Essential Survival Foods to Stock in Case of a Disaster

In today’s world, there is always the potential for a disaster to occur, whether that be in the form of a tornado, blizzard, earthquake, or any other type of disaster that could potentially leave you without power for an extended period of time. As a result, it is important to have a stock of survival foods available to make certain that you and your family do not go hungry. However, this requires more than simply putting aside a few of your family’s favorite foods. Focus on calories, carbohydrates, and protein. The following tips will help you decide what survival foods to stock in the event of a disaster. 

•   Water is an absolute necessity. You need a minimum of one gallon of water per person in your family. You should store enough to last for a full two weeks for each individual. (Keep in mind that the life of stored water for approximately 6 months, so be certain to replace it as needed.)
•   Stock up on plenty of canned foods, including vegetables, fruits, and meats, that are ready to eat. Take into consideration whether or not you will have any way of heating foods up because certain foods, particularly meats, may not be appetizing otherwise. Do not forget to have a can opener nearby.
• Include a few instant meals, such as cups of noodles or soup. Keep in mind they will likely require water to be eatable.
•   Be sure to include nonperishable foods, such as rice, dried beans, and pasta. Rice and beans, in particular, tend to be filling and keep you satisfied longer.
•   If you have to have coffee or tea daily, make sure to include instant coffee or tea bags. Just keep in mind that it will take water to prepare.
•   Include plenty of snacks that are easy to eat including applesauce, granola bars, trail mix, peanut butter, crackers, and cereal.
•   Dried milk is important because it can be used to make a variety of foods or drunk from a glass when mixed properly.
•   Have some comfort food, including hard candies, cookies, and candy bars, on hand. You do not have to go completely without the foods you love, although this should not make up the majority of your stockpile. They can definitely improve your mood.
•   Baby food and/ or formula, if young children will be with you.
•   Make sure to consider any special diet requirements of your family members.
•   Be certain to include necessary condiments, such as sugar and salt.
•   It is a good idea to include vitamins for everyone to help keep you healthy.


Be sure to keep a two week supply, although it is unlikely that you will use it all. Check you supplies periodically to make sure they are not expired. In the event of a disaster, preparedness is essential to survival.
