Although one can hope part of this is things you grow, can, dry or freeze - this is a great article on how to set up a pantry. Added bonus: you can use this food as a "savings account" to draw from on weeks when you have an extraordinary expense like a dental emergency, car repair, or expensive prescription. Just make sure to rotate your stock, oldest in the front, newest in the back, and do an yearly inventory. You can donate any excess nearing it's use-by date. Note that food banks accept canned goods up to two years past that date, which means they should still be fine to eat.
