February is all about Short Term Food Storage!

Gordon B. Hinckley said, “We have built grain storage and storehouses and stocked them with the necessities of life in the event of a disaster.” But those goods cannot help us if we cannot reach them. He continued, “The best storehouse is the family storeroom” (“If Ye Are Prepared Ye Shall Not Fear,” Oct. 2005 general conference).

The first thing to establish in a family food storage plan is Short Term Food Storage.  This is a 3 month supply of foods you eat on regular basis.

For ideas on what to store, where to store it and how to buy it on a budget, watch this months' video

Short Term Food Storage Made Easy

On the video, some food sources are mentioned.  Local stores are Winco, Maceys and Alpine Food Storage.  Great deals can also be found at classifieds Farmers Markets and Fresh Produce Section.

The goals for February are to establish at least a 1 month food supply, to get in the habit of buying something for storage during every trip to the store, and to figure out where to store your food. 

Enjoy your road to self reliance and we will be back next month with info on Long Term Food Storage!
