    There are reports; unverified, that sanctions in places like N. Korea have forced some people to resort to cannibalism. This may seem like a question that is not normal to ask, but there are instances in history where this kind of thing happened.

    It would be great if we could work out answers to total famine, and there are ways for sure, but I doubt that the resolve exists to implement them.

    So then, in a nutshell, just short of a lunar month. This makes a lot of sense and confirms my suspicions concerning a huge natural disaster like a volcanic winter or major asteroid impact that shut of photosynthesis resulting in mass starvation.
