Buckets of Emergency Food
Supersize your food storage with buckets of food

What's in a prepper's pantry? Variety! Indeed variety is key. Once
preppers have stored enough canned foods, it's time to supersize
to emergency buckets of food and #10 cans of freeze dried foods!
Most shelf-stable foods have a three-year shelf life, so eventually
preppers realize that it's time to start rotating food supplies and
to invest in long term bulk food in buckets and pails. The prepper
food supply, includes rice and other grains, beans and legumes,
dehydrated vegetables, sugar, powdered milk and even ready
made meals.

Your emergency food storage plan should eventually include 11
kinds of buckets:
  1. Buckets of rice (brown rice and long grain white rice)
  2. Buckets of Beans and Legumes (Pinto, black turtle beans and
  3. Buckets of Oats (rolled oats and quick oats)
  4. Bucket of cornmeal
  5. Buckets of Pasta (pictured right is a bucket of elbow
    macaroni that lasts 25 years)
  6. Buckets of Milk and Buckets of Whey Milk
  7. Buckets of Sugar
  8. Buckets of hard red wheat (and a grinder)
  9. Bucket of vegetables (vegetable stew, split peas, green
    beans, etc.)
  10. Buckets of fruit (freeze dried strawberries, or a variety pack
    to enhance breakfast cereals)

  • Thrive Milk Bucket. The Happy Prepper favorite product from
    Thrive is their bucket of milk, which includes 648 servings of
    milk. Got milk in your preps? Having milk in emergency food
    buckets is an absolute necessity if you have children.

  • Wise Foods Company. A sponsor of Doomsday Preppers, the
    emergency food buckets from Wise Foods often include
    textured vegetable proteins, which Happy Preppers like to
    avoid. Variety is the spice of life, and they do offer
    something good: freeze dried snacks and side dishes. The
    wisest choice of buckets from Wise Foods include the freeze
    dried fruits or veggies pictured left. Be aware, however, that
    freeze dried fruits and vegetables do get powdery and may
    settle in transit. On a positive note, the foods are
    inexpensive. On the flip side, they don't get good reviews on

How to store your own emergency food
Bag your own sugar, white rice, beans, legumes, and other dried
goods into mylar with oxygen absorbers, then seal them and
secure them for long term storage into your own food grade
buckets and pails. Selecting food grade buckets is important as
other buckets leach toxic chemicals during storage. Never store
foods in a used bucket as it may have contained toxic substances
as well.

Some foods do not store for the long run. Unfortunately, brown
rice does not have a good shelf life, for example, and either does
flour or egg noodles. If you love brown rice, then you can stock
up, but beware that sealed it could last up to 7 years, and not a
full 20 or 25 years. Right is a long grain brown rice packed by
Auguson Farms, a trusted provider of emergency food buckets and
pails. Instead of buying flour, you'll want to buy hard white wheat
and a grain mill, pictured below. Also, some foods do not do well
with oxygen absorbers: brown sugar for example, will get hard
with an oxygen absorber.

Remember your Gamma seal lid (for most bucket types - excludes
Wise Foods and Mountain House) and bucket opener! Without a
bucket opener you'll find it extremely difficult to open your stored
goods. If you have more than a dozen food storage buckets, you
deserve the Champion Lid Lifter, pictured immediate right! The
Champion Lid Lifter is made of aluminum, so you can also use
this tool also to shut off the gas main of your house! It's
made in

So what's in your emergency food bucket?
Whatever emergency food pail you choose, let us know! We'd love

Happy endings...
A bucket of food that you never use is better than a bucket of
food you'd wish you had.
