FOOD STORAGE CALCULATOR
Food storage has been practiced for thousands of years. However, in modern civilizations, many cultures have dropped this practice in favor of instant supply and demand. The fatal flaw with this approach is that there is only a mere 3 day supply of food available in the stores at any one time. When disasters strike, this becomes quite evident, with shelves stripped bare by hungry consumers.
The historical need for proper personal preperations has always remained true, perhaps more now then ever. Any interruption to the supply chain can and does cause severe shortages very quickly. The Hurricane Katrina disaster was magnified by the lack of preparations among the people, who would have suffered much less had they been prepared. Having personal preparations makes good solid sense. Don't be victimized by events beyond your control. Food storage is wise preparations for tomorrow's uncertainties.
The following table is a quick reference list for suggested minimum quantities of foods for men, woman and children for a one year food supply. This should be adjusted accordingly for activity, temperature and other factors, including waste, loss or the need to share.
Weights and quantities for children should be adjusted according to age and eating habits. The table below is the Recommended Daily Allowance for Men and Women. Children should be adjusted accordingly to their weight and activity.
This is a common practice done to attract uninformed buyers into making a quick purchase. Many units are pathetically small with a low prices. The actual number of servings and calories these units contain are less than half of what you need to stay healthy and alive - a rather poor 'deal' for you or your family.
Compute the figures on any claims you see online - we offer far larger units at lower prices!
The more active you are, the more calories you need. The RDA is 2900 for men, 2300 for Women for an active lifestyle. Stress, sleep deprivation and any "collapse" event will increase your calorie needs!
