What Is A Prepper Pantry and Should You Have One?

A Prepper Pantry is the backbone of the prepper life. It is essentially just like your normal pantry, but more well thought out and made to last. It is the place where you store all the food you need in the event of a disaster that may keep you from being able to live normally. These foods would be shelf-stable for long periods of time; like dry rice and beans, canned goods, dehydrated or freeze-dried foods, etc. Having all of these types of foods stored up can help you through several different types of emergencies.

In light of the recent changes and COVID-19 pandemic, I thought this would be a good time to help share some information about a prepper pantry. Please note that this does NOT mean to go clear out shelves from your local grocery store. You can accomplish filling a pantry without making others go without. So, that being said, let’s learn how to properly accomplish this! PLUS – grab our free printable emergency plan below!

Who can benefit from building a prepper pantry?

Absolutely anyone can benefit from creating their very own prepper pantry. You never know what could happen; and if you live in a particularly high risk or turbulent area, you will definitely not regret stocking one up. Prepper pantries are perfect for anyone that wants to be prepared for getting themselves and their family through a potential catastrophe. This is especially true if you have a large family with children or more elderly family members. You will want to make sure any dietary restrictions are met, as well as having foods any picky little ones will eat enough of. It is always a good idea to stock up on non-perishable foods that are also enjoyed by you and your family. It is not necessary to only prepare with MREs and bland calories. You can be creative with your shopping, as long as you make sure to have the supplies needing to prepare the things you get!
