population that could be affected by a hurricane in 2019
  • 70,000 - The number of wildfires in the US in 2017
  • 10,000,000 - How many acres were consumed by wildfires in the US in 2017
  • $8,000,000,000 - Losses due to flood damage in 2018

While beautiful, nature is indifferent to all of us. This can be a scary thought. You have no way of stopping nature. But, you can prepare for it.

With this in mind, having an area set aside in your basement with long term food storage, water, flashlights and a first aid kit.
