Press Release:
According to the Department of Homeland Security, survival awareness is at an all-time high.
Preparedness expert Angela Paskett’s new book Food Storage for Self-Sufficiency and Survival gives its
readers the resources they need to join the preparedness movement and kick start a practical,
affordable food storage plan for a range of timelines and emergencies—from three-day ice storms to six
months of unemployment.
Food Storage for Self-Sufficiency and Survival changes the conversation about food storage by educating
readers on techniques for storing the foods that families regularly eat and enjoy. Paskett takes care to
go beyond generic dehydrated meals and MREs with a ten-year shelf life to offer customizable options
to assure a family’s self-sufficiency year-round. It is a guide to understanding various food storage
options and implementing food storage plans that will work for 72-hour emergencies as well as shortterm
setbacks of two to three months and traditional long term survival.
Checklists, worksheets and menu plans found throughout the book take the guesswork out of planning,
purchasing, packaging and organizing for food storage. Readers will also find practical guidelines for
using the food they store even in non-emergency times, ensuring that nothing goes to waste. Food
Storage for Self-Sufficiency and Survival details instructions for dehydrating, canning and packaging
these favorites, allowing readers to save money and introduce variety to food stocks. In addition to a
bevy of information on traditional food storage methods, Paskett also details best practices for
sustainable food methods such as gardening, livestock, hunting and foraging wild edibles.
Diversify your idea of food storage by picking up a copy of Food Storage for Self-Sufficiency and Survival
by Angela Paskett. The book is available online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and bookstores nationwide.
