This detailed 21-page resource will thoroughly teach and guide you to understanding everyday food storage in the home.
First, understand the who, what and where of everyday food storage.
We never know what emergency may befall us during which we may not be able to obtain food or drink. The emergency may be loss of job or inability to work due to accident or illness. This may result in a situation where financial resources to purchase food would not be available or may be decreased appreciably. Natural catastrophe such as flood, earthquake or storms may result in temporary inability to distribute food to supermarkets. Under these conditions, even having money to purchase food does not mean it can be obtained. Even in the United States each of the above conditions occurs occasionally. Because of the possibility of such emergencies the Civil Defense recommends storing food and drink adequate for your family’s needs for a two-week period. Certain church organizations have recommended their members “Have on hand a year’s supply of food, fuel, clothing and where possible money.”
A food storage program is essential to provide for ourselves and our family members in an emergency. The biggest motivator most adults have is to avoid hearing a hungry child cry. Even the most “macho” man is distraught if he cannot provide food or beverage to prevent a child from suffering.
Since the human body is about 65 percent water we must consider it as an important nutrient. Rubner, a German physiologist, found that during starvation an animal can live if it loses nearly all the glycogen and fat, as well as half the body protein, but a loss of 20 percent of the water in the body results in death. One can live without food for over a month, but without water only a few days.
Enough people have eaten for a long enough period of time that some conclusions on “What to Eat?” can be drawn from experience. Some average amounts of the nutrients required for growth, maintenance and reproduction of the human system have been published. These nutrients are distributed among the food groups:
Appropriate servings from each food group combined into a daily intake will provide an adequate nutrient supply.
This everyday food storage guide will teach you how to use the Daily Food Guide Pyramid, starting your food storage, how much to storage, your storage area, storage life, causes of food deterioration, what affects storage life, packaging materials and keeping bad things out of your food supply. Once you have read this everyday food storage resource you can become a food storage master and prepare your home for an emergency!
