Natural disasters are a fact of life. Mother Nature sends hurricanes, snowstorms, and other challenges our way, which can blow out power lines, sometimes for weeks. Emergency food storage containers allow you to put aside water and some food essentials to keep your family going until the power comes back. Containers are designed for just water, just food, or both. They’re made of plastic that won’t leach chemicals into food or water. Heavy-duty ones can store large amounts, such as 30 lbs., while others are meant for hiking or camping and store less. Some emergency food storage containers actually come with meals that can last for 20 or more years and only require you to add water.
