We talk about the many reasons to have a stockpile:
Emergency Prep: Having at least 72 hours of food (that you don’t have to cook) and water on hand per FEMA recommendations.
Family Security: Taking the ease of mind off if you have a severe family illness or job loss — you can at least eat.
Good Stewardship: You are able to help someone else out at a moment’s notice – just grabbing a bag and going. This is for family emergencies, when someone has a baby or even for a funeral as well as being able to donate to your local food pantry or personal care pantry, which all need a lot of help.
The one thing that is hard to know, if you didn’t use it before the expiration date, Is It Still Good?
