Have any of you purchased survival rations from the LDS Cannery? If so, what did you purchase, and what was your experience?

First off, welcome aboard!

Second, take a little time to skim the different Forums. Just about anything you can ask has been pretty well covered. Not saying that the well experienced here wouldn't help out a noob, but do some poking around on your own for a while to see what a rich resource you've come across.

I'm thinking "Home Storage Center", which used to be LDS Cannery?

They are fantastic to work with. The hot chocolate is great! 🙂

They have great prices and good quality. I built up a year's basics of their food. The powdered milk, like most powdered milk is not good, but I have it. I use it in cooking, so the nasty taste is lost. I do prefer boxed UHT milk for $1 for a quart from Dollar Tree, but it doesn't have near the shelf life.

Read through the many threads in this forum. You could busy for years. Or you could do a search to find the topics you are interested in.

I had bought several items from the cannery, when I was married to a LDS member. She wasn't in to it but went along the one time we went to a canning night for our(her) ward. The food is good, just need to remember you have to re-hydrate it before cooking with it, meaning the soup or stew or chili needs to simmer on the stove long enought to soften up the dehydrated bits.
The price is right, the quality is good. I am not a member of the LDS church but it is a good resource.

I have been to the local LDS food depot a number of times over the years. I have not been there in the last few years. The food is good and the cost is reasonable. They were very nice and helpful even for a non LDS like myself.

If you have never set foot in one? Research if one is in your area.

Good people, products & prices.

Itís dangerous to be right, when the government is wrong. The price of freedom can be seen at your local VA hospital.

We have. As others mention good folks and good values.

Do your own due diligence research wise, as always, better pricing / value may be available elsewhere. ie buying in bulk yourself and storing in buckets bagged in mylar w/oxygen absorbers.

However, overall, they are an excellent place to get started! Buy a case or 2 different cases once a month. In a short while you will be off to a decent start, with a great base. Then you can figure out the best ways to fill the holes in your plan on your own.

Others have posted links to online, so see if there is a Bishops Storehouse nearby, and what there public open day(s) time(s) are. Our local is open one day a week to the public, currently.

Reminds me to get some powdered milk from them.
