Food Storage

I couldn't figure out how to post a link in the comment section, so I'm going to try doing it in an actual post. Anyway, here is what I was going to say in response to Joy's question.

It's funny that you brought this up because just a day or two ago I came across the answer to your question. I am in the same situation. My parents gave me some cans from their food storage, but they are quite old so I was wondering the same thing as you. Our ward is going to the cannery today as assignment and so in preparation our RS prez gave us order forms. On the order form (you can find it here: it lists all the items they can/sell and right next to it, it lists their storage lives in years (assuming it was stored according to recommendations all those years). Anyway, I think it should answer your question. Also, you should check out the Church's food storage website( It has lots of good stuff. And here is more information about recent findings on food storage life.,11666,7797-1-4222-1,00.html and,1721,495006685,00.html
