Will keep the bag of needles in mind as well. also vitamines/minerals/antibiotics. I try to think in terms of light weight but efficient and what children can carry within thier support bags, smh. LORD A DEEPSPACE -EXODUS-CRAFT WOULD ASSIST (WITH A MANNA DISTRIBUTER) THAT CAN HOLD OVER 100,000,000,000 HUMANS FROM EA*RTH HERD PAST & PRESENT. Optimistic.

Manna (Hebrew: מָ‏ן‎) or Manna wa Salwa (Arabic: مَنّ‎, Kurdish: gezo, Persian: ترنجبين‎), sometimes or archaically spelled mana, is an edible substance that God provided for the Israelites during their travels in the desert according to the Bible and the Qur'an.

I broke out my food storage by self life. I have a 3 month supply of food for myself and my wife at 2,000 cal/kal a day with a long term storage food type with at least 30 year self, next would be the 5 year self life, MREs at one month supply each, then the canned goods.

in total we have about 6 months each at 2,000 cal/kal. The main goal is to only use that food in the winter and get to living off the gardens, chickens, and cattle ASAP.

SHTF may last 30 years, what good will your one year food supply do for you the rest of the 29 years.

Don't forget to buy the manual can opener. That food is no good if there's a power outage and you can't open the darned cans!

This should be a cooking show on cable tv.

I hope this picture image works. It shows how to use plastic bottles to protect food.

Have to be careful with plastic and get the right kind. (food grade)

You can actually get food grade 6 gallon buckets at most home building supply stores (check the label to see if they are also recommended for food storage). Get the better screw on lids (versus the snapping ones).

Then, get some mylar bags and O2 absorbing packs (can get these from different prepper style websites), and you can store things like rice, beans, noodles, potato flakes, oats and grains, for more than 10 years!

Just buy those items from a discount bulk store like Sam's Club, Costco, etc. and stock them in the buckets.

My plan is to pretty much have a 6 month supply for 15-20 people. (as my place is kind of the goto place in our circle of friends, if the SHTF). The big challenge is meat and protein without refrigeration. You can get it, but it's expensive, and you'd want to rotate through it.

For veggies, we're starting a decent sized garden, so that'll be a fun project.
