Low cost long term storage foods from Latter Day Saints/Mormon food storage centers
Since 2014 I have been buying long-term storage food in #10 cans from a local Latter Day Saints Food Storage Center. (Nearly all the food is good for 30 years when stored properly. Only a few items have a lower shelf life: flour and carrots, 10 year shelf life; powdered milk, 20 year shelf life.) There are about 100 locations nationwide. You do not have to be a member of the Mormon church to purchase–everyone is graciously welcomed to purchase long term food at a greatly reduced cost. These goods may also be purchased online with about $5-$10 per case shipping if you do not have a Food Storage Center in your area. This link has prices effective 1/1/2023 for both local Centers and online ordering. The prices are for a CASE of 6 each #10 cans.
This is a superb opportunity to purchase long term food (generally 30 years), in #10 cans. Today I went to purchase non-fat milk in pouches (currently only available in Centers, not online). The cost was roughly half to a quarter of most survival food companies prices for the same quantity.
I am not a member of the LDS church, however, I have always been welcomed by the volunteers who staff the Centers and the only thing they ask is that you tell others about the opportunity to be self-reliant with food storage. These Centers do not make a profit, and are run by volunteers.
If you already have experience with purchasing food from an LDS Food Storage Center; chime in! If you have any questions, ask me and I’ll get back to you on this thread. Bon Appetit
