MeThink: 5kg Rice for 2 days Not Enough?

According to this article, yes.

Waiting in line outside a warehouse last weekend to buy government-supplied rice was Julieta Casanova, 60, who lives with her two children and eight grandchildren in Tandang Sora, a slum outside of Manila.

“We can’t survive without rice,” Casanova said. The government rations the rice to five kilograms per person, which Casanova said would last two days.

So if the author of the article is not mistaking about 5kg rice per household or per person, I wonder how someone can eat 1.25kg rice per meal in 2 days? (Assuming 4 meals in 2 days).
