Food Storage plans are intended to feed one person for one year:
Here are the year’s totals for all of the plans:
The Bare Minimum $480 for the year, with monthly purchases averaging $40
Expanded Storage $1870 for the year, with monthly purchases averaging $155
Gluten-Free Storage $1017 for the year, with monthly purchases averaging $85
We hope this is helpful!

I am in the process of updating prices and packaging for all food plans. I was shocked to see that even with a rise in wheat and oat prices, the Bare Minimum overall costs went down by a couple dollars a month! Great news for building your food storage!
