You can't run generators and UPSs with food. With gas [or diesel] you can. When Lexington was without power for 8 days due to an ice storm a few years ago, I snagged 25 gallons of fuel quickly. It kept my generators running which kept the refrigerator, furnace, lights and essentials up and running for me and two sets of elderly neighbors.

Food, that can ship in pretty quick.
