According to a recent report by KOMO-TV in Seattle, Wash., (http://www.komonews.com/news/problemsolvers/Food-Donations-Destroyed-in-School-Flood-235494881.html), a broken water pipe at a middle school in Sedro-Woolley destroyed 200 pounds of food that students had collected for needy families in the area.
The television station rallied viewers to replace the food, but the incident was a vivid reminder of the importance of properly storing food, especially items that are being stockpiled for an emergency.
Food4Patriots (www.Food4Patriots.com), the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, recommends protecting stockpiles of food from extreme temperatures, air, light and moisture, as well as a variety of insects and rodents.
Last summer, the company launched a product line that includes 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits. The food in these kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires nothing more than boiling water. It is kept in easy-to-store Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light. Shelf lives are up to 25 years. Among the nutritious foods that are part of the Food4Patriots’ kits are:
Those who order one of the Food4Patriots Emergency Kits will also receive four reports: “Top 10 Items Sold Out After Crisis,” “The Water Survival Guide,” “The Survival Garden Guide” and “How to Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half.”
For those who have assembled their own emergency food supplies, following are the top 10 storage mistakes that people make:
