Would a good multivitamin have all of these vitamins?

Yes. Check the label.
Don't forget to plan for plenty of healthy fats in your food storage. Many vitamins require fat to make them usable by the body.
Most of those vitamins are covered with eating a balanced diet of fruit, vegetables, lean meat and sunlight.
yes that is correct, but the original post made the distinction
IF there was a FOOD shortage
If you don't have a blanaced diet to begin with due to lack of food you can have some of these issues.
