Food Storage – Weekly Accumulation Schedule

I do believe this was referenced to during the evening session of Stake Conference a few weeks ago… Thank you to Rebecca for emailing this to me!

This is a suggested schedule for accumulating a basic food storage. Just some ideas – make it fit your family. If one of the items is on sale one week, or you have a coupon to help cut your cost, obviously you would purchase the necessary amount at that time rather than on the “scheduled week.” Purchase the items listed per member of your family. Example: 3 cans of corn X 4 family members = 12 cans of corn. If your family does not eat a certain product then substitute for one that they will eat. Some of the items do not have amounts so buy what you can. If you continue with this each year and rotate items – you will accumulate a nice storage.
