Prepare for long-term and short-term emergencies by stocking up on bulk freeze dried food, first aid supplies and other survival items intended to keep you and your family healthy and safe following a disaster. Freeze dried food is easy to store and weighs less than canned food because the food's moisture content has been removed through rapid freezing. Bug out bags and hiking backpacks can be packed with freeze dried food yet remain lightweight enough to carry over many miles of hiking.

The importance of preparing for any kind of disaster cannot be over emphasized in these unstable and violent times. In addition to an increase in natural disasters occurring in the past ten years, the possibility of economic collapse, war and food shortages constantly looms over the world. Getting prepared and remaining prepared for very plausible catastrophes not only involves building a stockpile of survival supplies but also means understanding that societal changes following a disaster could be dramatic and dangerous.
Expert survivalists realize that food will probably be considered as a form of money after an apocalyptic event. People with large stashes of edible food can use any extra food to barter for necessities that others may have, including transportation and protection services.
Moreover, buying bulk freeze dried food at current prices may also potentially save you thousands of dollars in the event the economy bottoms out and food shortages cause steep increases in food prices. With droughts, floods and temperature extremes predicted to cause the price of groceries to rise by as much as five to 40 percent, having an ample stash of nutritious freeze dried food at your disposal may mean the difference between eating well or going hungry.
