People across the nation are building ever-growing stockpiles of
bottled water, medical supplies, and common non-perishable food
items. For most, survival food includes canned goods from
supermarket shelves, powdered milk, rice, oats and dried beans.
Staples such as flour, oil and salt also frequently make the cut.
Peanut butter, with its high fat, calorie and protein content,
could be considered a high-protein staple as well.
