Ezra Taft Benson

It's important to remember all of your family needs. 

Some in your family may have allergies or sensitivities. There might be foods your family doesn't like. Do you know how to cook these foods?

There is no reason to store certain foods if your family has sensitivities or your family does not like what you have. Be mindful of your family needs when acquiring your food storage and use this as your base to build upon.

Questions To ask when purchasing foods...

If I store THIS.....

What meals do we like the most?

What can I make with it?

What do I want to add?

What do I need to cook with it?

How much do we need?
