Win a can organizer – Carolina Food Storage emergency preparedness

Because my husband and I believe in being prepared for emergencies, we try to keep on hand extra food just in case.  When we stock up, much of the food that we buy is canned food or dehydrated food because it is already cooked and shelf stable.  Having a bunch of cans stacked on top of each other in the pantry can be an accident waiting to happen.  It makes much more sense to store them in a can organizer. Not only does it keep the cans from toppling to the ground, it helps keep your supply rotated. Add to the back and take from the front.

Can Organizer – Emergency Preparedness

You don’t need to be limited to canned food in your emergency supply stock.  There’s a wide range of tasty dehydrated food that you can keep on hand in case you loose power.  You can find almost everything dehydrated including dairy, vegetables, fruits, grains, meats, beans, desserts and soups.  These are shelf stable so they have a very long shelf life and generally only need the addition of water to turn them into a tasty meal.  Dehydrated foods are generally packaged in large cans for easy stacking with a lid that you can remove and then put back on top to make them last longer.  You can take out and prepare just what you need whether that’s for one person or ten.

Thrive Foods

I received samples of the Thrive Foods chicken, onions and celery from Carolina Food Storage .  I’d never tried these particular products before so I was curious to see how they tasted.  Because they are sample sized, they were in resealable bags instead of in cans.  It was a simple matter of adding water and waiting to prepare a delicious Chicken Salad recipe.   The sample size is ideal so you can taste the product before you stock up. You want to make sure you like the taste before you buy five cans to put in your emergency preparedness pantry. Check out my recipe to see how amazingly yummy this was. There’s no way I would have believed that it came from shelf stable food.

Thrive chicken emergency preparedness

Carolina Food Storage offers a variety of emergency preparedness supplies including food rotation systems, shelf stable food, emergency supplies and tools. There’s also a very handy article I recommend that you read that explains how much food you should store for emergency preparedness.  You don’t want to find out in an emergency that you don’t have enough food on hand.
