Well, I know you should keep a supply of foodstuffs on hand and I was so excited to find out what was on it.
I currently keep on hand the bags of soup that you add water to. I tend to add different meats and frozen vegetables, depending on what type of soup I'm making. They have a few years shelf life on them, so I don't worry about what I have hanging around. When there is a sale, I buy more.
Then I saw this post from ReadyNutrition.com, 11 Emergency Food Items That Can Last a Lifetime.
You know I was right on this!
With proper preparation the following can be stored for a long, long time:
Wheat (though I wonder how for this one. I'm going to have to check it out)
Instant Coffee, Tea and cocoa
Non carbonated soft drinks

One item you'll always need is water. If something happens don't forget to fill up your tub and sinks with water. Fill any empty containers with as much water as you can. Remember, you can go longer without food than water.
Now I wonder how I can work this information into my series. There had to be someone that had prepared and survived. Like Hope's family went on, someone prepared also has to have descendants around. Somehow A Dragon's Fated Heart series will absorb and use this information!
