Top 10 Foods to Hoard for "The End of the World as We Know It"


Preppers take steps to prepare for everyday challenges, as well as the possibility of a devastating apocalyptic event that could catapult our world back to the late 1800s. No power, no natural gas, no running water, no sewer, and no well-stocked grocery store around the corner.

What are the most valuable foods to hoard for an apocalyptic event, when the world as we know it comes to an end? A substantial stash of basic high-calorie grains, legumes, and dried vegetables, along with a few basic staples that are difficult to produce at home, may prove highly valuable during an extended grid-down or other survival events.

In this video, we share our top 10 picks for foods to store to prepare for incredibly challenging times. The top 10 list includes:

1. Grains
2. Beans and Legumes
3. Potato flakes
4. Dehydrated vegetables
5. White sugar
6. Honey
7. Salt
8. Baking soda
9. Vinegar
10. Ascorbic acid

Oils and fats are also important but they will go rancid and are not long term storage items. Make sure to store them with your short term storage items.
