My girl friend has a house in Annapolis. We can eat out of stock there for a month. We have a lot of food because we shop at Sam's Club. Everything gets rotated.
Even with a small generator to keep sump pumps, freezer, and fridge going we usually end up on the boat when the power goes out. More water, more fuel, a goodly supply of food, fridge, freezer, cooker, Internet, VHF and HF radio for marine and ham, diesel genset I can run for well over a week with fuel onboard.
If conditions don't allow for the 10 minute drive between boat and house I can anchor in a creek near the house and dinghy/walk 1/2 mile.
The biggest hole in our plan now is gasoline for the gas generator at the house. I only have 10 gallons (rotated) plus whatever is in the truck (36 gallons full).
sail fast and eat well, dave
