    Augason Farms 30-Day Emergency Food Supply ensures you have plenty of food during an emergency. This survival food kit comes in a watertight, easy-to-transport 8.5-gallon pail and includes high quality, delicious food that provides enough food for one person for thirty days or a family of four for one week. The hearty meals are easy to prepare (just add water and simmer) and offer excellent nutrition and comfort during uncertain times. The kit is perfect for storing at home or your office for unexpected catastrophes. Includes a convenient 30-Day and 45-day meal planner. 


    30-Day and 45-Day Meal Planners

    This is something you won’t find in any other emergency food kit. Augason Farms takes the guesswork out of daily meal preparation with their unique Meal Planner. In an emergency situation, it is critical that food is carefully prepared to ensure you have a balanced number of calories each day for an extended period of time. If there’s a chance an emergency might go beyond 30 days, the 45-day planner is an important tool to help you spread the food across additional days. It’s safe to say this meal planner could be a lifesaver. 


    Includes

    5 Pouches Cheesy Broccoli Rice (8 servings each)

    6 Pouches Creamy Chicken-Flavored Rice (8 servings each)

    6 Pouches Creamy Potato Soup (8 servings each)

    2 Pouches Elbow Macaroni (7.5 servings each)

    1 Pouch Cheese Powder (15 servings)

    Now more than ever, it’s important to be prepared. Disaster often strikes unexpectedly and can have devastating results. Earthquakes, fires, floods, and other calamities can leave you stranded at home or require immediate evacuation. Unexpected job loss can cause a financial crisis making food purchases difficult. 

    Augason Farms offers a variety of carefully designed emergency preparedness items, including bug-out bags, grab-and-go pails, 72-hour emergency kits and survival food kits that can be placed in your home, office or RV—anyplace you might need it in a pinch.

Whether used for everyday meals or keeping them as an emergency food supply for use years down the road, you can be confident that Augason Farm’s long term food storage products are guaranteed for quality and taste every time.

    • Surprisingly tasty... but needs a few things

      I took one of these camping. Reasonably tasty (although I added salt, pepper, and cinnamon to most things), surprisingly, and mostly good all around. The instant rice and instant potatoes aren't very good - but then, they're mostly just starch calorie fill. Couple of notes: 1) The pouches don't re-seal (although the bucket does). It's dry goods, and theoretically if you're going to *actually* need them, they'll last open the approximately two weeks for the biggest pouch if you follow the plan... but if you plan on actually using this, pick up some large binder clips or something to hold the pouches closed when not in use. 2) The 1,857 average calories per day did not leave me feeling full. I work out regularly, and burn through about 2,500 calories per day to keep my weight stable, so your mileage may vary. That does lead me into... 3) I ran the math: It only averages about 30 grams of protein per day. FDA recommendations say about one thousandth your body weight in protein per day (about 65 grams for an average adult male). You'll want to supplement your protein from somewhere. Fishing, hunting, or perhaps some of Augason Farms other products (they've got preserved meat tins, vegitarian meat substitute dishes, dry eggs, and probably a few other things) is a fairly good idea if you plan on relying on this. 4) The food is almost entirely vegetable matter, but technically not vegetarian. From what I can tell on the ingredient lists, the closest it comes to meat in here is a tiny amount of chicken fat in about half the items. Few people are picky in emergencies, and I personally think animals are, in fact, for eating (also wearing - I like my leather coat), but something to keep in mind. This does give you enough to get by for a while. The meal plan did not leave me feeling full for long (it's mostly starches, and those digest quickly), though, so in an emergency you're going to be SORELY tempted to burn through your 30 days of supplies in less than that. If you are primarily worried about the power being out for a week due to a storm, this will probably carry you through without issues. If you're planning to use this as a long-term solution, you're going to need to add a few things to prevent nutritional deficiencies, and to help you feel full.

      Great Item and good delivery speed, All items were as listed .. I had one pouch of oatmeal that was not full . It contained about one third of what was in the others, but other than that it was just as expected. Oatmeal pouch was sealed,so I am assuming the machine that filled it messed up.. lol.

      grab a few and put them away, one note is it takes 18 gallons of water to re-hydrate the entire bucket, just stock up enough water so you dont fall short

    • Hard to review this
      Verified Purchase

      First off. Most people don't open this and use it, as it is for emergencies. So you won't find as many revies as there should be. With that said, I haven't used it, but i have researched it. This is the best bang for the buck. $10 cheaper than wise and you get so much more. This is emergency food with a potential shelf life of 20ish years. I hope to never taste it!! Shipping was very fast and everything came well packed. Close to 2k calories a day. Most others are far less than that. I am sure if your a guy like me(6'3", 240LBS) you will need every bit of 2000 cals. Mostly meatless and "soupish". I am giving this 5 stars for amount of food and calories.

    • Emergency Pail Food
      Verified Purchase

      This is the first time I ever tried buying large quantities of survival food. The taste is not as good as buying individual dry soup mixes, but comes in much larger quantities for less money, and the soups can easily be better tasting with a few added spices. The only package that is resealable is the oatmeal, so storage containers are needed for any unused portions.

      Verified Purchase

      With products with a set shelf life, I am always concerned that I will receive the items that were manufactured years ago. NOT this item. It was packaged and sealed on Jan 31 2013 with a shelf life as stated...the full 20 years providing it is stored as required.

    • Great value / Packed with food

      This bucket make the Wise buckets look small. It is packed with food. Great value!

    • Great price for emergency food.

      I have been researching prices of emergency food for awhile and this is the best I've found so far, priced per serving. I also appreciate that it comes in a sturdy pail for other uses.

      The bucket arrived yesterday and I checked the labels of the food packages. Full of Yellow#6 and #5 and disodium sulfate and so forth. Not something you usually would like to eat. I had ordered before from Mountain House and the food was good quality and made with natural ingredients.

      I absolutely love Auguson Farms products. They are always high quality, nutritious, and offers a wide variety of foods. They are packaged for convenience and their foods will keep for many, many years. I would highly recommend this and their other products for anyone interested in storing foods.

      This bucket is the best value for the money in the product class. I haven't tried it being it's an emergency product, but it brings peace of mind having it on hand. 8.5 gallon bucket is great to store it and have on hand, as if you are using this in an emergency, having a good, large bucket with a lid will prove very helpful. Overstock has a great price on this and I'm mostly likely going to reorder this in the future and soon. I believe everyone should have extra food on hand, both what you eat and long-term storage like this.

      Product arrive fairly quickly and safely. They state this shelflife is 20 years, however I was cheated five years of the shelf-life. I bought three of these and they all expire in 15 years as opposed to 20. Highly disappointed.

      I love these buckets are so convenient. Got them for piece of mind in the event of hard times, but they are also good for when we want to go camping or go on road trip. Recommend to family and friends all the time.

      Purchased as a just in case to use in an emergency situation. It is very heavy and the bucket seems to be of sturdy construction and well made. Meaning if the time comes I would think the bucket will make it through the event. Since I am in California you could probably guess what type of event I am talking about. I did not open the bucket to see any of the contents. I thought opening it might decrease the shelf life. I am relying that it has the contents as described at time of purchase and more so hoping I would never have to open it to actually use it!
