So what's to eat?...for the next 3 days or more...

The most common suggestion for food supplies to have on hand after an emergency event is " non perishable food for the first 72 hours", when you can't or won't be able to get to the food store (or possibly anywhere else...) to replenish the larder for a while. Rice, beans, honey, peanut butter and dried fruit might get boring, but they are certainly all long lasting (if preserved propertly) and more appealing perhaps than a can of something so old you can't read the best before date, or even know what is in the can.....

In this area we are lucky to be able to grow a lot of our own food, and preserve it, so  some people have at least 3 days worth . Survival Acres offers lots of  good info on food preservation and stockpiling (etc), and a little more closely tied to the lifestyle here in the West Kootenays, Kitchen Stewardship also has good advice for preservation and storage techniques.
