13 Foods You Need to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

DON’T FORGET:
basic can opener
pocket knife
backpack with pouches/pockets
ziplock bags for storage

Oh no! The Zombie Apocalypse you have always feared has struck! Are you prepared? While your first thoughts might be to collect weapons to fight the zombies, don’t forget you will need to eat. Stockpiling food, (as well as other supplies) for the zombie apocalypse should always be thought about in two parts:

  • What do I need for my shelter?
  • What do I need while mobile? (running from zombies)

PBS Food has compiled a list of basic tips, supplies and food you’ll need for both cases. For reference, Shelter supplies should last you at least one month and you should have enough food to last you about 2 weeks on-the-run.

Generally speaking, you need to stay hydrated, alert, light, and strong. Stay away from foods that are perishable, salty, and require cooking. Foods that boost energy are particularly important.
