Food Storage and Preservation

There are plenty of scenarios that could leave you and your family going hungry. If you weren't sure about the need for a multi-week food supply in your home, the recent pandemic might have you thinking a little more clearly.  

It's YOUR responsiblity to take care of yourself and your family. Let's get real. Food storage won't pay your mortgage and knowing how to make jerky won't keep you from catching a deadly virus; but these skills can save you some money and they WILL help you to feed your loved ones in a crisis.

So how do you begin? Storing food properly can be a challange, and making mistakes in food storage can be an expensive waste of food!

We'll walk you through all of the details and help you build a personal plan. We'll even show you how to preserve your own food. In this class, you'll gain the skills to:

  • Package ordinary staple foods to last for more than 30 years
  • How to eat well on less than $3 per day
  • Use water bath canning to save acidic foods
  • Dehydrate fruits and vegatables, with and without power
  • Make delicious jerky 
  • Build your own personal food security plan, an edible insurance policy!


Our next class dates are Friday, May 3rd, 2024 and Friday, September 6th, 2024, and October 10th, 2024 - each running from 9am to 4 pm. This class will be held rain or shine, at our Stafford Virginia camp. Detailed directions sent upon registry.
