What food should be stockpiled for an emergency?
- STEVEN FLv 76 months ago
What KIND of emergency? The main criteria are long shelf life and portability. A warehouse full of the best food available is WORTHLESS if you can't get too where it is stored, or can't get it to where you need to be.

depends where you will be tbh. If it's underground, I would say canned food and pretty much what everyone else is saying.

Nonperishable. Protein/fruit bars, dry cereal, granola, peanut butter, dried fruit, canned juices, jerky.

Nothing perishable. And anything that can be eaten cold. In other words can and MRE's
The same things that stores run out of here in Florida, just before a hurricain.Source(s): Common sence and living where there are hurricains

What foods SHOULD be stockpiled for an emergency ?
COMMON SENSE that which is NON PERISHABLE
now WATER is not defined as a FOOD
...FOOD is any NUTRITIONAL SUBSTANCE ( CALORIES ) human s or animals eat or DRINK to maintain LIFE and growth
clean water is a NECESSITY and should be stockpiled

Canned meats, canned vegetables, dried pasta, rice, canned soups.

The big thing is water it is difficult to cook or was without it.
If you do stock up on canned goods and dry goods remember to rotate them into use so you don't have a pantry full of spam that is past the sell by date

No perishable foods. Think dried goods and canned stuff. Freeze dried is also good. My mother in law just buys mre packs. She has them all enclosed in a water proof bag up off the ground in a cool and dry place.

3-5 days of MREs should suffice in most areas. They keep almost forever and are easy to store.
