WHY AN EMERGENCY FOOD SUPPLY AND WHY NOW?

The world has never been so unpredictable. The rise of natural disasters, war, and economic instability have led to a need for emergency food kits. Emergency food kits are becoming more popular as the world becomes more unstable. One thing we all learned from the latest pandemic is that no one is immune to empty store shelves. Having a supply of survival food on hand is an insurance plan against your family going hungry.

BE READY FOR AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE WITH LONG TERM FOOD STORAGE.

It is important to be prepping for the future. You never know what might happen and it is always better to have the emergency food supplies ready before you need them. Once disaster happens, it’s too late to put together enough long term food storage to keep your family fed. The CDC recommends having at least 3 days of food storage, but we all know that in the event of a real disaster, food supplies could be disrupted for weeks or months or even longer, so know what to stock up on. Having survival food on hand ensures that you’re not at the mercy of a fickle government agency or handouts from your neighbors.

WHAT'S THE BEST EMERGENCY FOOD SUPPLY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY?



WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT BUYING EMERGENCY MEAL KITS?

The key to long-term food storage is not just about storing up a lot of food. It’s about storing the right food in the right way. Ask yourself this: when you go to the grocery store, does it bother you to buy food that is packed with artificial ingredients, chemicals, and just plain junk? If so, pay close attention to the nutrition labels on the survival food you buy. The long term food storage industry is full of producers who pack their foods with cheap junk and empty calories to decrease their costs. You will never find that at Valley Food Storage. We produce a clean, simple emergency food supply that has the same ingredients you’d use in your own cooking.

HIGH-QUALITY CALORIES

Empty calories leave with feeling sluggish. We provide high-quality calories to keep you sharp.

HOW TO STORE & ORGANIZE EMERGENCY FOOD SUPPLIES.

Emergency food supplies are only as useful as they are safe and accessible. Having a stack of survival food kits that have spoiled from poor storage or contain foods your family won’t eat isn’t much of a help. You’ll want to occasionally cook foods from your long term food storage to make sure it’s enjoyable and you don’t struggle to prepare it for the first time when you’re under a stressful emergency. One of the reasons we offer a 72 hour emergency food kit is to give you a selection of foods for a low price that you can try out before you have to rely on them. Then make sure to keep your survival food in a dry cool place. Often a shelf in the basement or a closet in the interior of your home make good, temperature stable survival food storage locations.

SURVIVAL FOOD FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



WHAT ARE THE BEST SURVIVAL FOODS?

The best survival foods provide clean, sustainable nutrition that will keep you performing well in an emergency situation. They also need to be shelf stable and easy to prepare. That’s why we make all our survival food kits with simple ingredients that you’re likely already using in your home cooking, we just dehydrate them and make them shelf stable. That way you have long term food storage that won’t mess with your digestive system, but is always ready for any emergency.

WHO HAS THE CHEAPEST SURVIVAL FOOD?

The cheapest survival food is probably bags of rice and beans. They’re already pretty storage stable, and if you package them in nitrogen gas inside of mylar bags packed in buckets, they’ll last even longer. But how happy will your family be living on meals of plain rice with plain beans for months? Both rice and beans also require hours of boiling, which may not be possible in an emergency situation. For that reason, they shouldn’t make up the entirety of your emergency food supply.

There are also other companies that make cheaper survival food than Valley Food Storage. Our goal wasn’t a race to the bottom to produce the cheapest calories we could pass off as emergency food. Before you buy from any other company, compare their nutrition labels to Valley Food Storage nutrition labels. You’ll recognize all the ingredients in our food. But that’s not the case for most other emergency food kit providers. In an emergency don’t count on chemicals and fillers for your family’s survival.

WHO HAS THE BEST TASTING SURVIVAL FOOD?

Obviously, we’re biased. Each menu item at Valley Food Storage has been carefully selected and configured to provide nutrition and great taste using simple ingredients. Once you taste the freeze dried fruits, you’ll have a hard time keeping your family out of them. They’re delicious just as is. And we make a mango habanero chili that you’d be happy to serve to guests even before anything hits any fans. Don’t add terrible food to the list of hardships you’ll be surviving in an emergency situation. Make sure your survival food is a source of comfort.

WHAT FOOD IS GOOD FOR AN EMERGENCY KIT?

We always recommend keeping shelf stable staples on hand. Make sure you have some extra rice and canned tuna. The protein bars you can buy at the grocery store are also great. Just make sure to buy things that you already eat so that you can keep cycling through them and they don’t go bad. Then if the power goes out for a day or there’s a snowstorm, you have easy access to food supplies.

However, when we talk about an emergency food kit we’re not talking about food for a day. We’re talking about food for 2 months when things have really gotten rough. In that case, you’re going to want a supply of freeze dried fruits and vegetables for their nutrients, freeze dried meat for protein, and packaged survival food that you know will still be safe to eat even though you bought it 7 years ago.
