More and more these days, gluten-free options are popping up on fast food menus, the baking aisle at the grocery store, and most home pantries, but, unfortunately, the food storage world has been a little slow in adapting its offerings to meet the needs of a growing number of people. Legacy Premium is one of the only companies in the industry to offer such a wide variety of gluten-free food storage options. [...]

Per FDA, Legacy Removes ‘No MSG’ Labels from Popular Meals
With many consumers identifying themselves as sensitive to MSG, Legacy Food Storage makes every effort to keep this common additive out of its foods and will never use MSG as an ingredient. However, new standards from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now require [...]
T.S. Eliot said that April is the cruellest month, but he was wrong. February is surely the champion of cruel months. From the dirty snow that’s been heaped along the sidewalks since November’s first storm to the grey skies that make it seem like evening all day long, February, in my opinion, is winter outstaying its welcome, and even though it’s the shortest month of the year, it usually feels interminable. Worst [...]

From food shortages and natural disasters to political unrest and economic uncertainty, the world is not a predictable place. A National Geographic Channel survey conducted in 2012 found that even though 64 percent of Americans surveyed thought the U.S. would experience a significant earthquake or other major emergency state within the next 25 years, a staggering 25 percent said they have done nothing to prepare for [...]
Cold weather is upon us and winter weather can fluctuate as the season progresses. Winter storms can range from a beautiful snow dusting to blinding, ice covered streets with freezing rain and large drifts of snow that can last for several days. Two of the main concerns with winter weather are dangerous driving conditions and loss of electrical power to homes.
If you are in, or plan to be in an area of [...]
In today’s society, our food and supplies come from all over the world. Because the stores always seem full, it is hard to imagine a real food shortage happening. If our intricate food system, so reliant on computers, should be disrupted, a food shortage is a real scenario we all should be planning for. Today, people are increasing their own personal preparedness for climatic, economic and everyday [...]
Being mentally prepared for emergencies is not something we talk about very often when we discuss disaster preparedness, but it may be the most important survival skill of all. Physical preparedness (having food and water stored, etc) will keep you nourished, but psychological preparedness is what will help you survive.
Sometimes we hear stories of people who have lived through drastic survival situations—the most dramatic example that comes to my mind is Aron Ralston, who cut off his own arm to [...]
Every good pet owner makes sure that pets are fed, groomed, exercised, sheltered, and sometimes even clothed, but one area of care that many pet owners forget is to prepare their pets for emergency situations. If you are in the process of gathering supplies and knowledge to get your family prepared for a disaster, don’t neglect your favorite furry, feathery, or scaly friend.
For the most part, pets’ needs in an emergency situation [...]
When a survival situation arises and you go to your cupboard to break out the emergency food you have had stashed away for ages, do you want to be anxiously sniffing it and crossing your fingers that it’s still good and not going to make you very sick? I’m guessing you probably want to be able to trust that the food storage you have spent so much time and effort collecting is [...]
In the snowy, white-washed winter months, sometimes it’s hard to remember what green grass looks like or recall the smell of dirt. This is one of the reasons winter is my least favorite season, and I am always looking for ways to bring a little bit of June into January. One pretty great way to do this and to become more self-reliant in the process is to practice composting through the winter.
