Food storage is a major consideration when you are building your survival food stockpile.
You do not want to have to rotate your stock every few months and if you do it that way, it is a guarantee that when you need your stockpile, it will have stuff that has outlived its shelf-life.
That said, you also want to stock up on foods that taste somewhat better than wet cardboard, can be used in a variety of ways and will meet your dietary needs but still provide something relatively fun to eat.
Oh, you also do not want to break the bank!
On the following page, we cover the staples that meet all that criteria and can be relied upon to last a very long time if stored properly.
