This is a respectable company with a good, solid track record. They have a wide variety of food storage and emergency supplies, and a selection of plans to help make sure you are buying what we need for your family. Daily Bread has good pricing on its products. We love that you can call in and request a free sample, as well as purchase some low-cost sample packs, before investing a lot of money in foods you may not even like.
The Daily Bread website is not especially informative; if you are looking for a lot of educational articles or a good community connection, we advise you to keep looking elsewhere.
We also consider it a drawback that you cannot shop a la carte from their food line, unless you want to buy it by the case. Most preparedness stores make their wares available in smaller quantities, in addition to purchasing an expensive plan or an entire case of food.
Finally, the website has some odd quirks. There is a video described as a “documentary of an average family living solely on daily bread food storage products for one week – unscripted and unbiased.” Upon watching the video, we found a short “before” interview with the family planning to try this – but the video ends before the experiment begins. We get the sense that these things probably stem more from a degree of neglect of the website, rather than an intention to deceive, but we were still a little turned off by them.
Daily Bread does not offer very many informative materials. On the home page, users can download a free 14 page Prep Guide, but to get it you have to enter your email, presumably inviting future correspondence. The Prep Guide contains basic information and checklists on home safety, food storage, water storage, budgeting for a disaster, and gardening.
There are also a number of short educational videos available in the “press” section. Most of these are promotional material and television spots, but some offer basic instructions on preparing a family emergency plan and building food storage.
For very basic, beginning information on emergency preparation, the Prep Guide is a useful document, but the Daily Bread website is lacking in any extensive or in-depth resources for further learning and research.
Daily Bread has an online store which stocks a solid variety of food storage options, primarily freeze-dried. The food has to be purchased either as part of a plan (pre-made plans are available as well as custom plans), or by the case. There is also a small selection of inexpensive samples, which is a nice feature. The prices vary from average to high in comparison to the competition.
There is also a decent selection of other emergency supplies, such as water supplies, backpacks, emergency cooking, seeds, tools, and camping supplies.
Connecting with the Community
The website does not offer any resources for connecting with your local community. They do have an active presence on social media.
How is the Website?
Daily Bread’s website is mostly easy to use and well organized. The educational videos are difficult to find, being located with the promotional materials in the “press” section. Aside from that, our only complaint is that the website is not especially rich in information.
