Five Aspects of a Successful Food Pantry
It’s important that you have in your pantry the EXACT kinds of foods that you and your
family already eat. If lasagna is your favorite dish, then make sure you have all of the fixins for lasagna.What ever it is, you need to be prepared to not just to fill up their stomachs, but to satisfy their cravings aswell in order to abate your stress in preparing and serving and their stress in eating it. Being forced to eat
foreign, unsatisfying foods creates an unfathomable amount of stress. Don’t belie
ve me? Just think of the
last time you tried to feed your 4 year old something that they didn’t want. Now imagine your entire family
acting that way.
While feeding your family what they like now is critical
it’s not always possible should
yourfood supplies become interrupted. Quality fruits, vegetables, sources of fiber and vitamins are already hard
to find, in spite of today’s advance techn
ologies. Thus anticipating the difficulty in finding them in achaotic event is even more realistic
. Yes your family will indeed become ill if you haven’t considered how
to nourish them with appropriate nutrition as opposed to just filling them up. This is why I recommend thatfolks familiarize themselves now with quality nutrition in their food. Wheat, sprouts, freeze-dried fruitsand vegetables, and a good source of quality vitamins are actually critical NOW for your family to use
letalone later when their bodies will be stressed by more physical and mental challenges. The good news isthat this kin
d of nutrition is economical to bring into the home. So don’t delay. Familiarize yourself with
working with wheat, sprouting, and using freeze-dried foods. And put vitamins that will actually beabsorbed into your body in your daily routine now.
Acquiring your foods and other preparedness supplies should never require going into debt.However, many of us go into debt for less vital goods. Take the 30 day challenge and for an entire month
do not purchase ANYTHING that is non-essential. With the money you save, spend it on that which maytruly be lifesaving
your preparedness supplies. Acquisition can be very CHEAP actually if youincorporate the use of coupons and keeping an eye out for sales. I have buckets and buckets of necessaryitems that I have received for FREE because of the use of coupons. (See more below)
Once you bring products into your home, you need to make them last as long as possible.Purchasing freeze-dried products or products with a longer shelf life is a good way to start. But you canalso obtain regular grocery items and have them last a long time in you pantry as well.
