We need to feed 3 people who have allergies. Also take into consideration what you cook most of. 300 onions might not be enough for us. I wrote down my favorite recipes and looked at ingrdients too. Change it up a little. Leeks, scallions, green onions, etc.

365 days x 3 people= 1095 servings

Others sites say plan 5 lbs food per person per day. I think this estimate includes meat.

Here's info from:
Sunset’s Vegetable Garden Book (from 1944)
