Logistics of storing what you eat and eat what you store  

From Wikipedia 

Root cellar and Food storage allows food to be eaten for some time (typically weeks to months) after harvest rather than solely immediately. It is both a traditional domestic skill and, in the form of food logistics, an important industrial and commercial activity. Food preservation, storage, and transport, including timely delivery to consumers, are important to food security, especially for the majority of people throughout the world who rely on others to produce their food. Food is stored by almost every human society and by many animals. Storing of food has several main purposes:

  • Storage of harvested and processed plant and animal food products for consumers
  • Enabling a better balanced diet throughout the year
  • Reducing kitchen waste by preserving unused or uneaten food for later use
  • Preserving pantry food, such as spices or dry ingredients like rice and flour, for eventual use in cooking
  • Preparedness for catastrophes, emergencies and periods of food scarcity or famine
  • Protection from animals or theft
