When the San Francisco earthquake of 1989 hit my mother tells me I was in my aunts yard running around as she chased me in a panic. Being a toddler you have no understanding of what a natural disaster is.
Living in California earthquakes are unpredictable but expected to happen. I’ve lived through some that have jolted me out of my sleep and others I didn’t feel at all.
Living life on the edge aka the San Andreas Fault, meant having specific foods being kept in case the “Big One” finally hit.
Here’s a helpful list of items to keep in your pantry in case of an emergency; that could be a natural disaster, personal financial change, or pandemic.
• Peanut Butter
• Whole Wheat Crackers
• Canned Meats/Seafood (Manual Can Opener)
• Dried Fruits
• Canned Fruits
• Canned Vegetables
• Oats & Oatmeal
• Dry Pasta & Pasta Sauce
• Spices & Herbs
• Canned Soups & Stews
• Nuts & Trail Mix
