Freeze dried food pouches are the best option for long term emergency food preparation. We at Survival Kit Guide like Mountain House’s offering and suggest that you take a few moments to address your stash. Mountain House offers several packages depending on the volume of freeze dried food you and your family will require.
Just remember that buying the food doesn’t mean you’re finished; you’ll need water and a way to boil it in order to make your emergency meals.
