Hi all,

I am new to prepping, and I want to begin to store canned food, water, rice etc in a barn.
What I was wondering is the following, in the summer it can be hot inside and in the winter it can be cold, could this affect the food and water quality?

Looking forward to an answer.

Kind regards,

We live in North Florida, where it gets below freezing on some winter mornings.
And in the summer we have several months of afternoons that will be above 100 degrees.
On our front porch we have several old, non working, chest freezers.
We keep canned goods in those.

I'm not sure leaving canned goods sitting on shelving exposed to your extremes in temperature would be a good thing.
Perhaps some of our members who live further north can answer that.
