Default What does a one year supply of food look like?

Two of my good friends put together a display of what a one year supply of food for one person would look like. Keep in mind, this is not luxury living, it is survival living. It is a very visual representation and really lets a person know that it is a very achievable goal and a great beginning point.
Hope this helps.

It is recommended that you have a 2 week supply of fresh water for each individual. It would be all but impossible to store a year supply of fresh water. I will get you the rest of the details in a few minutes

Excellent visual representation. Looks like those are the Mormon guidelines you're going with which is a true bare minimum...but it's definitely good to help people see that it doesn't have to be a big huge pantry to start out.

Excellent thread.

Was this done for Relief Society?

That's bare minimum, but folks would do well to stock that, then build on it with other goods.

How many here could actually eat 1 loaf of bread and 1/3 cup of beans every single day? First off that's not a lot of food. Second off I'd be so sick of bread and beans I'd probably kill myself about 2 months in.

While it would be better than dirt and leaves everyone should strive for a little more diversity in their food preps.

Don't forget the honey. You could alternate days - beans & rice one day - bread & honey 2nd day, etc.

On a serious note I agree with your point about diversity. And my preps will be supplemented with stuff from the garden, wild game & foraged wild edibles.

A variety of seasonings will help greatly regardless of what you store & forage.

guess it just depends on the person..i already eat chicken some 250 days out of a year..and given this is a step up from rice and beans..am i wrong in thinkin japanese peasants basically lived on rice only during certain times in their history?..seem to recall thats all they were allowed while higher classes consumed much better meals

When I first started buying things,I wrote everything down.Product,sell buy date,how many items I had.This way I have a quick and easy reference to what I have stored.When I buy more I simply add to the list.Its a good way to tell if I have enough items.
