Official USDA statistics reveal that the average cost to feed a family of 2 adults and 4 children is $14,955.60 per year. Wise's ready-made meals run about $1.60 a serving, making them truly affordable. Our prices are low because we want to work with you to help protect your most important asset, your family.

Because our meals have a 25-year shelf life and won‟t need to be rotated every few years like other food storage products, they will save you thousands of dollars long-term. By investing in Wise meals, through the years will again save thousands of dollars. In an emergency, food may be worth more than diamonds or gold.

Minimal Storage Area

Typical food storage can take an incredible amount of space to store that most families don‟t have. Other food storage companies will want you to purchase a year‟s supply comprising as many as 85 large cases full of awkward and bulky #10 cans. With Wise Company, in no more space than is taken up by a washer and dryer, you can store enough freeze-dried meals to feed a family of 6 for a full year. Long Term Emergency Food Supply


Where should I store my Wise Food?

This depends upon where you live. Meals made up of both freeze-dried and dehydrated components are affected by temperature, moisture and light. Optimal storage conditions for our meals are in cool, dry places.

How much water will I need?

On average, each individual serving requires 1 cup of water.

Do I have to use boiling water?

Hot water speeds up the process of reconstitution. Wise meals will be ready to eat more quickly when hot water is used. However, many of the meals can be re-hydrated and ready to eat with any temperature of water.

How are the meals packaged?

100% of our meals are packaged in mylar pouches that each hold 4 adult servings. These pouches are then arranged in durable polyethylene buckets for easy storage.

How long do the meals last in storage?

Up to 25 years. For optimal storage life it is suggested that food be stored in a cool, dry place, such as a basement room temperatures of 55 to 60 degrees .

How much food should we have stored for our family?

The needs of each family are different. To help you develop a rough estimate, the servings in Wise Food products are for one adult or two children 10 and under. So for a family of four, to eat three meals a day for 30 days you would need 270 servings.

Wise Foods Testimonials:

"I originally purchased Wise Food Storage with the purpose of being better prepared in case of emergency. But because the meals taste so good and are packaged in individual pouches we found ourselves using the meals not only for emergency preparedness but also every day use." --Heidilyn Thrapp, Hyrum UT

"From the very beginning I have been impressed with Wise Company. Besides the meals tasting great and the customer service being exceptional, I was most impressed with the meal packaging. I really like the fact that the meals are individually packaged in mylar pouches and then stored in sealed buckets. This provides greater accessibility and portability for my emergency food storage." --Kaye Firth, Tremonton UT

"We just moved to Manhattan for two years while my husband goes to graduate school, and one thing I insisted on bringing with us was a three-month supply of Wise Food, which I‟m stashing in different spots around the apartment. With a three-year-old and one on the way, it‟s comforting to know it‟s there in case of emergency." --Heidi Foss, New York, NY

"Our past food storage experience has been a process of storing and wasting. No matter how hard we tried to rotate and use our storage, we always ended up with cans of expired food. With Wise Food Storage, we are done . . . and we don‟t have to worry for the next 25 years".--Chris Shill, Layton UT
