The General Food Storage FYI

Food Storage FYI

Prepare a storage area for food. COOL, DRY, and DARK conditions are best. Include a permanent marker to date items as they are added to the shelf. Remember to rotate first in first out by putting the new items in the back of the older items already on the shelf.

CONTAINERS- Always store your bulk foods in food storage containers. Many people have had to throw away lots of food because it was left in sack, where the product can or was exposed to moisture, insects, and rodents.


NEVER put water or food containers directly on cement. Use carpet, wood, shelves, etc. Reason- is chemicals will leach into the containers from the cement.

Stock up on items when found to be on sale. Look for case lot sales: buy one get one free sales. Buy multiple items when in season to carry through for a year.

Try to put your food and water storage in several different locations in your home.

USE YOUR FOOD STORAGE!!!! It is vital that you and your family become familiar with the things you are storing. You need to know how to prepare these foods. Your family needs to know what it tastes like. You do not want to do this under stress. One of the most important things you can do is get your family used to eating these foods. A stressful period or disaster is not the time to totally change your diet.

Get food storage cook book and learn too use the foods you are storing. You can even put one together by adding you favorite recipes into a 3 ring binder marked food storage recipes.
