3 Months Survival Food for $100 USD

    It’s not a very appetizing diet, but it will provide enough to keep alive. Keep in mind that we’re talking a stockpile for one person here. It would be necessary to multiply this by however many people are being fed.

    The Basic Menu Consists Of:

    • Rice & Beans
    • Pan Bread with Peanut Butter
    Let’s look at how that breaks down:
    • Rice – buy a 50 lb for $17.54 – that gives you 400 servings at 206 calories; eat two servings per meal
    • Pinto beans – buy a 50 lbs for $30.72 – that gives you 600 servings at 42 calories; eat three servings per meal – pinto beans are a great source of proteins
    • Cooking oil – buy two 2-packs totaling 3 gal for $20.76 – that gives you 384 servings at 124 calories; giving us enough for two servings per meal, used mostly in making the pan bread
    • Flour – buy 2 25 lb. bags for $15.46 – that gives you 225 cups at 455 calories; eat one per meal, with peanut butter on it. The peanut butter is a great source of protein and fats
    In addition, we need to buy:
    • Baking powder – $4.98
    • Salt – $1.52
    • Peanut butter – 2 pack of 40 oz jars for $6.52 – that’s 188 calories per serving, once per day

    Total cost for that shopping trip is $97.50, leaving $2.50 to splurge on something you like; maybe a pack of gum. But you’ll probably have to buy it elsewhere, as Sam’s is only going to have huge packs that will cost more than that $2.50.

  • Wow, this is a cool post! Thanks!

    The problem with oil is that (from what I understand) it has a shelf life of maybe two years, so you have to rotate your stock. But rice and beans packed correctly last longer than a normal human lifespan.
