There are a number of states that put these little things in their preparedness pages...
this one is from the state of Colorado...
it's pretty simple
you input the number of adults
number of kids, toddlers, infants, pets
click the calculate button and below it gives you a list
Recommended Supplies to Include in a Basic 72-Hour Emergency Preparedness Kit Based on the Information Provided Above:
Food and Water
Tools and Other Items
Sanitation and Hygiene
Clothing and Bedding
and more and more and more...
For the 5 adults and one toddler that live with me it gave me this
Water — 22.5 gallons of water for drinking and sanitation
Grains: 132 ounces
Veggies: 49.5 cups
Fruits: 33 cups
Milk: 51 cups
Meat / Beans: 109.5 ounces
Remember that figure is for three (3) days, 72 hours
wonder how much beer I'd need to make through 3 day's????
Anyway it's a bit old school tech wise but go play with it if you got time
