If a natural disaster strikes --- earthquake, volcanic eruption, floods, cyclone, bushfire, etc. --- the only thing you can pretty much guarantee is you will be on your own for at least the first few weeks after the event and possibly much longer. Especially in a large scale event, there will be thousands of households just like yours waiting for disaster relief efforts to get rolling. With these
food buckets, you have enough food to be able to feed
your family while you're waiting for help to arrive or while you figure out your next steps.
To make meals for your family, all you need do
is boil some water and add it to the contents of a 4-serve pouch. You can also
use cold water if that's all you have available --- it will still work fine. The
buckets contains a mix of 10 different mains meals sealed in 4-serve mylar pouches. All the food in these
buckets are freeze-dried or dehydrated --- so with the addition of water, the food will completely reconstitute itself. Within ten minutes, the food will regain its original flavour, shape, colour and texture.
Even more importantly, the food will retain its original nutritional value as well. While the ease of preparing the food is important, the significant benefit of these
buckets are they have an incredibly long shelf life of up to 25 years. That means you can put it in a cupboard at home in 2017 and you will still be able to use it if anything happens before 2042. As long as you store the buckets somewhere which is cool and dry, you're all set to enjoy great tasting food at any time you need it in the next 25 years. Store it and forget it --- until you need it.
That's why we suggest every home in New Zealand should have
emergency food sitting in a cupboard somewhere.
