This section offers my thoughts about determining how much emergency food you would want to order from Wise Food Storage. Everyone has a different situation because of the family members and threats in the area.
Careful calculation of your needs will ensure that you have enough food should the need arise. Buying more food than you need with a “just in case” mindset can put a strain on your monthly budget. Instead, why not calculate how much you need and choose to purchase long-term foods that will last up to 25 years?
In the wake of natural disasters, the entire area surrounding your home might be devastated. Your plans to shelter in place would be supported with enough food and fresh water for a few days. With the right supplies, you won’t even need to make your way to a store before the danger has passed.
Any emergency, including extended power outages can be addressed when you take emergency preparedness seriously.
Damage to your traditional food supply can be addressed when you have ready-made, long-term food items from Wise Foods stored away safely.
With a shelf-life of 25 years, these products can be stored in a cool place without the need to rotate your emergency food supply. Careful packaging ensures that the contents are protected from air and moisture. Traditional “non-perishable” foods will not be purchased and rotated in preparation for a disaster.
Having More Food Than You Need Is Preferable To Running Out!
You might wonder how much food you would want to have on hand to feed your entire family for 3-10 days. Emergency food supplies can be calculated when you visit the Wise Food Storage website through the link at the end of this section.
Use the food-storage calculator on the website to determine the right quantity of survival foods you want to have on hand. Your health can be sustained when you eat regularly from the healthy foods in your emergency supply kit.
Everyone over the age of 10 is considered an adult when calculating the quantity of emergency food you will want to have available. The food-storage calculator allows you to decide whether each person will eat twice or three times each day.
The final recommendation will be based on what you consider appropriate for your family. In your emergency preparedness plan, you will want to include supplies for every family member, including your pets.
Your purchase from Wise Food Storage will be delivered to your home in easy-to-store containers that protect the food inside from light, air and moisture. These containers will be ready for use whenever you need an emergency food supply.
