An emergency could cut off your food supply for
two weeks or months, consider maintaining a supply that will last that long.
As you stock food, take into account your family’s unique needs. Try to include foods that they will enjoy and that are also high in calories and nutrition. Foods that require
no refrigeration, special preparation, or cooking are best.
Make sure you have a manual can opener and disposable utensils.
Don’t forget nonperishable foods for your pets.
We offer long term, long life food you can store for a minimum of
5 years and some up to 25 years. None require cooking, some require no water, while some do need water added.
We live in a modern world where access to food has become incredibly convenient. You have probably witnessed it yourself, the threat of a hurricane or blizzard results in a panicked rush to the grocery store where people empty the shelves. The store usually only stocks three days worth of turn-over and is quickly depleted. Now imagine larger scale events, perhaps a pandemic or substantial civil unrest– are you caught in with the crowd or are you prepared?
Food is a priority for survival. While you can live for weeks without food, even missing a single day worth of meals can cause extreme hunger, dizziness, anxiety, weakness and poor decision making. All of which will take a situation from bad to worse. Give yourself some peace of mind by storing shelf stable food so you can be certain that your family can weather a crisis to the best of your ability.
However we also know that preparing safe, stable long term food for survival is a daunting task which can require a huge of time, resources and knowledge that you may not have. The fastest and easiest way to be ready for a crisis is to purchase bulk food storage. We provide a wide range of Survival and Storage Food to help you form that strong defense against emergency events. Stock up using these supplies at home, the office or at school to make sure you are covered for short or long term emergencies.
How much will you need? This depends on you and your family’s needs. Caloric intake is based on your height, weight, age, sex and activity levels however the average adult male needs 2500 calories or 2000 for an adult female per day. It is recommended that you calculate your needs higher than the average as most survival situations will result in higher energy out-put – be that through physical activity like hiking or even just your body trying to keep itself warm.
We stock Wise Company, MayDay and HeaterMeal branded products. All have a well established history of producing quality emergency food products.
There is an exceptional choice to cater for your needs with a range of single serves, 72 hour kits or up to 12 months of bulk food storage.
Smaller kits like 72 Hour Emergency Food Supply or the Ultimate 72 Hour Kit are ideal for your Bug Out Bag or the outdoor enthusiast. These meals are wonderful to take on camping or hunting trips as they both light weight and easy to prepare. It would also be a great idea to stash one in your car in case of emergencies or even keep the single serves on hand as a grab and go meal for when you need to run out the door.
Wise Company has buckets made to supplement other food storage you might already have. The Meat Kits are a valuable contribution by adding protein and variety to the typical "beans and rice" meals that make up long term emergency food storage.
All of the Wise Company food is packaged in airtight Mylar pouches that if you store in a cool, dry place like a basement, you will have an emergency supply lasting up to 25 years. Wise Company uses a combination of dehydration and freeze-drying that also helps to promote that exceptionally long shelf life. Both freeze-drying and dehydration methods result in food which have maintained their nutritional value, original texture, color and flavor – all while being condensed into a convenient, light weight packet. Simply add water to reconstitute the meal.
Just because these meals are designed for long term storage does not mean they have compromised on variety or flavor. There is no risk of being stuck with bland repetitive meals as even the smaller kits boast enjoyable gourmet flavors like Creamy Pasta and Vegetable Rotini or Brown Sugar and Maple Multi-grain Cereal. Meals have been carefully balanced with delicious sauces to maximize flavor and ensure you are left satisfied. Have special dietary needs? Wise Company also caters for Gluten free lifestyles with Gluten Free kits ranging in size from 204 servings to 2556 servings.
Emergency Food Bars
The MayDay Food Bars are an emergency ration which not only have a great apple cinnamon taste but are designed to meet your daily caloric and nutritional needs – all in a single bar. The bars are also extremely stable, withstanding temperatures of up to 149 degrees which make them the perfect option to carry with you, store in your car or in your desk at the office. A popular option are the 400 calorie “mini meals”, a product which goes beyond the use as a typical emergency food as it would be a handy snack to pack for a long hike or even as light meal if needed.
The Millennium food bar range is designed to be a nutritionally balanced but calorically dense food. At 400 calories this is a small meal packed into the size of a candy bar. It also boasts 8 grams of protein making it great for satiation. These bars come in a variety of enjoyable flavors; Apricot, Blueberry, Cherry, Coconut, Lemon, Orange, Raspberry, Tropical fruit, or Vanilla. Reviewers rate the taste of these bars as “a subtle flavor that receives a thumbs up from the entire family”.
They have a typical protein bar texture that is similar to a chewy cookie and their taste is very popular amongst outdoors enthusiasts. These are also enriched to provide balanced nutrition with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Calcium, Iron, and Niacin.
The Guardian food bars have an enjoyable shortbread cookie flavor and come in portion controlled 400 calorie packs which prevent the loss of food by not having to break pieces off single larger bars.
“Heatermeals” are a self heating MRE (meal ready to eat). The packaging turns into a heating pad which works by a combination of food grade iron and magnesium powder, salt, and water. When the contents of the water pouch are poured over the heater pad, the reaction releases enough heat to warm the pre-cooked meal to 100 degrees Fahrenheit in approximately 10 minutes.
There are many disaster scenarios in which you won’t have access to anything other than what you have prepared and this style of emergency food is particularly helpful as you do not require any additional equipment to produce a hot meal - no campfire, no electricity needed. All HeaterMeal Entrees have up to a 2 year shelf life, are stable and need no refrigeration so they will work well with all of your other emergency supplies.
The method in which they are packaged, using a Retort Packaging, helps to achieve this long shelf life as well as allowing for the food’s original aromas, textures, nutrients, flavors to remain as if you were eating a fresh meal. During a crisis, a nice hot meal will seem like a luxury, so pack a few of these away just in case!
