When it comes to food storage, I like to think I have all bases covered. Canned goods, bulk foods, freeze dried products – you name it, I have it. As I tend to preach, having variety is as important as having foods that your family will eat.
Realistically, in a survival situation you will likely eat anything, including plants that you forage and even snakes, bugs and heaven-forbid, road kill. Fortunately, the likelihood of a desperate and dire survival situation is remote when compared to the possibility of a short term crisis or disaster where you will need to fend for yourself for a much more limited period, say one week to one year.
