BASIC PREP LIST FOR ONE MONTH/ONE ADULT Multiply to get the number of months you wish to prep for.

FluTrackers Members have collated information from a variety of sources to develop a printable, personal preparation list. This is not an exhaustive list. FluTrackers provides this as a service to help others who may not have stored food before. It is a general guideline only. By reading further, you acknowledge that you are responsible to decide your own potential needs, and those of your family and loved ones.

The following items should sustain one adult for approximately one month. The foods chosen require minimal time and resources to prepare, and represent common and familiar food choices for many. You should customize the list to your personal preferences and needs.

Remember to multiply the amounts of each item on the list by the number of adults you are preparing for.
