Food Storage

What is the difference between freeze dried and dehydrated?  Why choose one or the other.  How much food should you store?  How long will in last (here in AZ)?

We will have a vendor guest with samples.

    If anyone is interested, I was just at Honeyville and their water storage units are on sale. I just picked up the 30 gal corner unit for about $60

    Good meeting. We have been Thive Q club members for over a year now. We enjoy their products, just need to cycle more into the weekly menu.

    A couple of people asked about a local store that carried the Survival Cave meats. Gear Up at 10953 N Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd in Scottsdale. It's 2 blocks north of Shea. [masked]-4945. This is a small shop, so I'd suggest calling to check their inventory first.

    I was very impressed with the Thrive Products, but also the survival rations. I was most impressed with those oxygen removers and bread in a jar!

    It was very nice to meet you all...for the whole of the 15 minutes I was there. I am sorry that I did not get to spend more time at the meeting, my daughter decided it was play time and I did not wish to disrespect the speaker.

    Regarding the Thrive product, I was on their website tonight. I did not get the chance to test the product itself, but I'm sure it's wonderful. However, for those of you who do not have the excess funds for one of the storage systems, and IF you have some rudimentary carpentry skills, I found this DIY food rotation how-to. True, I have no idea if the dimensions would accommodate Thrive packaging, but I'm sure that with some math alteration one could make it work. Enjoy! :)

    Provided it's permitted, I would like to bring my 15 month old daughter. She and I are still attached at the hip.
