Food Preparation & Storage

20 of the Longest Lasting Foods that Will Keep You Well Fed Years After the SHTF

Regardless as to why you are prepping, food should be in your top 5 items to start with. Before making a list of food to stockpile, the first step is to figure out how many people you will be feeding in a survival situation. You will require more calories per day than you require in your day to day living in the “normal” world.

You also need to consider what you can eat for a long period of time without getting bored or burnt out on eating the same food day in and day out.

Once you have a good handle on how many people you’re feeding, and whether or not you can eat the same food for possibly months at a time, then you can start stockpiling your food. Below you will find 20 types of food that last longer than most foods you find in your local grocery store.
