Emergency FoodWater and Food will be needed in any emergency.

A active person can drink two quarts of water a day, but you can get by with less if your not going to be active.  With respect to food a normal person needs about 1,800 calories a day.   A good rule of thumb would be 3 small water boxes per person per day and a 1,800 to 2,400 calorie food ration bar for each person, per day.  Many experts then recommend a 3 day supply for each person in your group.Having  your own private food reserve makes a lot of sense.  You can use dehydrated camping food and/or use cans of food as well.

Emergency Water

The first priority really is having an ample supply of clean water as people cannot survive without water.  A person can survive a few days with out food, its not comfortable but it can be done.   Having an ample supply of clean water and some food is a top priority in any emergency.
