Emergencies happen. But it’s how prepared we are that can truly mean the difference between life or death. Whether you live in a hurricane-prone area, tornado alley, major city or suburbs, a food kit is key.
A prep kit can provide you with security during an average day’s worries, preventing you from staying up at night wondering if your family is as safe as it could be.
Today at Amazon, Wise Company emergency kits are up to 42 percent off. The kits have incredibly long shelf lives (25 years!), and users say the grub actually tastes pretty good — a rarity for most emergency food products.
Food comes in individually wrapped pouches which typically serve four, all packed in a large bucket with a carry handle for easy toting, just in case. And there’s no cooking necessary — just add water.
The stackable buckets, which cost $53 to $70, can be kept in your basement or car. And you can take individual pouches with you when hiking or camping.
One five-star reviewer put it best: “You can't be stupid these days...you need a food supply ready for anytime. The 25 year shelf life can't be beat. Then even if nothing ever happens I will eat it when I retire. Highly recommended.”
This prep kit comes with 170 servings of food (yep, 170 servings), so it’s perfect for large families. The offerings range from multigrain cereal and whey milk alternative to cheesy macaroni and veggie chili soup. 25-year shelf life.
The 13 different lunch and dinner entrees in this 60-serving kit are nice and hearty. Think savory stroganoff, potato pot pie and cheesy lasagna. 25-year shelf life.
One five-star reviewer said: “Not too bad. Even for ‘vegetarian’ food, this had a fairly good flavor. My wife and I cooked up a couple of different packets for a taste test; not worried about running out of food in an emergency situation. Good product for the price and the shelf life is an added bonus.”
