Our September focus is meat, potatoes and earthquake prep. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints sells dehydrated potato flakes which are useful for making rolls, pancakes and mashed potatoes. Each #10 can has a 30-year shelf life. The instant potatoes come in a pouch and have a 1 1/2 year shelf life. They are available for pickup at a Home Storage Center location near you.
Gather small cans of meat which typically have a 3-5 year shelf-life. Find some on sale this month at Utah case lot sales, or Sam’s Club and Costco. Meat tends to be expensive, so watch for sales.
Our emergency goals are earthquake preparation. Check out the handout for some ideas.
