    Rice, canned goods, salted fish or cured meats, or frozen meats. Frozen veg. In case of loss of electricity, the salted meats can last a good amount of time and the rice and canned goods are good to go. Dried beans are great, preserves are good as well such as fruits in mason jars kept in dark places.

    Canned items. Dry pasta, rice, legumes. Frozen foods, although they should be used within 3 months. Nuts and seeds will last a while, but last longer if you freeze them. Peanut butter will last a long time, especially if you keep it in the fridge.

    For longer-term needs, a long time and that you can use to stay alive, such as wheat, white rice, and beans. These items can last 30 years or more when properly packaged and stored in a cool, dry place.
