Where to Buy Food Units
We have already talked about what to look for in survival food packages here, so on this page we’ll focus on where to GET the food units, and what type of foods you will want to get.
What type of emergency or survival foods you want to stockpile depends a lot on what kind of preparedness plan you have in mind.
If you have a rural retreat somewhere and are stocking it with not only food and water, but also have an alternative source of energy available there, you will be able to get pretty creative with your food storage supply.
However, if you are only thinking basic urban survival, and simply want to have something on hand to get you through a few days or weeks while you decide what your next plan of action is then you are more limited to what you may want to store up for yourself.
Especially if you do not have a back-up energy plan in mind.
Without the means to cook your food and the possibility of having to use your water sparingly, this will make a huge difference in what you will able to do with food preparation.
We highly recommend storing more than just survival food packages. Essentials such as first aid kits, safe drinking water, etc, are just as, if not more important
than food as you can go a long time without food, if you have to, but
without proper medical assistance or water, a person can die quickly in
At the time of this writing (04/2012) there is a longer waiting period on most food storage units because of the hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis that are happening worldwide.
The wait on food units could get significantly longer if there are any major disasters in the US within the next few months.
When the swine flu threat happened, many of our online suppliers of food units, especially the freeze dried foods, went to back-order status within a few days.
Imagine having to wait for several weeks on food with an impending food crisis on the horizon. …(and then not knowing if you would get it in time)
I like the thought of having enough food on hand to feed my family for at least a few weeks, without having to leave the house!
