A MONTH’S SUPPLY

  

“It is…necessary that each home and family do what they can to assume the
responsibility for their own hour of need.  If we do not have the resources to acquire a
year’s supply, then we can strive to begin with having one month’s supply.”

--James E. Faust

 

Based on suggested amounts in “Essentials of Home Production and Storage,” a month’s supply of food for one person would consist of the following:

 

Grains

25 pounds

 

 

Powdered milk

6.25 pounds

 

 

Sugar or honey

5 pounds

 

 

Salt

1/4 box

 

 

Fats and oils

1-2/3 pounds

 

 

Legumes

5 pounds

 

  

A suggested month’s supply of food for one person could consist of the following foods:

One case of 6 #10 cans-
1 can wheat (about 6 pounds)
1 can rice (about 6 pounds)
1 can rolled oats or macaroni (about 3 pounds)
1 can popcorn (about 6 pounds)
1 can non-instant non-fat dry milk (about 4 pounds)
1 can dry beans (5 pounds)

Plus
5 pound bag flour
4 or 5 pound bag sugar
26 ounce box salt
32 ounce bottle oil

 ESTIMATED COST:  less than $25

 

Where facilities and equipment are unavailable for canning food in #10 cans, purchase the equivalent amount and store in a container with a tight fitting lid.
