The American Red Cross recommends having at least a three-day supply of bulk emergency food for every member of your family. The best bulk survival foods have a long shelf life and require minimal preparation, making our bulk dehydrated veggies and TVP a perfect choice. Our freeze dried fruits, veggies, and TVP can be eaten right out of the package, and our dehydrated vegetables, beans, and legumes can be used in a variety of recipes or rehydrated with a little water for healthy meals that are loaded with nutrition.
Generally speaking, our food products have a long shelf life, around two years and can last even longer, depending on climate conditions. Oxygen and moisture shorten the freeze-dried food shelf life, which can affect long term survival food storage beyond a year. However, some of our customers opt to vacuum seal our products and store them in storage pails so that they can last even longer, as long-term survival food.
The time to prepare for an emergency is before anything happens, and we recommend ordering a mix of bulk emergency food for greater variety.
