Long Term Food Storage Calculator

I remember when I first started getting interested in food storage. I was overwhelmed by the information. What kind of long-term food storage should I get? How much did I need per person? How would I cook it. What were some of those legumes offered? There was so much. Luckily, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has an awesome Family Home Storage program for members and non-members of the church alike.

On its website is a food storage calculator that helps you figure out exactly how much food you need per person. You can find it here. But this is a better one based from the LDS Church's Home Production and Storage manual.

Over the winter months, I'm going to be focusing more on long-term food storage since there isn't an abundant supply of fresh produce to worry about canning. And, now that the holidays are over, a lot of baking supplies go an really good sales. Especially flour and sugar. 

So, if you want to follow along and start stocking up on your food storage, take a look at the food storage calculator so you'll be ready to buy enough when you find a good deal.
