Why should I store food ?

“We have all seen the recent shows on TV that showcase families and individuals storing years and years worth of food in case there is some kind of global catastrophe. More and more families and individuals are becoming better prepared all the time and we believe you should as well. The world is an uncertain place and as we watch the news and see the instability around the globe, it’s easy to become concerned. For most people, however, this is not the reason why you should store food.

Depending on what part of the country you live in, the reasons are simple. If you live along the Southeast coast of the United States, hurricanes are a real threat. As we have seen in the recent past, a strong hurricane can knock out power for weeks or more. A supply of food, and especially water, is extremely important. Food within the refrigerator will spoil long before the power comes on after a strong storm. In an area like the West Coast, earthquakes can be a problem. Not only could you be left without power, you might also be trapped by roads that have either caved in or are covered with debris. Having a store of food and water on hand at all times is really a necessity that most people don’t pay attention to. The U.S. government recommends that all individuals and families should have an emergency food reserve, 72 hour emergency kits, etc. Having a backup food reserve could end up being one of the most important purchases you make for you and your family. This purchase can bring you peace of mind that if ANYTHING were to happen, whether an act of God or an act of terrorism, your family will have the supplies it needs until help arrives.”
