Shelf Reliance THRIVE 6 Month-4 Person Food Supply
9,438 Total Servings - One Hundred Fifty-Six #10 Cans
Item # 426555
$1,999.99 Shipping & Handling included
Costco.com 6 Months of food for a Family of 4. Shelf Life 10-30 Years

It looks like this is based on a 2,000 Calorie per day diet. Cost per person per day is $2.78. That's a great price. Free shipping of 27 cases of Food and No tax.

Average salt content is much less than Costco's over-salted 5 gallon 275 serving buckets. Better quality and more variety.

I ordered this and I should have it on monday. 80% of the items have a 25-30 year shelf life. Comes with a Wheat Grinder. This is the kind of food to have. Its like money in the bank but with a better rate of return.

You eat your normal supplies and if a food shortage comes you then eat the emergency food. If you run into money problems you can still eat the emergency food. You really don't loose any value. If inflation hits, food will be more expensive as it always has been.

For longest shelf life always store Emergency food in the coldest place in the house.

The food only took 3 days for delivery from the time I ordered it. I give it a 5 star rating. Excellent Value and Costco will give a 100% refund (no time limits) for any reason. You can drop it off at a local Costco.

For $2.78 per person per day it's a great deal. Compare that to what you pay for perishable food. All the freeze dried fruits are tasty. The nutritional value is well balanced. The wheat is as whole grain as you can get as you grind it. The wheat grinder works great for numerous grains. Very easy to use and very little effort.

The 27 Cases of food take up very little space 31 cubic feet in total. This is enough food to last one person 2 years or 4 people 6 months.

The US Government is no longer keeping a 1-2 year stockpile of food in our silo's. So now is a good time to keep our own reserves.
