How “Fake Survival Food” Increases Your Survival Odds
The Purpose Of Decoy Food
Although it seems counterintuitive, decoy survival food is a supply of real food you actually want thieves to take. And it’s this way for one simple reason.
You can’t defend your homestead 100% from looters and thieves (especially in a survival situation). If they want to break into your home badly enough, they’ll do it.
However, when they come looking for food, and find your fake survival food stash, they’ll think they hit the jackpot.
By putting this fake food in your pantry and cupboards – and hiding your REAL stash somewhere safe – the thieves will likely think they’re leaving you with nothing. When, in truth, they’re not even making off with a fraction of your food supply.
Not to mention, if numerous thieves are pillaging bug out camps, the looters that come next will likely just think that others got to your food supply first, and will move on.
One important thing to remember about decoy food is that it needs to look like the real deal. What do I mean by that? Make sure your decoy supply is full of high-quality brand foods, such as Mountain House, Survival Cave, Legacy Foods, etc.
The point of this is that, if you just throw a few cheap items on the counter, the thieves will probably get suspicious. So, although it costs a little more, it’s well-worth it to do what you can to ensure thieves think they’re really leaving you high and dry.
Here’s an informational video that explains a little more about fake survival food. It even talks about how you can use a similar process for your valuables.
Where To Get Fake Survival Food
It can be a hard sell to go spend a ton of money on fake survival food. After all, you’re not going to end up eating – so why spend all your hard-won income?
Thankfully, you don’t need to spend a lot of money (or any, in some cases) in order to take advantage of this “decoy food ploy.” Here’s just a few places you can likely find fake survival foods:
- The dollar store
- Clearance grocery aisles
- Garage sales (especially for cans of food)
- Trash receptacles
- Recycling centers
- Friends, coworkers, neighbors (just don’t tell them what it’s for)
Survival Tip: When purchasing decoy food, make sure to get a good variety of different foods. I’m talking canned meats, freeze-dried meals, veggies and fruits, dry items (like rice and beans), bottles of water, etc. If you want thieves to think they’re taking your entire stockpile, you should make it look convincing.
Where To Put Decoy Food
If you want your fake survival food to look like the real deal, you’ll need to plant it in the most common areas of your home. Place your decoy supply in your kitchen cabinets, pantry, etc. Anywhere you would normally put food.
Then, hide your real stockpile in a place nobody would expect.
