I would go with either Emergency Essentials (beprepared.com) or Nitro-pak (nitro-pak.com) for a large reserve purchase.
They have the best values for reserves and each have been around long enough, 18 – 20 years as brick and mortar stores, to have some trust value for a large purchase.
Reserves tend to be a mix of mainly freeze dried and also some long storing canned foods (oats, powdered milk) that will store 8-10 years. Check what the number of servings of freeze dried versus shorter shelf life foods to help make a decision.
Also you want to work out the number of calories per day a package delivers. Some `3 month` packages at other online sites look like good deals until you see the servings divided by 3 months work out to less than 900 calories per day. You want 2000 or more calories per day per adult. There should also be a balance of food groups in the reserve.
What you choose depends on how you plan to use the reserve with other food storage you are planning.
