Food storage is one of the first things you should consider when beginning to prepare for a crisis like the one we are in now, or the aftermath of this one, which will be far more severe. Other than water, your focus should be on food and how to make sure you’ve got enough.

The ten items that I’ve listed below are going to be a good way to start preparing.  They can still be purchased right now and will offer decent nutritional content when there’s no food anywhere else. The sooner you start, the better.   You may choose to purchase these items all at once, or you can pick up one or two items from the list each time you go grocery shopping.

  1. 20 lbs. of rice – this is a great filler and can be easily added to soups to bulk up the meal.
  2. 20 lbs. of beans black and pinto beans are both good choices. Beans are filling and nutrient-dense. You can get white beans or kidney beans too.  Really, just get something you’ll want to eat.
  3. 24 cans of meat – get something you like.  If you don’t like spam, don’t buy it.  We store canned chicken because that’s something everyone likes and will eat.
  4. 24 cans of vegetables – getting a variety of different vegetables could help with food boredom if you actually have to start eating from your prepper pantry, but it can be easier to just buy a whole bundle of the same canned vegetables.
  5. 24 cans of soup/broth – Again, but what you like and consider different kinds of soup.
  6. 12 large cans of spaghetti sauce – this stuff is cheap and it’s easy to make a quick meal out of it.  You can even heat it up without having pasta in a pinch and add some water for a tomato soup.
  7. 2 lbs. peanut butter – it won’t hurt to have more peanut butter.  It’s universally liked and lasts for years when stored properly and is full of healthy fats and proteins.
  8. 5 lbs. of salt to cure meat or season food.
  9. 10 lbs. pancake mix – look for one that only requires the addition of water to make up a batch of batter. These can be made for any meal and eaten with peanut butter, jam, or honey.
  10. 1 gallon of cooking oil – try to choose something like olive oil or coconut oil because those healthy fats will be a lot better for you.

Please don’t forget to have a working can opener on hand. These are fairly inexpensive but it will be worth having to get in your canned foods if you have to. You don’t have to spend a lot on a can opener, the only suggestion is to get one of decent quality that won’t break after a few uses and make sure it’s manual in case you need to use it in the absence of electricity.

Eating healthy may not be our biggest concern if we have to dip into our prepper pantry.  But during a pandemic such as the one we’re all living through now, it is beneficial to make sure your body has a fighting chance if you do come in contact with a viral infection.

These foods can hopefully help some people begin to start storing food and organizing a prepper pantry.  These aren’t, by any means, all of the foods you can store, but they are a good starting point for those just beginning.
