Food Preparedness for Disasters

Published: Tue Dec 06 2005

With all of the recent disasters we have experienced you may becoming interested in emergency preparedness. Based on recent examples of poor disaster relief from government agencies, it is making more sense to take some direct action to support your family in the event of an emergency.

The most important necessity by far that you will need to provide for is food. With threats like Avian Flu pandemic (bird flu) looming there may be disruptions to the food supply for weeks. The recommended 72 hours food supply will just not be enough to ensure you and your family will not face hardships.

The best answer to your emergency meal ration needs is freeze dried food. With shelf life of up to 30 years you can stock up and be sure you will have quality food available years down the road. Freeze dried food means you will not need to throw out inferior food supplies every year that go bad.

You can purchase freeze dried food online but you need to ensure you buy quality product from reputable sources. To ensure you are getting the best value look for online merchants that have been in business for several years and are stocking distributors. Some online sites selling emergency rations are just re-sellers that may be a high risk to your investment in an emergency food supply. (More information can be found at

You can purchase a wide variety of food reserve paks that can feed a family of 4 from 3 days to 4 months. The FDA recommended daily calorie intake is 2500-3000 for adult males and 2200 calories per day for adult females. Some low priced "discount offers" online far less calories in a "meal" so you need to be careful and know exactly what you are getting when you buy freeze dried meals.
