Have you ever wondered how much food you need to stockpile for yourself or the entire family? Believe it or not, most families do not correctly calculate what food they need.

This calculator may just save your family’s in an emergency. Don’t make the same mistake thousands of people make and not stockpile enough food.

You may need more than you think.

I love this simple and handy food storage calculator. All you need to do is select the number of family members you need to feed.

Then select how many months you are anticipating your food storage needs will last.

Finally, choose either traditional staples (wheat, grains, and starches), freeze-dried, or a mix of both. If you are planning for an extended period, then go with at least a mix of both for longevity.
