Well I have 2 chest type freezers a and a refer/fridge combo and another one coming in a week.
Mine have raw chicken done up with a food saver, hamburger done the same way.
There is ham and bacon also about 20# of each, in a month it will be cold enough to leave stuff outside.
One freezer is outside and will not draw electricity for five months.
A third of one chest is filled with meds of all sorts that are needed here plus SHTF stuff.
Some fish, vac packed and frozen commercially, I don't eat it myself.
There is 30 pounds of butter in the freezers.
Both of our diets consist mainly of chicken and rice, that is what there is the most of in there, chicken.
1 fridge is full of pheasants and beer, 1 fridge is full of food (we buy milk 4 gal at a time), 3rd fridge is full of juice, mt dew, and seeds.
1 freezer is full of burger/steaks 2nd freezer is waiting to be filled with the 3 buck tags we get to use in a few weeks..

If it's natural disaster - the power can go anytime. But if its unrest - I suppose we'll have a few days before it goes (if it does).
In case of power outage, try not to open your fridge door as often. The same rule applies that we should eat what would spoil first.
I assume cured stuffs like bacon and ham can last longer. If it's winter - and if temperature outside is lower - then shift everything
we can to that lower temp.
wait til you southerners try to do summer in GA or AZ without A/C..

In terms of what is in our freezer... There is 1/2 a steer and a bunch of pork and who knows what else in the freezers. I have no idea what is in the refrigerator as I am not allowed in Mrs Inor's kitchen anymore since the last time I attempted homemade bread without Mrs Inor's help. (The aftermath of that was a bad couple of days in the Inor household.)
In terms of keeping things frozen in a no-power situation, we have the largest ammonium nitrate plant in the SW United States about 20 miles from where we live. If it gets bad I can easily get a couple hundred pounds of ammonium nitrate and make all the ice we would ever need.
