How to make a bucket of emergency food

No one wants to think about bad case scenarios, but in fact, be prepared and ready for those worst case scenarios will relieve your mind and empower you to take anything that can come your way.

By creating a bucket of emergency food, you are taking control of your future for having some food security.

What is an emergency food bucket?

Essentially, it is a bucket of 5 gallons full of food to last you and your family for anywhere from 24 hours to 72 hours. The idea is that this bucket is ready to go in case you need to leave your home. It’s a little extra food that you can grab and dump the vehicle while evacuating your home.

You can also use this emergency food bucket for domestic purposes. If an emergency occurs, you are more than welcome to use the content of this bucket. It is there for your emergency needs, which even includes job loss.

It could also be a good idea as a gift for friends who want to help you prepare. This is a great introduction in preparation. They have a little food they can trust for any disaster.

For whatever you need the food, it’s there.

I’ll say, I highly recommend getting a gamma lid for your emergency food buckets so they are easy to open and close without any discomfort of a typical paint bucket lid.

What kind of food is inside a bucket of emergency food?

You can place any type of food within you would like and can last for any time you want, or however much fits. You can place canned foods, ready to eat food like snacks or boat rations, Freeze dry foodsMREs, even your own house dehydrated. They can be placed in mile or empty sealed for an even longer shelf life.

I would suggest putting a variety of food inside to meet the needs of breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack for the whole family.

How many emergency buckets do I need?

This depends entirely on you, your budget, your family size, what you’re evacuating and how long you might be out. You may want a couple of cubes and it’s perfectly fine, too.

Where should I keep this bucket?

This can be stored near your fault bags, in a closet near the front door or anywhere else that would be easily accessible to grab and go when needed.

How should I invent?

Write the contents of the cube and record the outside. Turn as necessary.

Don’t forget the water!

Cubes are not an ideal storage for water, so try to keep a case or a few gallons of water next to the bucket so you can remember to take the water in addition to the food. You must have enough water to cover any dry or dehydrated meals freeze, as well as general beverage purposes.

You may, however, want to place a small water purification device within the food bucket, or one of your fault bags or your vehicle, depending on your emergency disaster plans.

Have fun!

Make this bucket fit you and your domestic food needs. It should include foods that you and your family eat regularly. We don’t want to hit everyone with MRE chili when nobody usually eats chili. An emergency is not the time to change diets around the world, it is a time to make sure everyone is properly cared for.

Have fun with it, involve the whole family and stay prepared!
