Emergency Food Storage for your home

The thought of an emergency situation is frightening but allowing your family to go hungry is not an option. Discussing difficult times before they occur can make them easier to face, and less frightening! A simple long-term food-storage plan can be created for any home to avoid dire situations. However, it isn't as simple as just buying beans and rice. You need to consider foods essential to survival. You need to consider meals that are easy to store and eat, how long they can be stored for, and simply, where to store them! One company that sells survival kits for such scenarios is Heaven's Harvest. We provide emergency food kits containingfreeze-foods that are perfect for storing in your residential home.

Emergency Food Storage for your home.

  • What is emergency food?

  • Why do you need emergency food?

  • Types of emergency food.

  • How to store your emergency food.

There are two main types of meals that are considered“emergency foods”: dehydrated/freeze-dried foods and MREs (meals ready to eat). Each type of meal has pros and cons - it's important to choose which is right for you, based on your home’s needs. If you live alone, then a dehydrated/freeze-dried meal may be more cost-effective as you can purchase individual meals in a small bags; however, if you have multiple children or family members to prepare for, an MRE makes sense as they can be shared among multiple people without wasting any leftover ingredients from previous meals. Heaven’s HarvestCOMBINES dehydrated/freeze-dried foods with MREs - creating large portions of easy to prepare tasty meals, just using water!

What is emergency food for?

There are many reasons for having emergency food on hand. Natural disasters, power outages and economic collapse are just a few of the headlineswe see in the news everyday! For example, a national disaster like Hurricane Katrina means that after the storm has passed and things have returned to normal, stores will still be closed and will take time to restock their shelves with fresh food. And as we saw in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria in 2017 - even when grocery stores reopen there may not be any electricity or transportation available for weeks or months afterward which means no way for residents to get out and buy groceries! Losing regular access to food has occurred more frequently since Covid-19; with factory shutdowns, transportation delays, and media scare tactics - people are no longer certain who to believe or where to turn in an emergency. Many are left scared or scrambling at the last minute.

If you’ve planned ahead, you’ll rest easily knowing you have stockpiled supplies of nonperishable foods when uncertain times are looming. Heaven’s Harvest Entree buckets come in 1 month, 3 month, 6 month, and 1 year supplies, and are contained in a stackable, and transportable4-gallonwaterproofbucket.

Can I just buy extra canned goods at the market?

Canned foods may be the easiest to store, but they aren't always the best option. They're high in sodium and fat, and may contain preservatives like BPA. Canned food typically has a 1-year shelf life and is great for short-termemergencies. However, they are not the best choice for long-term survival situations.

Our 3 Month Combo Kit has everything you need and stores away easily in your home with a shelf life of up to 25 years on most items. Just look at what the kit from Heaven’s Harvest offers!
