Supersizing Food Storage with BUCKETS

Supersizing Food Storage

I was asked to give a class one time on storing food in buckets and I definitely could relate to Brian Regan with his cup of dirt , but instead I was more like… ”It’s a bucket, with food in it. I call it BUCKET OF FOOD.” Somehow I managed to come up with a few more things to say, and even ran over my 30 minute time limit. Even though there’s not much to it, I get more questions about how to store food than anything else. It’s something that anyone who is serious about getting food storage needs to think about, because if you’re investing your time and money into food, you want to make sure you’re storing it properly!

Do you need food storage?

A food storage program is essential to provide for ourselves and our family members in an emergency. The biggest motivator most adults have is to avoid hearing a hungry child cry. Even the most “macho” man is distraught if he cannot provide food or beverage to prevent a child from suffering.

I would like to discuss about food storage.Start by taking an inventory—take a physical count of all of your reserves. This would be a great family home evening project if you’re prepared. We need to know where we are. Every family should have an inventory. Now that you know where you are and where you need to be, the third step is to work out a time schedule for when you will reach your goal. I suggest that one year from today we ought to have a year’s supply of food in all homes. [Read more…]
