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!

The Bare Minimum

5 quarts oil   $9.84  (Walmart)

25 lbs dry beans  $12  (Costco)

4 cans oats  $11.80 (LDS Cannery)

TOTAL $37.64

Expanded Storage

19 cans wheat (100 lbs)   $56.05 (LDS cannery)

3 5-gallon food-grade buckets   $21 (Lowes)

12 cans tuna   $9 (Walmart)

25 lbs sugar   $11 (Costco)

2 cans fruit drink mix   $8 (LDS Cannery)

3 cans powdered milk  $14.25 (LDS Cannery)

17 lbs instant potatoes  $27.54  (Winco)

TOTAL  $147.79

Gluten-Free Storage

50 lbs tapioca flour $62  (Winco)

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!

Store names provided when I thought they might be helpful in keeping costs down.  If you are having a hard time finding items for the price listed, leave a comment by clicking on the link at the top of the left sidebar and I will give you my pricing info. Pricing is subject to change…as anyone shopping these days can testify!
