STORING FOOD
Page 1Updated November 5, 2001
NOTE: THESE PAGES HAVE BEEN DRAMATICALLY UPDATEDIN DARE TO PREPARE — 3rd EDITION 
In the land of plenty it's easy to be too dependent on our grocery stores. Ever notice prior to a storm or holiday how stores' supplies rapidly dwindle? We thinkof stocking up right before a big snowstorm or hurricane, but lose sight of thisneed when it's warm and sunny.Natural disasters, layoffs, illness preventing employment and terrorists don't telltime or consult us for convenience. Should disaster strike with roads impassable,how would delivery trucks bring that fresh produce, milk and meat? How soonwould grocery stores be picked clean of canned goods and bottled water? Howlong would
their 
meats and refrigerated items last with no electricity? No longer than ours.The average American home keeps less than
one week 
of food on hand andgenerally NO water. The average grocery store has only 72 hours of productbefore
it 
must restock. Most federal, state and local governments, as well asmany emergency prep sites like the Red Cross, suggest that 72 hours of extrafood and water is adequate. We don't think so. While there is no reason to gooverboard, if people only have a 72 hour supply, and ditto for the stores, what willyou do on Day 4 while the grocery restocks? What if you have company when adisaster hits? What about neighbors that haven't prepared? Could you let themgo hungry? Have you remembered your pets? They need food and water too.If your budget can withstand a little stretching, food storage planning would be agood idea.A reliable place to start is The Food Storage Planner, a program developed by thefolks at Revelar Software.

While the Revelar program offers very good software for developing your personal foodstorage program, it no longer supports MacIntosh systems. The Deyo Food Planner has375 food and household items listed plus room for you to add many items. We liked theRevelar program, but not everyone can afford $40 so we have designed a program touse. We like it so well that we want to share it with you! And
it's FREE
