Kastitäis Toitu Üheks Kuuks

ONE MONTH IN A BOX, submitted by Robert Waldrop

One 20 quart size powdered milk (4 pounds) One 10 lb bag rice Two 4 lb bags beans Two 3 lb bags of macaroni Three 13 ounce quick oats Two 5 lb bags flour One 8 ounce baking cocoa One 4 lb bag of sugar One 10 oz baking powder One 8 oz baking soda One 4 lb jar of peanut butter One 1 qt bottle of syrup 30 miscellaneous cans (soups, vegetables, chili, etc.) One bottle hot sauce One bottle soy sauce 9 miscellaneous spice bottles 2 vitamin bottles One 4 ounce bottle of vanilla extract One 4 ounce bottle of yeast One 16 oz bottle of jalapeno peppers One copy Better Times Cookbook and Almanac of Useful Information for Poor People

I found a 23 inches by 21 inches by 10 inches computer box, and all of above food fit into the box, with the lid folding flat and would fit underneath a bed or table. . The above would provide the following daily servings: (for one person)
2-1/2 cups milk
1-1/2 cups cooked rice
1-1/2 cups cooked beans
1-1/2 cups cooked macaroni
1 cup cooked oats
1 cup flour
4 Tbs. peanut butter
1 miscellaneous can of food
Plus daily sugar and spice

I am not in the business of giving nutritional advice, but it seems that if a half gallon or so of cooking oil, another can per day and a serving of fruit juice (equivalent of another can) are added, which wouldn't fit in this space, you'd be all right for a month. Depending on the assortment of cans, a variety of stuff can be made from these ingredients, including cinnamon rolls, oatmeal cookies, peanut butter cookies, tuna casserole, etc.

This box would fit under my bed.-----------Robert Waldrop
