ASSIGNMENT: Put Together an Emergency Food Supply
When an emergency happens and the power goes out, a refrigerator full of food isn’t going to last long. Ready.gov recommends a three-day supply of non-perishable food. Be sure to consider the dietary needs of people in your household and special supplies for any infants in your home.
Some foods that last a while and don’t require refrigeration include:
Ready-to-eat tuna or canned meats
Protein or granola bars
Instant milk packets
Jarred baby food
With an emergency food supply in your pantry, you can keep bellies full until help arrives—just make sure you keep at least one manual can opener, or remember this trick, for all your canned foods.
