For years, the Food for Health International 200 Servings Bucket has been an icon in the food storage industry. (Did you know that Food For Health is credited with being the first food storage company to package emergency food in convenient, easy-to-store, pest-resistant buckets?) Now, Food For Health is branching out and is offering a 275 Serving Bucket. It contains a slight variation in the meals, which are still 100% vegetarian. And for the first time, Food For Health has departed from it’s traditional square bucket shape in favor of a cylindrical shape.
The 275 Serving Food Supply Bucket provides healthy meals that take roughly 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish. Just add boiling water and you’ll be enjoying a nutritionally balanced, 100 percent vegetarian entrée. The food itself is packaged in a weather-proof bucket that is easily stacked to conserve space and contains individually-wrapped portions so you can conserve and eliminate waste.
The food itself scored an overall 78/100 in the Taste category — this is not why you buy this bucket. The food is “good enough” in our opinion and will provide adequate nutrition in time of need. It is, however, an affordable package with one of the highest price-per-calorie scores awarded on this site – 90/100.
