20 Days to Ready: Grab Emergency Grub (Day 5)
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
- Dried fruit
- Protein or granola bars
- Peanut butter
- Canned juices
- Pudding cups
- Instant milk packets
- Jarred baby food
