List of Lists - Food Storage.

This part of the list goes hand in hand with the previous part I detailed, "food preparation", for obvious reasons. Having what is called a "deep larder" will allow you to sustain your group until a more permanent source of food (hunting, fishing gardening, foraging) can be established.

- MREs
- Peanut butter
- Roasted coffee beans
- Complete set of canning supplies
- Aluminum foil
- Iodized salt
- Non-iodized salt
- Pepper
- Hot sauce
- Various spices
- Rice
- Wheat
- Corn
- Oats
- Beans
- Potatos
- Powdered eggs
- Powdered milk
- Powdered butter
- Canned beans, fruits, vegetables, meats & soups
- Honey
- White sugar
- Brown sugar
- Syrup
- Jams, jellies & preserves
- Salad dressings
- Ketchup
- Mustard
- Barbecue sauce
- Mayonnaise
- Syrup
- Soy sauce
- Coffee
- Vinegar
- Baking soda
- Cooking oils
- Ramen noodles

Obviously, certain items on this list can't be stored in large amounts for long periods of time. For instance, potatoes will go bad. However, always having a bag of potatoes on hand will allow you to easily begin growing them yourself, so long as the potatoes have "eyes" on them. Some of the items on the list aren't necessarily there for nutrition, but can store for a long time and are extremely quick and easy to prepare when you simply need to get something in your stomach. One example is the Ramen noodles.

It's important to learn about gardening, as the food in your storage supply is finite.
