The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints directed the release in April 2007 of a pamphlet on food storage titled "All Is Safely Gathered In: Family Home Storage" The counsel they have given is to obtain a three-month supply of food that is part of your normal diet, store drinking water, have a financial reserve and store a year's supply of foods that will store for extended periods. The following is a guide to obtaining a three-month supply of foods in your normal diet.
