Emergency preparedness stockpile grocery list

Every American should have at least a three-day supply of food and water stored in their home, with at least one gallon of water per person per day. If you have the space, experts recommend a week’s supply of food and water. Choose foods that don’t require refrigeration and are not high in salt. Your stockpile should also contain flashlights, a radio, manual can opener, batteries and copies of important documents. Depending on your family’s needs, you may also need medical supplies, pet food, contact lens solution or diapers.

If it’s too expensive for you to buy every- thing for your stockpile at once, pick up one or two items every time you go to the grocery store. Stock up on canned vegetables or bat- teries when there is a sale. Bulk “club” stores can also help you save money on your sup- plies, especially if you split a case with a friend, co-worker or neighbor, who can serve as your “preparedness buddy.”
