Using Food Storage Shelves And Racks

Maximize the vertical long term food storage space that you have available by setting up emergency food storage shelves or racks. Whether you are planning a home food storage system for your family, or a Christian ministry food distribution center like they have set up in Wilmington, Ohio, the need to use space optimally is still the same. Having the right system can cut down on wasted space and ensure that the food you have stored up is used up in the right chronological order. Different types of food have different storage needs, and a very different shelf life, so it is important to be versatile in your storage system.

Up until just recently the need to store food was not really taken seriously by most people because there has always been an available food supply. But a couple of hundred years ago when a harvest was poor, people would find it hard to survive through the following winter, and many would not survive. Often, this would happen after a good harvest the previous year, when there was plenty of surplus food which would just rot because there was no way to store it. But new and improved food storage technologies, shelves, supplies, and containers are very significant developments in the modern age.

A large food storage operation, set up by a commercial entity, a charitable organization or established by another type of humanitarian effort, and a community which wisely sets up an emergency food storage system as disaster insurance against the unforeseen, all need to split up their long term food storage shelves and containers among several areas in the city. Having one giant facility to store everything creates a higher risk of fire or other damage wiping everything out. It is much better to store large amounts of survival foods in different areas, and the long term food storage shelves, racks, and methods will ensure that space is used in the optimum way.

Easy home food storage systems make liberal use of shelves, and racks because these make sure that wall space is fully utilized. Many modern homes lack space, and it is imperative to use what space you do have in the best way possible. Some food such as grain lends itself perfectly to this type of storage, because it can be fitted into a container of any size, sealed with an airtight Gamma Lid, and then stored at any height and in virtually any climate conditions. It can not be emphasized enough that each container be an airtight container.

It is vitally important that you arrange your food storage shelves or racks in a manner that will allow you to keep track of which food you need to use next. There are two possible Achilles heels to most long term food storage systems. The first is that proper expiration dates are not placed on each individual packet or container of food, so you never know what needs to be eaten first. A good record keeping system, preferably on computer, will get you round this problem. The other weakness is that packets or containers of the same food item can be used in the wrong order. Be sure and store the food in the proper order on the food storage shelves and racks.
