Calculate Your Family's Food Storage Needs

Have you ever wondered how much food you need to stockpile for yourself or the entire family?

Believe it or not, most families do not correctly calculate what food they need.

This calculator may just save your family’s in an emergency. Don’t make the same mistake thousands of people make and not stockpile enough food.

You may need more than you think.

I love this simple and handy food storage calculator. All you need to do is select the number of family members you need to feed.

Then select how many months you are anticipating your food storage needs will last.

Finally, choose either traditional staples (wheat, grains, and starches), freeze-dried, or a mix of both. If you are planning for an extended period, then go with at least a mix of both for longevity.

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food

Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.

People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.

These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
