Stock up on food for long-term storage with buckets

Supersize your prepper's pantry with food buckets.
If you're new to prepping, there are buckets of emergency food to
stockpile to quickly get up to speed in prepping. Advanced
preppers will especially want to stock up on buckets of staples,
like cereals and grains, and ready-to-eat freeze dried meals for a
well stocked
prepper's pantry?.

Buckets of Emergency Food
We've gathered our favorite emergency food pails and buckets, a
variety of selections from Augason Farms, Thrive, Food Supply
and Wise Foods:

Variety is key to a well planned long-term food storage system.
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)

#6: Mountain House Buckets.
The leader in freeze dried foods for backpackers and outdoor
Mountain House emergency food buckets pack the
goodness of best selling backpacking foods into convenient
buckets. The Mountain House Just in Case emergency food pail
includes 12 pouches per bucket for a total of 29 gourmet meals.
You get 2 Beef Stroganoff, 2 Chicken Teriyaki, 2 Beef Stew, 2
Lasagna with meat, 2 Noodles and Chicken, and 2 Granola with
Blueberries. The shelf life (if stored properly) is 25 years. Mind
you, these are hearty meals, not just survival food!

#7: Saratoga Farms.
Saratoga Farms offers a wide array of foods, including meals,
cereals and staples.

#8: 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 Amazon.

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. Emergency food kits and buckets are as
convenient as they are practical.
