If you like oatmeal and rice, buy this kit! When I ordered my one-month survival kit, they threw in two 72-hour food packages.
Really, nothing extraordinary about this kit. Mostly oatmeal, four pouches of 8 servings, and rice four packages of 8 servings. The bad part is of the 20 or so pouches of food that I have, all of them are eight serving packages. If you're cooking at home with working electricity and gas, and all your pots and pans, and utensils ready (necessary to prepare these meals), it should not be a problem for feeding a family of four or five. However, in a survival situation why would you need to make 8 servings of anything (eat all 8 servings, or deal with waste). The kit contains 85% starch, and carbs, and maybe 15% protein type meals.
For what you get, save some money and go buy the two serving pouches of Mountain Home survival food (cooks in pouch). There will be less waste, and you can choose from a vast variety of meals!
All in all, very disappointed in this kit. It doesn't even come close to being a month's worth of food for one person. Maybe it will last 2 weeks if you don't mind calling a cup of rice a meal...it's mostly just filler food. And in batches too big to be spread out over multiple days once prepared.
Length of Use: Less than 3 months
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am so sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with your 4 Week Kit. In the FAQ section for the 4 Week Kit, we do list the contents and serving count for each food included.
Our 4 Week Kit includes 184 servings of food. That is 6 servings per day for one person for 4 weeks. You can prepare one serving at a time or the full pouch. For best taste and results, most of the food should be prepared in a pot, simmering for a number of minutes. In a pinch, you could reconstitute the food with hot water in the pouch. In a survival situation, food can be cooked over a fire, charcoal grill, etc. A number of our customers purchase camping supplies/cooking gear to keep with the food so that they will have a way to prepare it.
These kits are designed to provide energy and nutrients for one person in stressful emergency situations. They are not intended to be complete caloric replacements during “normal” times. An average adult needs approx. 2,000 calories per day to meet their energy needs. Our time-based kits generally provide approx. 1,200 calories per day for one person. This may not be enough for optimal nutrition, especially for an extended period of time such as 3 months. In order to supplement your daily calorie intake, to add variety, or to provide food for more than one person, we offer a number of supplemental products, including food bars, meat packs, fruit and vegetable packs, etc. By combining our kits with these additional products, you can ensure that you have 2,000 calories per day available to you during emergency situations.
You are also backed by a 1-year money-back guarantee. If you would like to return your kit for a full refund, you can send that to the address below.
