Task 29: Coffee, Jelly Beans, and No Broccoli

images (42)

When I chat to folks about what to have in their preparedness kit, I always mention the importance of trying or being familiar with the items in your emergency kit ahead of time.  Nothing is worse than being in the middle of a disaster and you are looking for the instructions in how to assemble something for your safety, or your stuck eating something from your kit that tastes like cardboard and makes you sick.

We all have items that we like and don’t like when it comes to food items.  President Reagan was well known for his love of jelly beans, and President H.W. Bush was just as well known for his dislike of broccoli.

Having some of those comfort items around during an emergency can make all the difference in the world and keep your mental outlook with a positive focus when you need it most.



2 Pts –  Share with us what your comfort item or food is… How much do you keep on hand?  Do you have enough to get you through 3 days? 7 Days? 10 Days? More??

Bonus:  What type of shelf life does your comfort item have?  Can and do you keep alternative versions of your favorite available?
