Stock up freeze dried vegetables for the prepper's pantry!
Eat your veggies! Your mama's words are still ringing in your
head to eat your vegetables and nothing could be more
important during crisis. Vegtables will provide your family with
antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Be sure to stock the prepper's pantry with vegetables that are
canned, dehydrated and freeze dried. These are the survival
foods with a long shelf life, and in that order. Canned foods will
last 2-3 years, dehydrated foods 10-20 years and freeze dried
foods 25-30 years. Be sure to read our
prepper's pantry list and
consider these vegetables for your long-term larder.

Veggies in the Prepper's Pantry
Meal planning is a survival skill! As the family dietitian your
goal is to ensure the emergency meals you prepare will have
the essential nutrients and fiber to sustain you for a long term

It's time to add more vegetables to your prepper's pantry.

  • Canned vegetables. You'll find canned vegetables at
    significant savings at the dollar stores. Another good way
    to stock up on canned veggies is at Costco or when they go
    on sale at your favorite grocery store. Remember to rotate
    your vegetables and only store what you eat. Look for
    canned tomato paste and stewed tomatoes if you want
    Italian food storage.

  • Dehydrated vegetables. Dehydrated vegetables have a
    long shelf life, though not as long as freeze dried
    vegetables. Harmony House Vegetable Soup, pictured right,
    is 1 gallon of dried vegetable soup mix that yields 96 cups
    of soup when reconstituted. Dehydrated vegetables
    maintain their high nutritive value with less nutrients lost.

  • Freeze dried vegetables. Freeze dried vegetables provide
    the answer to your long term food storage needs. Freeze
    dried vegetables have up to a 25-30 year shelf life. One of
    the best kinds of freeze dried veggies to store is broccoli
    florets because they are ideal for adding to your pasta
