Emergency Food Storage
I thought I’d do a few calculations here to figure out how much food one person needs to store for emergency situations.
1/4 cup uncooked rice = 160 calories.
Figuring that one person would eat 2000 calories/day – that’s an average obviously.
2000 calories/160 calories = 12.5 (1/4 cup) servings
A 50 pound bag of rice = 500 servings.(From the bags nutrition information)
Therefore 500 servings/12.5 servings a day = 40 days one person could survive on rice alone.
You also need other foods to fill in and supplement, but rice does seem to be a cheap and long lasting emergency food.
