Soapbox Saturday - Daily Bread and a DISCOUNT!

Ever since I came remember, our church has advised people to have a "food storage."  I remember labeling cans and stocking the basement as a child.  Why would anyone do that?  Well, the reasoning behind it is similar to the boy scout motto: BE PREPARED.  Anyone can turn on the news today and hear about earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, floods, droughts, job lay-offs, you name it.  While we cannot predict the future for ourselves we definitely CAN do our best to prepare.


Several weeks ago I had a man knock on my door and tell me about "Daily Bread."  I wasn't really familiar with them before, but I talked with him for a little while and did some research on my own afterwards.  Daily Bread is a company that sells food storage.  I'm excited to tell you more about them and share what I've learned.  You may be familiar with some food storage companies, but there are a few things I LOVE about Daily Bread in particular.

- Their food has a 25 YEAR SHELF LIFE!!!  My husband and I have struggled with out own personal food storage because we'll buy a lot of something, slowly use it, forget to replace it, etc.  Or we'll buy something and forget about it until it's outdated.  Dailybread’s food comes in fully prepared meals with real meat and vegetables that are guaranteed to last at least 25 years. It gives families a way to complete their food storage without ever having to rotate it or throw it away.  Genius!

- Their food tastes really good.  It's freeze dried.  You can even make it in the bag it comes in.  All you do is add hot or cold water, so it’s very simple to prepare.  I sampled the lasagna and I was shocked.  To be totally honest, I expected it to be nasty.  It was great.  Rex and I fought over the last bites :)

- Their food doesn't take up much storage room.  The food is very light weight and compact so you can move and store it just about anywhere.

We all know the economy is difficult.  We've cringed as gas prices rise.  The National Inflation Association says that out of control food pricing is going to be next.  Stocking up now might be a wise idea.

Now let's talk details and deals.  The average cost per serving of a normal freeze dried meal when bought at a camping or emergency supply store is anywhere from $5 to $8, but because Daily Bread sells in bulk the average cost per serving is in the $2.30 range.

They sell packages, based on a family of 5.  Think of what you'd normally spend on 3 months of meals for a family of five. Now, these are meals that are fully prepared and last 25 years.  Their normal pricing is as follows. 


My contact, Brett, has offered to give all of you a group discount off any package.  You can pick up your food for free if you’re located in Utah county, but if you want it shipped to you, Brett will also knock ½ off the shipping price through this special bulk deal.  He will also give you a discount on their a la Carte menu (after you've purchased a package).  Call Brett directly to order your package.  He can be reached at 801-317-5848.  You can contact him with any questions you might have.  The deal is available through August.

IN ORDER TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS DEAL YOU MUST CONTACT BRETT ONLY AND NOT REQUEST A SAMPLE THROUGH THE DAILY BREAD WEBSITE. YOU MUST ALSO MENTION MY BLOG TO HIM OR HE WILL NOT GIVE YOU THIS DEAL.

Whether or not you buy a package of food in this way, I recommend stocking up on food storage.  It's a great way to prepare for uncertainty in a difficult economy, giving you and your family peace of mind.

Thanks for reading.
