Homemade 72 Hour Emergency Food Supply Kits

Personally, I think we all should have a few 72-hour emergency food supply kits as part of our preps. They are easy to make, easy to hide and store, and easy to grab if you have to get out of your house in an emergency.

These are not long-term food items.  The website recommends you use them up after a year or so. The best way to do this is to have an “emergency preparedness food day”.  Have your family round up and consume the kits that are close to expiring.

Although if you have read up on busting the canned food expiration myth, you may be more inclined to wait about 2 years until considering using the kits up.

You can include whatever bug out bag food you’d like in the kits. However, the article below has a good selection of high-calorie items that will keep you going for 3 days.
