Short Term Food for the Survival Kit – A List of Emergency Foods

A list of emergency foods is one of the most important categories in my quest to build a survival kit.

Here is the list I made for my short term food

  • Matches
  • Water Purification Tablets
  • Salt
  • Water Filter
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Spices
  • 14 days of freeze dried meals for each person in my family.

Now, I was faced with a challenge of how to assemble the most complex part, 14 days of food per person. I have four people in my family – me, my wife and two daughters.

Without a good and quick food supply, this survival kit would not get built.

Just to make sure that I didn’t get caught short on some unknown emergency survival item, once again, I checked what I was doing against some commercially available (and not so available) survival kits.  This time I looked at the altoid tin survival kit – not generally for sale and probably shouldn’t be, and the wisdom emergency survival kit – something I found very valuable and interesting.
