You can purchase MREs and dehydrated foods for your survival pantry as well, however, these foods will work just as well and have the added bonus of being able to be rotated among the food that you use every day, being used in the event that you have a large group to suddenly cook for, being used by the family in the event that you can't afford to go shopping for an extended period of time, and can be donated to the local food bank when it is time to resupply your pantry.

  1. "and can be donated to the local food bank when it is time to resupply your pantry." If you are doing your food storage as it should be then there will be nothing that needs to be donated as you will be consuming it yourself (or your family will be). If you are donating food because it's getting close to the expiration date (which is only a suggestion and not when the food goes rotten) then you need to re-evaluate your food storage because you are doing it wrong.
