Jackie from www.deeprootsathome.com is a tremendous wealth of information for Christian families across the world. We would encourage you to stock your pantry with this list she gives below.
“Most of the foods you buy in the grocery are packaged with the idea of you using it within a relatively short period of time, like a couple of months.
What you really need to store are true staple foods. You can make a fairly nutritious diet out of grains, beans, and canned goods. Properly packaged for storage, these foods will keep for years, and still be as tasty and nutritious as they were the day you bought them.
Since there is no way of knowing for sure what type of disaster is likely to strike, base your purchases on the assumption that few foods will be available. That may require eating things that your family isn’t used to eating. Nevertheless, eating strange food is better than not eating anything at all.
It is important to note that all of these foods will have an increased lifespan when kept in a cool, dry space.
Before I begin, do NOT forget to make provision for water available without electricity!
