Having long term food storage is a great way to get prepared for any emergency. When supplying your long term food storage with foods, think about what types of foods you and your family eat, and what type of ingredients you use on a daily bases. This will help you get an idea of what food storage items you will need in your long term emergency storage. One item you will want to make sure to have on hand is steel cut oats. Not only are they healthy for you, but they keep you fuller for longer, plus can be used in a variety of things.
