Unlocking the mastery of bucket food storage: Essential for complete preparedness
By Zoey Sky // Mar 12, 2024

As a prepper, you can sleep better at night knowing that you have access to essential food supplies in case of disasters like blizzards or tropical storms.

Make sure your stockpile contains staples such as canned food, assorted spices and grains like beans and rice. If possible, stock up on food buckets to ensure your supplies last longer. (h/t to FCS.UGA.edu)

Buy bulk staples for your food supply

When SHTF, you need to eat balanced meals regularly to maintain your strength and stay healthy.

However, before you spend money on food supplies, you should first plan menus to include as much variety as possible. Don't waste money on food that your family doesn't like, but make sure you stock up on nutritious ingredients to ensure overall health when bugging in after SHTF.

When deciding what foods to stock, choose wisely. Think of the different ways you can cook with versatile items, and make a list of several ways to prepare it.

One approach to long-term food storage is to store bulk staples, such as beans and rice, together with different canned and dried foods.

To save money, buy things like salt, beans, corn and wheat. When stored properly and in sturdy containers, these items are fairly inexpensive and have nearly unlimited shelf life.

Other foods to pair with your bulk staples

Bulk staples offer a limited menu, which is why you need to supplement them with air-dried or freeze-dried foods, packaged mixes and other supermarket goods.

Canned meats are ideal, along with other items like rice and various beans. You can also add ready-to-eat cereals, dried fruits, pasta mixes and rice mixes since they will add variety to your menus.

If you're only starting your survival stockpile, start slow. Build your everyday stock of canned goods until you have extra supplies for a two-week to one-month supply.

Rotate your supplies periodically to maintain a supply of common foods that will not require special preparation, water, or cooking.

If you want to, buy commercially packaged, freeze-dried, or air-dried foods. Other options include stored meat or canned meats.

Make sure all dry ingredients or supplies are properly stored in sturdy containers and off the floor in clean, dry, dark places away from moisture. Foods will maintain their quality longer if you avoid any extreme changes in temperature and exposure to light.

Buy grains for your stockpile

If you want to stock up on bulk wheat, choose dark hard winter or dark hard spring wheat. Choose wheat with a #2 grade or with a protein content of 12 to 15 percent and moisture content that is less than 10 percent.

If wheat is not already stored in nitrogen-packed cans, store it in sturdy five-gallon food-grade plastic buckets or containers with tight-fitting lids.
