Our NINTH month’s lesson focuses on pre-disaster preparations for hurricanes/flooding evacuation, survival and recovery. Grab that 72 hour kit and take it with you. Do you have an evacuation plan and know two ways to get there? If you ride it out, how do you prepare?

Our first aid topic covers pandemic and flu preparations, enduring and recovery.

The non-food items to acquire are vitamins/pain relievers and candles. We will review storage techniques and shelf life.

How can you keep warm if the power generating electricity goes off in your neighborhood? Individual privacy may need to be sacrificed to keep everyone warm.

We are continuing to collect recipes to prepare using food storage items. What are some of your favorites? You can send your recipes to editor@sunoven.com

Speaking of food storage, how can we preserve citrus fruit in order to enjoy them longer?
