as salam alaikum

storing food as precaution during disasters in itself is allowed and it could be also praiseworthy if the intention is to share it with others in times of hardship. However different situations call for different ways of dealing; for example it wouldn't be correct to store extra-food for ourselves while others cannot afford, or barely afford, basic necessities. In such case we should try to give priority to the needy, kids and elders in difficulty and offer our help to them if and when needed.

With prayers for your success.

Yes (as long as it is halal, and as long as you follow a scholar allowing food from Ahl al-Kitab). Keep in mind, in some cultures, it is common to cook and bake with alcohol especially during the holidays, so you may want to be sure there is no alcohol in the food.

Non Ahlul Kitab non Muslims are not Taahir. If they touch the food with wetness, it becomes Najis. We as Muslims are not allowed to eat Najis food.

Yes, it is allowed to stop consuming any food which you don't like if there is no big harm on your health by stopping it. Leaving any food does not allow you to claim it as Haraam or completely harmful. No one is allowed to claim any thing as Haraam, with out the authentic evidence from the Marja' of Taqleed.

If you have trust (itmi'naan) in the reliability of the label, and its authority, or if it comes from an Islamic country, then you can consider it to be halal, and there is no need to go into detail to check further. 

And Allah knows best.
