You never know when some sort of disaster might happen, but you can be ready. Please note that this is only a 72 hour supply, so I like to put in some comfort foods, this is in no way similar to my longer term food storage, which is geared to a longer survival period.
One gallon plastic food container per kit (it is very hard to fit all the food into the container so I planned on using 1 gallon zip lock bags) Also added a couple of Oxygen Absorbers in each container for good measure.
Food items on the menu:
3 Day Food Supply for One
- Day 1
- Day 2
- Day 3
- EXTRA ITEMS TO KEEP WITH YOUR CONTAINER
- ONE YEAR ROTATION
Some food items last longer than others. Related: Shelf life of food.
Tip: If you use mints keep them in a separate baggie or they will make your crackers taste like mint. GOOD TO KNOW!
This “menu” is purely an example. You can put in your jar what ever you want. Food preferences and choices are and should be up to the individual making the kit. I realize lot of you might disagree with the food choices I have used, but it is my choice, you pack yours the way you want, with MREs and long-term food storage items.
