How much and what types of food am I supposed to store for my family?
To calculate how much your family needs, go to the following websites:
-this is very basic
-keep in mind that if your family doesn’t like something (i.e. lima beans – who does?!?! J); then you can substitute with other food that fits into that category. Just make sure your total amount is correct, even if your break down of each type of food differs from the food calculator suggested items.
-this is from a great website that has a lot to offer, take some time to check it out
-this one is in a excel spreadsheet and gives you a spot to do a cost break down
-very detailed and might not be for you if you don’t like a lot of info thrown to you at once!
