Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know how much freeze dried emergency food I need?
Because serving sizes are not uniform across all brands, we recommend calculating your needs using calories. In very basic terms, calories represent how much energy food gives you. On average, a person needs 2,000 calories per day to be comfortable, so this is the amount we recommend planning around. Below, you can find a chart that shows how many days of food this package represents based on eating 2,000 calories a day, for different numbers of people.
We also include 1,200 calorie days for reference. 1,200 Calories is the bare minimum you should prepare for. It will get you by, but expect to be hungry! (For reference, coma patients get around 1,100 calories each day just to maintain their resting state.)
Where can I find the expiry date for my emergency food?
Pouches are individually labelled with the manufacturing dates. If stored in a cool, dry place the food will last for 25 years from that date.
If I open the bucket, will the emergency food go bad?
The shelf life is for individual pouches as long as they are not opened, so you can open the bucket to check the manufacturing dates or sample pouches without fear!
