National Terror Alert Response Center recommends two weeks of food
The question everyone always asks is, “How much food should I store?” Well, let’s look at that.
It is universally agreed that 72 hours is the minimum amount of food and water you should have on hand for each person. What’s funny is that even the branches of government don’t agree on this issue.
The National Terror Alert Response Center recommends this:
“Even though it is unlikely that an emergency would cut off your food supply
for two weeks, you should prepare a supply that will last that long.”
If you have a family of four and you don’t think two weeks of food is enough, then you could choose a larger amount of food.
