I"ve compiled a table of how many meals it would take to feed you and your family. The reason I did this is to see just how much food it will actually take. Sure it might be necessary to ration your food and reduce the amount of food you would eat. This gives you an idea of what we are accustomed to and how much to plan for. It will take time, money and storage space. If at all possible it will be necessary to raise your own food. I didn't add a water table because it can vary so much. Start sooner rather than later while there is time. I hope my maths right.

Good post, but in TSHTF scenario, you aren't going to be thinking "meals" as much as "nutrition".

In that situation, food is important, yes, but most important is that you are getting the proper vitamins and nutrients. The human body needs fats, carbs and protein. You can get this from cheap things like peanut butter, pringles and slim jims because they all have extended shelf lives and provide what you need to survive. Granted, you'd probably get sick of them and be lacking in some of the smaller but necessary nutrients, but they are a "poor man's" survival grocery list. Knowing when to eat what is also important, for example.... if you plan to do a lot of physical activity, load up on carbs. After you're done, eat protein and fats.

You would be surprised how far those simple foods will get you.

Oh, and as for water, the recommendation is 1 gallon per person per day.

This site www.efoodsdirect.com... isn't cheap, but it does have many different options and the portions per day are higher than needed IMO, so a frugal survivalist would be able to stretch out the supply...


I linked the 'monthly' supplies, but you can get less or more and they have a long shelf life...

When TSHTF I'm going to go hunt the ducks by the high way. Always wanted to, now I'd have an excuse.

They are not cheap nor do they supply you with anywhere near what you could package/store on your own. I purchased their Liberty package years ago before I took a minute to research things.

I believe I was out $2K once shipping was included. I'm guessing I got about $600 worth of goods - TOPS.

Had I known then what I know now, the room that I keep my storable food in wouldn't be able to contain what I could purchase for the same $2K.

Also, I posted this quite some time ago and would recommend you download it and take advantage of the built in calculations.

Take a read and then download the planner if you wish. I've linked the English version but the metric version is available as well.

What are your plans? I keep a supply of food anyway, my work is seasonal so I stock up for a rainy day. I keep them rotated so nothing goes to waste. The list is not necessarily for wtshtf it is good to at least stock up food in case you lose your job or another emergency takes place. It might be one less thing to worry about in a crisis.
