10 Stockpile Food Items for Low-Income Families

With the coronavirus outbreak causing many families to stay home for two weeks or longer, it’s important that we share a list of stockpile food items for low-income families. Store shelves are being wiped out and those in need the most, lower-income families, are having a hard time finding foods that have a long shelf life.

Today I’m featuring some stockpile food items to help low-income families order items that may not taste great, or be your first option for food, but will have a long shelf life.

This means you can feed your family, regardless of your current income level. I know that these food options for a stockpile food list may not be your first choice, but I firmly believe having any food on hand during the coronavirus outbreak quarantine is better than having no food.

Please review my list, and select some stockpile food items that will help your family be prepared with food options during the coronavirus outbreak.

One thought on “10 Stockpile Food Items for Low-Income Families

  1. This is a great list. I think the phrase “Desperate times calls for desperate measures” applies in this situation. I told my kids that our meals may look a little different over the next month because of what’s available at the grocery store. I’ve also been making casseroles in 8×8 pans instead of 9×13 so we have less leftovers that don’t get eaten.
