Grab & Go Buckets
Grab & Go Buckets
Mountain House freeze dried foods are often sold in three formats, individual pouches, #10 cans, and Grab and Go Buckets. While each type of packaging has distinct advantages, Just in Case buckets are some of the most versatile. Grab and Go buckets of freeze dried food generally consist of a 5 gallon plastic bucket filled with individual pouches of freeze dried foods. The companies that make our freeze dried food buckets are: Mountain House, Wise Foods, and Survival Cave. We have found these three companies to provide great quality freeze dried foods.
Mountain House Buckets are easy to stack and store.
Grab and Go buckets offer some of the best and most efficient storage. Freeze dried food buckets can be safely stacked on their own. Buckets are durable and can take a bit of a beating. Should there be a disaster like an earthquake and your food storage area is effected, buckets can topple and fall and the freeze dried food pouches within will be undamaged.
Buckets are easy to "Grab and Go".
Freeze dried food buckets have handles and are very easy to grab and go even in an emergency situation. While it would not be feasible to carry multiple buckets by hand to a distant location, grab & buckets of freeze dried foods can easily be transported by car, sled, wagon, or wheelbarrow if you need to evacuate or move with your survival food supply.
Reduce waste and prevent menu fatigue.
Inside each grab and go bucket are a number of individual pouches of Mountain House freeze dried food. This means that the pouches can be opened one at a time in whatever order you prefer without compromising the shelf life of the other pouches. Menu fatigue is a real problem if the same freeze dried meals must be eaten repeatedly in order to reduce loss from bulk containers. With individual pouches this is never an issue.
Buckets are useful once the food has been used.
5 gallon buckets are ALWAYS useful in a survival situation. Buckets can be used as seating, to carry water, to dig, to move just about anything that fits inside, as a stool to reach things up high, and about a million other uses. Storing grab and go buckets of freeze dried food provides you with this useful survival tool killing two birds with one stone.
