This year's hurricane season kick’s-off early on May 15, it is important to be prepared on all fronts. We must have a good supply of water, batteries and non-perishable food items to last us for approximately 5 to 7 days. It’s always important to check the expiration dates and to make sure they don’t require refrigeration.
At B. Fernández we have a wide variety of canned products, such as Starkist Tuna, Spam and Hormel Chicken Breast, which can become the perfect complement to your meals during the hurricane season. Whether for sandwiches, salads, or rice dishes, you can enjoy them in a versatile and safe way, even opening the cans to consume them at the moment.
On the other hand, thanks to the long-lasting Naturally Vitamin Milk, the family will not have to sacrifice breakfast cereal dishes or hot drinks as long as you have a gas stove.
Likewise, you can store dry foods like Barilla pasta, Pop-Tarts and Kellogg’s cereal bars that do not require refrigeration and can last for longer periods of time.
Other low-cost & easy to prepare food alternatives include Smucker's Jelly and JIF Peanut Butter, spread it on Pan Pepin bread and make the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Pets are part of the family; we need to be ready with everything from treats to toys and food. Make sure you have enough food and Milk Bone Treats in case stores are closed for several days.
Given all the changes that we have experienced in the past 3 years, it is recommended that we always have food stored and have an emergency plan in place. Maintaining a healthy diet for all the members of the family is key, even in such an extraordinary situation like a hurricane.
