Setting Up A Long Term Food Storage System

Create your own banner at mybannermaker.com!

It is urgent that every family sets up a long term food storage system using freeze-dried food because of rising food prices and the threat of worldwide economic collapse. It is only relatively recently in the history of mankind that we have had the ability to store food to safeguard against famine and social disaster. This is one of the most important developments of the industrial age, as there is now no need for anyone in an industrialized nation to go hungry. Many individuals are also taking control of their own food supplies, storing food to guard against major emergencies. Families are also able to use food storage to save money.

Families who have relied on short term food supplies in conjunction with the regular cycle of farming need to change their habits and start a long term food storage system. Although intensive farming is putting pressure on resources and on soil quality, the developed world still has more than enough food to satisfy its needs. Storing food can help to keep food prices more stable, as well as making sure that a famine situation cannot occur. Thought also needs to be given to the distribution systems as these could be shut down by a cyber attack or disruption in fuel supplies since these systems are computerized and dependent on fuel for transportation, and any disruption can be mitigated by families having food in storage.

It is important that individuals and families "buy" a "food insurance policy" by discreetly stockpiling food now in their home or in a small storage building on their property and next to their home. While it is possible for one isolated residence to store food so that the occupants are able to eat in the event of a crisis, if this residence is the only one doing this, it is not likely to help much unless they do it secretly. The occupants who do not store food secretly will be just as vulnerable to crime as they would have been to famine, if everyone around them is going hungry. But for the good of the whole community, food storage of this type works best when it is carried out by the whole community and the prices for everyone can be kept down by purchasing in bulk quantities.

Your storage system can be set up with a component of short and medium term storage also just to keep you from running out of food for any normal reason. To set this up: make a list of everything that your family eats on a regular basis. Some of the items on this list, such as fruit and vegetables, are much better eaten when they are fresh. It is possible, though, to buy canned versions of these and only use them when you cannot get to the store or supermarket to bring in fresh supplies.

The greater part of your food storage system should be set up to give you food insurance security for the long term. Storage of grains and edible seeds in large plastic containers sealed with Gamma Lids can give you months of supply without requiring you to visit a store. You can also save money by buying at a time when an item is on sale, and then waiting until it is on sale again before topping up your containers. All the things discussed on this page can make your long term food storage system more effective as an insurance policy for your survival.
