Quick and Easy Food Storage

Food storage comes in all different shapes and sizes. You have your staple foods like grains and beans, and your freeze dried foods like fruits and vegetables or even meats and cheeses. And then you have a wide range of freeze dried meals.

There are so many different options and it is hard to know what to buy, how much to buy, or even how to buy it. But luckily, the Ready Store has a few simple ways for you to get all the food you need, including food supply kits that provide you with a variety of options.

Pick and Choose

If you want to go through and pick your own individual cans of food to store, you can use the ReadyCalculator to determine how many cans of food you need based on the number of people in your family and how large of a supply you want.

This tool will calculate the amount of staple items you need, the freeze dried items you need, or a mix of both types of food. Once you know the number, you can go through the types of food storage you need and pick out your own fruits, veggies, and meals specific to your own needs.

Supply Kits

ClassicPrep. This is a supply kit that provides you with #10 cans of staple items that include everything from grains and sugar to milk and butter. This kit covers all of the food storage basics and packages them into 3-, 6-, and 12-month supplies that range in price from $200 to $1600. It is the perfect kit to cover all of your basics.

ReadyPrep. ReadyPrep is the opposite of ClassicPrep in that it covers you in the dehydrated fruits, vegetables, and meals department. Again, this kit is packaged in 3-, 6-, and 12- month supply quantities ranging in price from $1,000 to $6,000.

You are provided with a variety of meal options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in #10 cans for easy storage. Along with meals you also have multiple fruit, vegetable, and meat options to add to your meals or make your own.

FlexPrep. This kit is a combination of the previous two kits. FlexPrep includes both staple foods like grains and dehydrated fruits, vegetables, and meals. This kit has got you covered in all of the food storage areas. Kits come in 3-, 6-, and 12-month supplies at a price of $500 to $3,000.

If you’re looking for a mix of dehydrated meals and classic food storage items, this kit is a great option. You can have complete meals while still having the basics to use in your everyday cooking.

EasyPrep. As implied by its name, EasyPrep is the easy way to buy and store your food to be ready for anything. One bucket of food provides one person with food for one month. Just take the number of family members you have, buy that many buckets, and your family is set for a month! They are also packaged into 3-, 6-, and 12-month supplies for easy purchase. Prices range from $70 to $4,000 depending on the type of food and supply amount you buy.

EasyPrep has many different types of buckets, including meal buckets, fruit and vegetable buckets, dessert buckets, and drink buckets. You can easily buy a month’s supply of any type of food you’re looking for. The food is kept in metalized pouches within the buckets.. Simply add water to the pouch and your meal is ready to eat.

These food supply kits make food storage easy and convenient to purchase and store, as well as figure out how much you need for you and your family. Whether you want to choose individual items yourself or pick a supply kit for the amount you want to store, you can easily start your food storage or add to it, helping you to be ready for anything.

    What is the serving size for each packet?

      Hi Amy,

      I'm on the marketing team here at the Ready Store. Serving sizes will depend on the type of food in the packet, but generally, a serving size for entree meals is 1 cup dry and contain 4 servings. Fruits and vegetables are usually 1/2 cup dry and contain 6 servings . We sell the packets individually, you can look at the product page and see each type of food and it's serving size by following this link: http://www.thereadystore.com/food-storage/product-series/easyprep

      I hope this helped answer your question!

    I am new to this, and when I look at your EasyPrep buckets, it appears that meal pouches typically have 8+ servings per meal. What is the thinking for how remaining servings are to be stored when using this in emergency circumstances if only one or 2 family members (per meal) are using this meal bucket? Do you have 1- 2 serving meal pouch version?

      Hello Bob! That is a great question. The EasyPrep meal pouches come with a resealable zip top which makes it easy to reuse in the future. The mylar pouch that the food is stored in will stay fresh for 6 - 12 months. This makes it perfect for smaller families!
