The last items in your supply should be disposable plates, cups and utensils.”Once you have your food supply together, make a list of dateswhen food items need to be inspected and possibly rotated out.Then replace them with newly bought items,” Andress said. “Cannedfoods can last two years. But for best quality, use them withinone year.”Powdered milk may be stored 12 to 24 months. Use most of theother foods in your emergency supply within one year, or rotatethem out. Over time, replace any rusty, leaky, dented or bulgingfood cans.Once your emergency food supply is intact, store it in a cool,dry place.
