Free Food Friday: Win an Emergency Food Supply Kit from Survival Based

Gaye LevyGaye Levy | Updated Apr 17, 2019 (Orig - Jan 23, 2015)

It has been a little over a year since I confessed that the ongoing joke among my family and friends is that I talk about food all of the time but never eat.  That is not quite true since I really do eat, just not that often and not that much.  Quite honestly, my motto when it comes to eating is “give me simple food, that is prepared well, and is tasty”.  Sounds simple enough, right?

To that end, I am always on the lookout to sample different types of emergency foods so I can determine whether it meets my standards.  Last year, when I sampled some meal pouches provided by Backdoor Survival sponsor, Survival Based, I knew I had hit upon a winner.

Win a Free Emergency Food Supply Kit - Backdoor Survival

Today I am thrilled to let you know that Survival Based is once again sponsoring a giveaway that is exclusive to Backdoor Survival readers.  Up for grabs is a  200 serving Emergency Food Supply Kit valued at $143.99 with enough goodies to keep your hunger at bay while digging out following a disaster or other disruptive event.

In each bucket there are 36 pouches containing:

Creamy Stroganoff, 20 servings
Cheddar Broccoli Soup, 20 servings
Cheesy Rice Casserole, 24 servings
Veggie Alfredo, 20 servings
Creamy Potato Soup, 20 servings
Brown Sugar Oatmeal, 40 servings
Non-fat Milk, 32 servings
Instant Orange Drink – 24 servings

Each pouch is 100% vegetarian and only needs water and a few minutes of cooking to prepare. But the best part?  There will be three winners, each receiving an Emergency Food Supply Kit.  I don’t know about you, but I think that is terrific!

Enter to Win One of Three Emergency Food Supply Kits from Survival Based!

You know the drill.  Use the Rafflecopter below to enter this giveaway.

Bargain Bin:  Below you will find links to the items to consider as you are building your own perfect portable survival kit.

BIC Classic Lighters (12): A dozen full size BIC lighters at a bargain price with free shipping.

Rectangular Tin with Window: I found this tin that is very similar to mine on Amazon.com.  Chances are you have something similar already that can be repurposed for free.

Pepper Spray:  It is always good to have some form of defense that will temporarily halt a bad guy that is in your face.  I  suggest purchasing the type you can carry on a key ring or lanyard.

Emergency Mylar Thermal Blankets: You will be surprised at how warm these will keep you. Be sure to test one out in advance so that you have the confidence to trust the blanket in an emergency. You will be amazed at how small and portable these are; a packet will easily fit in a back pocket.  About $7 for a pack of 10.

LifeStraw Personal Water Filter:  At only 2 ounces (in weight), the LifeStraw is suitable for a backpack or bug out bag.  It is easy to use and requires no chemicals to remove a  minimum of 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria.

Potable Aqua Water Treatment Tablets: Water treatment tabs are a survival essential.  They don’t cost much and take up very little room.

Kershaw OSO Sweet Knife: This “oh so sweet” knife is solidly built, stainless steel knife that comes razor sharp right out of the package. It will pretty much cut through anything the price is amazing.

Windstorm Safety Whistle: This particular whistle can be heard a long distance away and above howling wind and other competing sounds.  I love my cheapie whistles but this is the one I would depend on for wilderness survival.

Lavender Essential Oil:  My favorite lavender oil from Spark Naturals.  Enjoy a 10% discount with code BACKDOORSURVIVAL.

A Practical Guide to Storing Food For the Long Term
99 cents for the eBook – also available in print!

When most people start thinking about family preparedness, they focus on food. Not shelter, gear, sanitation, power, self-defense or the myriad of other concerns that need to be addressed following an emergency or disaster situation. Quite simply, food is the number one concern people have second only to their concern for having an adequate supply of water.

The Prepper’s Guide to Food Storage is a book about food: What to store, how to store it and best practices. It is a roadmap for showing ordinary citizens that long-term food storage is not something that will overwhelm or burden the family budget.

This book is based upon my own tried and true personal experience as someone who has learned to live the preparedness lifestyle by approaching emergency preparedness and planning in a systematic, step-by-step manner. Nothing scary and nothing overwhelming - you really can do this!

    • then hide what you’ve acquired. unless the gov’t or someone else makes you leave your home, you can hide a lot of supplies in ways that no one would find them. use your imagination, and use boxes and other containers that used to hold something else.

  22. My greatest concern is keeping up the rotation of my stores to keep them useable. A constant concern with the cost of every thing climbing quickly. ROTATE! Thanks for the chance to win!

    • Jim, I have several perm markers that I date the top of cans with. (face items so you can see label when marking) I also use blue painters tape for dating items also. If you storing boxed items like rice I use same tape to seal up seams on box’s.

    Also, I fear people who will want what we have.

    Reply
    • JM, yrs ago I stopped make spag w/long pasta, instead I use seashell pasta or Tri color that you can eat w/spoon and less messy w/kids. I get the Tones spag seasoning (lg bottle) add a litte sausage/hamburger and your eating well, peaches for desert.

  26. My greatest concern with food storage is making sure items get rotated. I have food stored for not only my household, but with thoughts of other family members living nearby, and it’s difficult rotating food for two households.

    Reply
  32. My biggest concern regard food storage is not having enough volume stored. This concern of mine is based on the time of year that an event may happen requiring us to use stored food. If an event should interrupt normal food distribution beginning late fall through early spring then we’d be forced to tap our supplies. Even into early summer stored food would be the primary source of calories until gardens harvest could begin.

  33. Agree with every one else’s comments. Having enough, being able to protect what we have, rotating so the investment isnt wasted..

