FEMA suggests that each family have a 2 week supply of food and water for their home. Starting a food supply does not have to be a budget breaker. By slowly accumulating emergency supplies, you will not feel the financial “burn” compared to having to pay for everything up front. Therefore, keeping in mind what type of emergencies that you are planning for, if there are any family members with medical needs, how long you want your food supply to last, and so on, will help you make the best choice for your family.
Taking time to read the nutritional information on the back of the food source and knowing other considerations , will help a person make the best choices for their needs. If a person needs to use their stashed food supply, having foods high in vitamins, nutrients, and proteins  will provide their body with what it needs for needed energy and mental clarity.
For those who have pets:
1 large container of dry food – This amount should last 2 weeks or longer
