After an apocalypse on either a minor or major scale, food is going to be scarce. As humans, we tend to automatically jump to thinking about where our next meal is coming from. While we may be able to technically live several days without eating, nobody is really excited about that idea. Food is comforting. It gives you strength and it keeps your body healthy. You need food so it is pretty normal to think about what you will eat after some calamity befalls us and people have looted the store shelves.
You have several options.
This is probably the most obvious option. It ensures you are set up and don’t have to go out hunting for food right away. Storing nonperishable foods that include a variety of freeze-dried, dried and canned goods will ensure your food supply will last for months or longer. If you are dealing with a serious apocalypse, you will eventually run out of food, which leads us to the next options.
Grow a Garden
A garden will feed you somewhat and that is assuming it is the right season. Many preppers have greenhouses so they have a fresh supply of fruits and vegetables all year round. It is something you should definitely consider.
Another thing preppers like to do is raise their own food. Things like rabbits, pigs, chickens and even goats do not require a great deal of space and are fairly easy to raise. Learning animal husbandry that ensures you have a steady supply of food is a very wise idea.
This is what many people assume they will be doing a lot of. Hunting will get food on the table, but how often you hunt and how often you actually get something will make a huge difference. You will want to brush up on your hunting skills so you know how to do it when your very life depends on it.
This is probably one of the last things anybody thinks about when they think about eating after a collapse. Believe it or not, foraging will be one of the easiest and best shots at eating if you don’t have a stockpile of food. Learn about edible plants now so you have something to eat immediately after a collapse.
