How Much Food Do I Need?

In these days of extreme uncertainty, many are wondering how much food does my family need? In fact, the most common question that I receive from readers and listeners is, how much food do I need in order to survive what is coming? Since things like serving sizes, calories and appetites all factor into the equation, there is not a “one-size fits all” answer to the question. I can, however, use the information that I have, along with some simple math, to help you make an informed, intelligent decision regarding your storable food needs.

As mentioned earlier, the key factors in determining your food storage needs are Servings and Calories. The servings per bucket are clearly outlined on the Food for Liberty website, and the calories per serving for Numanna food is 270 calories per serving. I have also fielded numerous questions regarding packaging and freshness. Once you open the Mylar bag containing the food, you need to merely re-seal it with the zipper-lock seal provided with each bag. You will no longer have a 25 year shelf life once you open the bag, it will, however, last for quite some time as long as it’s kept dry. Please understand that the recommendations below are intended to be merely a guide, for everyone’s appetite is different. With those factors in mind, let’s get started.

*** It is my recommendation that you have a minimum of 2 years of food on hand and a 1 year supply of food for each family member is the absolute bare minimum. However, I am going to use a 3-month supply in the example below for those who may have budgeting concerns.***

For an average adult needing about 1500 calories a day, one would expect to consume 11 servings over 2 days. If you go out 3 months, you have 495 Servings in total. To meet that criteria, you would purchase the following:
