Do you have enough food for an unexpected snowstorm? Are you ready for a natural catastrophe? If not, now is the time to start. FEMA recommends that you have at least 3 days’ worth of food and water stored. But that is not enough, because in a crisis it may take weeks to get the food back on the grocery store shelves and for power to be restored.
For less than $60, you can feed a family of two adults and two children for 30 days.
Sound impossible? It’s not! With just a few ingredients and two easy recipes, you and your family can survive a disaster.
7 Foods For Survival
Here’s what you’ll need to get:
- 10 lbs. of cornmeal
- 20 lbs. of white rice
- 16 lbs. of dried mixed beans
- 2 lbs. of granulated chicken flavored bouillon
- 1 gallon of pancake syrup (or honey)
- 1 lb. of salt
- 2 lbs. of vegetable oil
A few weeks ago I bought most of these items at Walmart and Sprouts, and it cost me less than $60 for everything. I found 20 pounds of white rice at Walmart for only $8, and Sprouts had a sale on dried, mixed beans for less than $1 per pound. And I also got a gallon of pancake syrup from Walmart for only $8 because it’s much cheaper than honey. But if you don’t mind spending more money, honey will be more nutritious and will usually last indefinitely.