  34. Our biggest concern, as with others, is that the supply is adequate with enough variety of foods that we actually like to eat! As grandparents, we are concerned that the young grandkids will be able to remain healthy and flourish in a less than optimal environment.

  45. Greatest concern is the storage of enough. Last large supply was for Y2K and I am using that now as it is near shelf life so am looking forward to seeing what other companies have.

    I am also concerned about possible confiscation of any food either stored or from my garden. I agree that those who do not prepare for even a minor disaster should not reap the benefits of those of us who at least plan for a few days or weeks of emergencies.

    A couple years ago a winter outage caused days of no power so the storage foods came in handy as did the means to cook and keep warm.

It is perfectly legal, Obama signed an Executive Order, can’t remember the number since I had a bad night, I think it’s 13036, but it allows TPTB to come in our homes and take whatever they want. God help us. Is this still the United States of America my ancestors helped found?

  82. I must confess that I want to win this giveaway more than I have wanted to win the others because it will go directly to help ease my #1 fear for the near future…not having enough food set aside yet. I am still actively building my stores up and I get a little bit of the ‘not ready yet’ anxiety. Although I do also agree with what others have mentioned about being able to hold onto what I have against any who would try to take it…’authorities’, so called friends/family, looters etc..

  89. My greatest concern to food storage would have to be temperature fluctuations. I worry my food will go “bad” if it gets too hot or too cold. Likely not as big a problem for dried food, but for canned food this can be a real issue. Another would be water storage…I don’t have any as yet…although I do keep LOTS of empty, clean soda/juice bottles that are ready to go if we hear we’re in for bad weather. I’ve filled them up many times, but they’re much easier to store if they’re put away empty when the storm is past. I know, that’s bad, I will eventually get there, though.

  120. When it comes to my food storage, my biggest concern is regarding how to make it all taste good. To that end, I have been putting together my individual buckets with 1 gallon bags of flour, rice, pinto beans, oats, and sugar, then adding smaller packets of seasonings, brown sugar, dried veggies, dried fruits, and baking soda and powder. A list of recipes is taped to the lid so whoever is cooking can prepare the meal. I’m working on adding honey and tea soon, as well as cocoa and tang. These supplies you’re giving away would be greatly appreciated for some variety!

So my the second part is of course becoming more of an issue to me. I am greatly concerned when I hear that FEMA now has the power to walk into my home and take what I have managed to save to give to those who are too lazy to take care of themselves. This is a major concern for me but I believe I have come up with a way to combat even FEMA. I have intentionally stored some things in plain sight. So when they (FEMA) come they can take what they can see but they will never get it all. Most of what I have they will never know I have because I avoided using credit cards to purchase. I use the cards to get cash and purchase with cash at places around home. I figure this way nobody really knows what I have and what I don’t.
    Great site Gaye. I love this page and I love you. Thanks for all you do for all of us.

  134. A big concern for me is having to relocate every few years due to the nature of my husband’s job. Cross country moves, not DIY. Our current home is the first in which I have built up a supply of preps and food/water. Light weight food storage options will be our best choice to invest our money in because canned food will cost too much to move. I would love to be the winner of a food bucket!

  135. Cost is a huge concern for me, plus keeping up with outdated products that slip under my radar. I rotate as much as possible, but some things don’t get noticed. Also critters getting into things. We’ve tried to store stuff in a more protected way since finding some of our food chewed up after coming home from a vacation a while back. Oooooh that was so discouraging to find!

  136. Biggest concern is cost, then trying to keep things rotated so we don’t find outdated or spoiled food items. Also trying to keep the critters at bay since finding some of our food chewed up after returning home from a vacation a while back.

  140. I really enjoy all the articles and information. I try to read and learn as much as possible. Living on a limited income makes getting prepared for whatever may happen difficult, but not impossible. You have to look for the items you would normally use and buy them when they are on sale . Dollar stores are a great place to start.

  153. My biggest concern is that my kids won’t like what I can make from it, and so they won’t eat. They are not really picky eaters, but there are some things they definitely don’t like. So we have test days, where I test a new recipe or an old one using only food storage.

  160. My fear is that my family will run out of food. None of my extended family (parents, siblings family) are preparing at all. On a tight budget we do not have the means to have enough food for all of them. I also worry about keeping it safe. If we have to bug out for a bit we can not keep our supplies protected. Part of that fear is that I will not have enough stored in time and SHTF.
    I am always looking for ways that might help me be more prepared.

  163. I did share this on my Facebook TWICE and it hasn’t shown up yet???… Oh well. I am always looking for good tasting emergency foods. Would love to win this and try it.

  173. My greatest concern is that many people may not store any extra food, or even see a need to. My prayer is that as “prepping” becomes more and more mainstream, the common sense that underlies the movement–that it only makes sense to keep something by, just as our ancestors did–will become the prevailing mentality. This is, in large part, why I wrote my latest novel, called PULSE.

  183. Anyone out there have a “picky” household?,… by that I mean that no one in the family (other than me) eats “leftovers”,…? I guess making “just-enough” servings for the number of mouths – per meal – will be the order of the day!

  188. I am new to this and have several concerns. First is having enough food and enough variety of kinds of food to nourish us for more than a few weeks or months if necessary. Second is having it stored correctly so that it doesn’t go bad or become infested. Third is having enough pet food stored to keep the furry members of the family fed as well. Lastly, concerned about storing it discreetly so that in case of emergency the whole neighborhood doesn’t descend on us.

  189. My greatest concern since I live in Earthquake Country, is having enough food and water and that these items stay fresh and healthy to eat. The foods need to have a long shelf life and be swapped out when the shelf life expires.
