I've seen the videos Creators posted about trying to live for 24 hours in a grocery store or places like Target. That got me thinking. How long COULD you survive in a grocery store? Whether you were locked in or it was your home base in a zombie apocalypse, how long would you be able to SURVIVE with that as your only source of sustenance? Today, I'm going to settle in and find out!

I've been watching for years and love all the channels! But I have a very important question after watching this video. Why didn't Evan make bread? You can make several different types and most grocery stores have cook books in them

There is often canning supplies for water bath canning and depending on the season seeds. He has a compost pile for squash. The boxes will actually turn into dirt. You can cut the bottoms off cabbage, celery bunches, carrots, dry seeds directly off corn cobs, take coolers off shelves and line them with shredded paper to keep root veggies, see if you can raid the vents for added dry material for compost, there are often compost crocks in my store that I would use for fermenting saurkraut, radishes, carrots, peppers, and greens in their own juices, I'd out find if the store had a Ball complete food preserving book, and cheese wax to wrap the cheese in for almost indefinite storage, and rennet for cheese making. I would drop some of the spoilage outside to attract animals and hunt through the open window.

Ok, what sort of grocery stores are these??? Where I live only hypermarkets have those sizes; grocery stores are about the size of a house. No, seriously, other than for the monthly purchase of miscellaneous non-edibles what's the point of having warehouses that big? Isn't it better to just have a quick store a block away?

Can’t he take fruits and vegetables, and soil from the gardening section, and put that next to the open window, and use collected rainwater to grow food for himself, well, forever? Edit: just got to the farming part of the video… Matt Daemon style

with the veggies and fruits, there is definitely enough supplies in a grocery store to make and can soups so you would have that extra 6 months to a year of canned food. as for farming, you can not really take a potato from grocery store and plant it, as they are all sprayed with an ati rooting agent. it would take a lot of work to cultivate potatoes at that rate but there are a lot of veggies and fruits that can be propagated to grow onwards, as a renewable resource some only need water.... and being really resourceful he could take materials from the store and make rechargeable batteries allowing for some items to continue to run on batteries.... extending comfort or shelf life of some items
