PROJECT: Home Prepping System
The Level 1 “Food” module outlines the bare minimum amount of food for an emergency food supply, which will be 72 hours (3 days) for the Home Prepping System. For this system, the Level 1 food supply should allow you to leave at the spur of a moment for an unexpected a picnic or a 3-day weekend. Rather than have food items that are common in backpacking or bug out bags, the non-perishable food in this module will consist of items that are regular in your home grocery list and eaten all the time. Since the food in this module are items that are actually used, the contents of this module are consistently rotated every quarter of the year to ensure freshness and present preference. Note: Pets will be covered in a separate video/document.
LEVEL 1: 72-hours worth of non-perishable meals. Regular food items that are purchased during your normal grocery shopping. Little to no preparation needed. Only add water or simply heat. Stored in a contain that allows for easy transportation. These are preps that you should actually used. Always be ready to go out for a fun 3-day weekend with the family!
LEVEL 2: One “Pay Cycle” worth of non-perishable food stored in your pantry. This could be 1-week, 2-weeks, or 1-month, , depending on your particular work situation. Expect the unexpected when it comes to your employment and ability to provide food for you and your family. Does not include food presently in the kitchen cabinets or refrigerator. No camping or survival food. Regular food items that are popular in your household. Rotate items into kitchen as needed and restock.
LEVEL 3: Enough food for your worst case emergency situation based on your region. This could be 1-month, 3-months, 6-months or 1-year. Research emergencies that are possible in your region and determine an appropriate amount of emergency food needed for that scenario. This should not be confused with “Homesteading”, so no chicken coops, green houses or hunting needed (especially in an Urban environment). Survival food rations and techniques are recommended for this level to maximize food shelf life.
