Ever Wonder What Three Months of Food Looks Like?

Mountain House Food No. 10 Can

You may wonder what three months of food looks like. A lot of people do. Well, Nitro-Pak has a couple of freeze dried food units that will give you an idea.

A food unit that is one year for one person, is also six months for two people, or three months for four people. Likewise, a food unit that is six months for one person is also three months for two people.

Let’s look at a food unit that is one person for six months (two people for three months). It provides 2000 calories per day. If you are a woman who doesn’t like to think about calories, you should know it is useful to know the number of calories per day that a food unit provides. I mean, how else are you going to compare food units sold by different companies?

This is the Six Month Gold Reserve food unit. It has a combination of Mountain House Freeze Dried Food and Nitro-Pak dehydrated food. It comes in 14 cases for a total of 84 #10 cans.

Note that foods marked NP are Nitro-Pak dehydrated foods. Foods marked MH are Mountain House foods.
