About this item

  • 2940 - #10 sized cans
  • 152,064 total servings
  • 12,568,540 total calories

Gather your friends, family, church, school, business or organization and create “peace of mind” in today's world with enough food to feed 20 people for one entire year. With a 30-year shelf life*, these great tasting freeze-dried and dehydrated products will keep everyone fed with fantastic recipes and dishes. Designed for emergency food storage or everyday usage.

Family owned and operated since 1972, Augason Farms has refined their recipes and sourced the finest ingredients to create the highest quality, long-term freeze-dried meal solutions in the business. While most emergency food companies contract their production and packaging to outside manufacturers, they produce and package the food items from beginning to end. 

When buying any emergency food kit, it is essential to consider the length of time the kit will feed the number of people being served and most importantly, the average number of calories the kit provides each person in a day. Be wise—the number of servings is important, but not all servings are the same size. Be ready—calories will sustain you and your family, not the number of servings. Augason Farms makes emergency preparedness simple!

Frequently Asked Questions for Augason Farms Food Storage Products:


Q: How do I compare “servings per can or pail” to product weight and calories?

A: The truth is you cannot. Our serving sizes and number of servings per can are set with respect to government guidelines on food nutrition and recipe requirements for each product. You will find some recipe creations may require multiple servings of specific products to create the recipe. When reviewing food storage kits, a good comparison is based upon number of persons, calories per day, length of time and calculating the total number of meals possible. For example: 1-Person, 1-Year (3 meals per day, 365 days = 1,095 total meals), 1,700 calories per day.  Your decision should be based upon average calories per day per person and not the total serving count.


Q: Once I open the product, how long do I have to use the product?

A: Shelf life varies by product and is affected by temperature and moisture. Once the can/pail is opened, the storage life for most products is approximately one year.


Beans, Freeze Dried Fruits & Vegetables:  30 years

Grains: 30 years (Exception – Brown Rice: 7 years)

Bakery Staples: 30 years (Exception – Shortening Powder, Flour, Vital Wheat Gluten, Dough Enhancer: 10 years)

Dehydrated Fruits & Vegetables: 25 years (Exception – Banana Slices, Potato Gems: 10 years)

Q: How will my product be shipped?

A: Most items are shipped by small parcel carriers like FedEx. The larger kits will arrive in multiple boxes from a single carrier.


Q: What do the numbers mean that are marked on my Food Storage Kit Boxes?

A: To facilitate fulfillment of your order, all kit boxes are pre-assembled with specific products, then pulled from inventory to assemble your order. Numbers on the boxes may not be in sequential order. Pail items will be shipped in separate cases.


Q: Why when I open the cans/pails, are some only partially filled?

A: With some products, settling occurs and is expected. Cans/pails are sold by weight and not by volume for that reason.


Q: Where should I store my product?

A: Product is best when stored in a cool, dry place at temperatures between 55˚F and 70˚F (ideal humidity 15%). Heat shortens the storage life of any food – the cooler the storage, the longer the storage life.  Once product is open, please ensure the lid is secure when storing and use within the guidelines.


Q: If a can gets dented, does it affect the quality of the product?

A: Small dents may occur in cans from shipping and this is normal. They do not pose a problem, provided the seal has not been broken at top or bottom of the can. If the seal has been broken at the top or bottom of the can, please contact Sam's Club Customer Service at 1-888-746-7726 to resolve this issue.

Dents should not occur from shipping in pails.  You may however, see indentations in the pail from air pressure changes in shipping.  This will not harm the product inside and should straighten out over a short period of time.


Q: Are the cans/pails marked with "use by" dates?

A: Cans/pails are marked with a production date called a Julian date. For example, 17022 means the can was produced in 2017 on the 22nd day (January 22). Each can is also marked with the expected storage life.
