Gambling with emergency preparedness, or the lack thereof, can be risky business. Augason Farm’s Deluxe 30-Day Emergency Food Supply helps remove the risk of being caught unprepared in the event of an emergency. It’s an affordable 30-day emergency kit with survival food that’s packed with variety, flavor and nutrition. From Cheesy Broccoli Rice and Hearty Vegetable Chicken Soup to Buttermilk Pancakes and Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal, you’ll enjoy three hearty and satisfying meals a day. The kit also includes Augason Farm’s Morning Moo’s milk powder that’s fortified with Vitamins A & D and potassium-rich Banana Chips. The 11 varieties of food provide a total of 36,600 calories. This equates to 1,220 calories per day which aligns with national health organizations’ average recommended daily calorie intake of 1,200. So, you’re covered with nutritious calories (not the empty calories you’ll find with other emergency food brands), flavorful meals and plenty of variety—all packaged in an easy-to-carry and stackable 4-gallon pail. Augason Farm’s Deluxe Emergency 30-Day Food Supply for 1 person provides 11 food varieties, 24 food pouches, 200 total servings, 36,600 calories and an average of 1,220 calories per person per day. The shelf life of up to 25 years means you can store the kit away for a very long time knowing the flavor and nutritional content will be just as good years from now as it is today.

First, the good: The food is easy to prepare. In most cases it's just a matter of boiling water and adding the package contents. The food is also sufficiently tasty. You can't expect emergency food to taste like "mom's cooking", and this doesn't. But the flavor was good and everybody ate everything without complaint, including my daughter (who can be very picky). We liked the potato soup, and my wife liked the maple outmeal--it wasn't too sweet. There is a sufficient variety of food that it won't get too monotonous.
The food comes packaged in tough pouches and a reasonably sturdy, stackable bucket. The food has an advertised 25-year shelf life, and while I'm not going to wait 25 years to verify it, based on what I've seen I believe it.
That said, this food kit makes some assumptions, and how useful this kit is depends on how well your situation fits those assumptions. First, it's advertised as a 30-day, one-person supply, but the pouches contain 8-person servings. So if you purchase this food kit for single-person use, you're going to need a way to store the prepared food and keep it fresh for a day, or measure out the contents of the package carefully (and seal what remains--the pouches are not resealable) to prepare one-serving amounts. Personally, with the 8-serving pouches this looks more like a kit for feeding the family for a week, than one person for a month.
Second, the kit assumes you're going to have an ample supply of water and fuel on hand. This may not be an issue if you're sufficiently prepared, but if you don't have a decent supply of water or fuel on hand (some of the food reauires 8-10 cups of water and 20 minutes of cook time), this kit is useless to you, because you have no way of boiling water.
Third, the kit appears to assume you'll have a working refridgerator! There's one pouch of instant milk (20 servings), the instructions of which indicate the milk should be chilled after reconstitution.
The flavor and variety of these dishes was overall a happy experience and I will continue to make these dishes, both during emergencies and sometimes just for an easy, quick, nutritious dinner. While each of the dishes were quite tasty and very acceptable on their own, a few additions here and there made a huge difference in the “wow factor” of the dish. The hands down favorite in our house out of the entire bucket was the Spanish rice, with a can of spicy beans added to it. A close second was the potato soup, especially when topped with cheese, green onions and sour cream. Another favorite in our household was the buttermilk pancakes. They were light, fluffy and particularly tasty when we added a small handful of dried blueberries to the batter mix.
The least favorites were the banana chips, which were too hard to eat, even when crushed, and the maple brown sugar oatmeal, due to the processed taste of the maple.
As a standard procedure, I added slightly less water to each dish when preparing it and, as a result, did not run into any issues with sauces not thickening or being too thin when finished. Also worth noting is that preparation of these dishes does require a large pan, water and a heat source, as well as water to clean up afterward and a refrigerator or cooler to store leftovers. We live in an area where hurricane evacuation becomes mandatory every now and again, so we make sure that our hurricane preparations are always up to par – especially when preparing for the time period after the hurricane, when power, running water and other niceties are non-existent and/or limited for extended periods of time.
This 30-day emergency food supply should be on your list of things to add to your emergency preparations, especially if you will be feeding four or more people. Excellent variety of meals and flavors. Highly recommend.
