The best way to start a Food Storage, is with Emergency Preparedness. In fact, it’s one of the most popular reasons why people decide to get going on a Food Storage in the first place. Help someone start out their journey right- with some of the following ideas:
Options that are Free or Under $1
Emergency Preparedness Plan
Print out our Emergency Preparedness plan that has detailed checklists to help a family make their family plan, build a disaster kit – including a 72 hour food kit, and put together an evacuation list and car kit. Roll up the plan, wrap a ribbon around it, stick a bow on, and attach the Day 1 tag.
An Option that is $5-$30
Car Kit or 72 Hour Kit
Make, or purchase a pre-made Car Kit or 72 Hour Kit. These can be found at stores, or online. Consider even just putting together a little first aid kit for someone’s car. Don’t forget to attach the Day 1 tag to your kit!
Perfect for a 72 hour kit, give one (or more) Insta Fire Individual Packs. These come in a set of 24, so you can give them all to one person, or give them as stocking stuffers to multiple people. You can even make a cute little #10 Can Stove to put them in.
A butane stove is something every family should have. They can be used to cook indoors, boil water quickly, and cook a regular stovetop meal on. They are inexpensive and so important to have on hand!
A More Expensive Option
The FireBox Stove is a thin, portable campfire and multi-fuel stove with a 5″ combustion chamber that burns very efficiently. Great for camping or simple powerless cooking in an emergency.
