Survival Food


When it comes to preparedness and survival, knowing what food to store is key.

There are lists out there that cover a few survival foods, however, none of them explain why you should stock up on 'grains' for example. Or even what you can do with them when TSHTF.

This article will detail 131 Survival Foods, and you can use it as your guide​ to preparing. If you're looking for ideas on which foods to add to your preps, you're in the right place.

The motto above is one the team here at PrepperZine live by. It is pointless stocking up on oats if you can't stand eating them.

The key to choosing the right survival foods is to only purchase what you eat TODAY. If you don't like a food item today, you're not going to like it in a disaster scenario.

Pay attention to what your family likes to eat. Each time you prepare food, write down what items you used from your pantry or store cupboard.

After 2-3 weeks you will start to see a pattern emerging - you can then use that list of foods and combined with the other 131 survival foods listed in this guide, you will be well on your way to a survival store to be proud of!
