Food Provisioning From Survivors of War and Hyper-Inflation Disasters

This disaster survival food list was prepared from the merged recommendations of survivors of the recent war in the Sarajevo region and the Argentina hyper-inflationary period. We have categorized their survival food suggestions and supplemented with some additional details based on new items currently available.

Disaster Survival Food Items That Disappear First in Troubled Times

Their admonitions were to buy these disaster survival food items now while relatively cheap and store for future use. Rotate and replace the more perishable items over time to keep them safely consumable. Buy on sale and/or in bulk now, while no one is paying attention to your purchases.

Grains are best bought in a 2 tier fashion.
--Barley, etc.

Tier 1--Canned beans of all kinds, small bags of rice and wheat flour for baking for use in 1-3 years.

Tier 2--Bulk beans, rice, and grains in 25-50 year storage containers of 1 to 5 gallon size.

You can obtain these kinds of products from Emergency Essentials--These folks have been helping people prepare for over 20 years. They offer a wide variety of emergency and longterm foods plus many useful emergency supplies. Their inventory contains over 900 special products in this category. Check out their unique catalog by clicking on a logo of your interest on the right side of this page.

The next item to acquire pertains to gardening should things remain grim in the food supply realm. Nothing like being independent from "just-in-time-inventory" concepts.

Garden Seeds
(For gardening in the future. Non-hybrid seeds are a must if you can get them before supplies run out.)

Survival-in-a-Can for a family of 4 (Lasts 1 month). (These are great for "bug out" support should things become so dire that you have to leave your home and hit the road. Several of these are not too heavy to carry but they can keep your family from starving until you can acquire other food resources. These buy you time!)

Again, Emergency Essentials can meet these special needs also. Check them out.
