Food Storage

Why is it Important?

There are many answers to this question, and they may vary from person to person.  Food storage is important to ME because:

  • I want my family to be prepared for the future.
  • Natural disasters
  • Family emergencies
  • Potention loss of job

These are all reasons why food storage can be important for you to have.

—When I was 14 years old, my dad lost his job.  He did not have a job for 11 months.  There were 8 kids at home, and my mom did not work other than a side job here or there.—

How did we survive?

Off our food storage.  I NEVER knew that we were living off our food storage at that time till I was 25 years old!  We always had food on our table, and the days went by like they always did.  My parents made sure to have a large supply with a variety of food at all times.  We had cows for fresh milk and beef in our freezer, we also had chickens for fresh eggs.  As a teenager, life went on, without me ever realizing the stress my parents were under.

This was because they were prepared.  Having regular, common everyday meals on the table made life seem normal.

I want this for my family.

I want life to go on when we don’t have the money we need for food.

That is why WE chose to build a food storage supply.
