Why Should I Store Food?

Long term, emergency food storage

You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist or doomsday believer to know that food storage is a smart idea. After all, food is the second most basic human need after potable water. And since most of us aren’t farmers anymore — that is, we don’t have the tools, knowledge, or the space to grow food — we need to make sure we have a sure source of food in case of an emergency.

Here are a few other reasons you might want to keep a supply of food.

  1. Inflation: From the Great Depression to the Great Recession, we know that our economy is not always stable. What if our economy were to take such a dive that it took hundreds or thousands of dollars to buy a loaf of bread? This has happened before in Hungary, China, Germany, and many other countries. Wouldn’t it be better to buy some extra food at a reasonable price now and save it for a time of need?

  2. Food Quality: Year after year, the food industry continues to modify foods to yield more food that looks better at the supermarket; meanwhile, proper nutrition all but disappears. Plus, imported food from countries with no safety standards for insecticides, fertilizers, bacterial and chemical contamination have entered our country’s foods and have proven to be very dangerous. eFoods supplies safe, nutritious, long-term food you can trust.

  3. Natural Disasters: Depending on where you live, there are different natural disasters threatening to impose destruction at any time. Floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, wildfires, blizzards — you name it. You don’t want to wait until one of these is at your door to make sure you have food available.

  4. Power Outages: You never know when a power outage will happen. Usually power is restored within minutes or hours, but depending on the situation, it could take days, weeks, or even longer to restore power. In times like these, those who are unprepared may be out in hordes stealing from local food stores. Make sure you’re prepared with enough food and water to feed the family without having to leave the safety of your own home.

  5. Job Loss: No one wants to think about hard times ahead, but the fact is unemployment is only a simple step away. That means a time of little to no income, and with high housing costs, the increasing cost of food, plus taking care of a family and paying bills, the last thing you want to worry about is how you’re going to afford food for your kids. Buying food storage before a hard time will be a solace during a time of unemployment.

  6. Saving Time: Prepping food takes a lot of time. Plus, there are so many dishes and messes made in the process! With eFoods, you’ll get pre-packaged meals that only need hot water to become delicious meals. They’re perfect for those days you’re in a time crunch!

  7. Self-Reliance: If you’re like many Americans, you have the spirit of independence aflame in your heart. Don’t you think this independence should translate over to food preparation as well? Can you imagine being forced to go to your parents, neighbors, or government to provide food for you when you’re in a pinch? Besides, depending on the situation, these sources might not even have the means to help in the first place!

As you can clearly see, food storage will always be a smart idea. Even if you start out small, like with a simple 1-Month kit, you’re making a big difference for a time of emergency, which will inevitably bring you peace of mind. Be a hero to yourself and your family! Order eFoods today.
