Assuming your appliances and utilities continued to work, how long could your family survive on the food in your house if there was an unforseen event in the middle of the night where you could not leave the house or shop.

  • At least 2 weeks, and that's with needing to go grocery shopping soon in the next day or two. If we had to, I could make it work.

  • Probably 10 days

  • Well I just went grocery shopping today, so if you mean how long could we go without starving....I'd say at least a 3 weeks to a month. That's with eating sandwiches && ramen noodles && stuff once all the meals that I have are gone.

  • embarrassed

    a day or 2

    we don't keep food in the house because I'm the only one who actually stays here and the kitchen is a mess. Hopefully that will change when the baby gets here.

  • I'd say 10 days to 2 weeks, as long as we had access to water still. We'd be eating a lot of ramen noodles and mac n cheese though.

  • Hm......right now....maybe four days. including all the ramen noodles, cereal, and canned veggies (gross, but if i was starving, I'd eat them).
