- Avoid storing anything in used containers, as they contain molecules of previous food, which may spoil the fresh stock.
Emergency Storage of Food
Emergencies strike without warning. Hence, one must be prepared for such situations. Always keep an emergency kit of essential foodstuffs ready. This should include dry milk, bread, sugar, butter and other items. Refill this kit periodically, so that the contents don't spoil. People in disaster prone areas should particularly have an emergency kit at hand.
