This is my opinion of the usability of this product. I'm not a fanatical prepper, just someone who wants to live through a natural disaster. So I have been "prepping" for a few years...
This is only a 20,000 calories bucket. If you're an average male, you need around 1500 "balanced" calories to stay healthy. If you only need to stay alive for a week or two, this will be fine. Anything past that and you'll start having vitamin deficiency issues. Though obviously staying alive and hungry for 30 days is better than being dead after 2 weeks. Even at 1500 kcal/day you're not going to be doing much active work. If you need to gather wood or perform other manual tasks you will need calories on top of that 1500.

Deal comparison:
I bought the ARK buckets from Costco on sale for $99. Link is for comparison, not a price deal.
https://www.amazon.com/Chefs-Banquet-All-purpose-Readiness-Servings/dp/B005A15YUU

2100 calories per day for 30 days. Deal price is 630 kcal/$.

Even at full price, the Chef's Banquet is a marginally better deal at 420 kcal/$ vs this deal which is 400 kcal/$.

However, some protection is better than none, so if this is all you can afford, buy it! If you have a few 100 to spend, look for a better deal.
