The Ultimate Stock Your Pantry List for an Emergency

It’s not a normal Friday. Schools are closing, every other email is a cancellation, and social media is buzzing with images of empty grocery store shelves. We’re all struggling to adapt to this chaos, maintain our health, and prepare ourselves.

Meal planning has always given me calm and control in moments when I feel overwhelmed, and again I find myself turning to preparing food as my comfort zone.

A Guide to Stocking Your Pantry for Emergencies

We’ve put together a guide to stocking your pantry with a 2-month emergency food supply. This is simply a jumping off point for your family.  Use it as a guide and customize as needed. If your local stores are missing some of these items, we can recommend ordering through Thrive Market.
