Ark Preparation


 
"The revelation to produce and store food may be as essential to our temporal welfare today as boarding the ark was to the people in the days of Noah."
--President Ezra Taft Benson, October 1987


ARK PACKING SUGGESTIONS
1. Go to www.lds.org
2. Click on "Provident Living"
3. Click on "Food Storage and Preparedness"
4. Storing Food is an important part of becoming self-reliant. Help your family become self-reliant by beginning or improving your own storage.

WHY FOOD STORAGE?
Provident living -- enjoying the present while providing for the future -- is the opposite of crisis management.

WHAT TO STORE?
BASIC STORAGE - "Life sustaining foods and non-food items that will store for long periods of time."

EXPANDED STORAGE - "Includes foods and other daily essentials to supply total nutritional needs and allow for variety and personal preferences. These foods should be used and replaced regularly."

What else would YOU want to eat? ...STORE IT!


HOW TO STORE

Location - cool, dark, dry, up off floors, pest free
Rotation - date items, use oldest first, before food goes bad - use it, share it or donate it
Inventory - update a written list, replace what you use, check for spoilage, remove bulging cans, insects
Containers - #10 cans, plastic buckets, foil pouches, original containers, glass jars

USING FOOD STORAGE - Basic Recipes
Egg Substitute Recipe (use in place of one egg)
Combine 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin with 3 tablespoons cold water and 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon boiling water. Set aside for a few minutes while it gels. Then use in recipe. (cookie/cake/etc.)


(the "Ark picture" was an idea, by Sis Alisa, and itt includes monthly goals in the areas of obtaining a one-year supply, three-month supply, emergency preparedness, inventory and evaluation, and monthly safety tasks).
Thanks, all!
