Food

When a disaster occurs, you might not have access to food, water and electricity for days, or even weeks. Store enough emergency food to provide for your family for at least 3 days.

Food Tips:

  • Avoid foods that require a lot of water, refrigeration or cooking.
  • Choose foods your family will eat.
  • Don’t forget a manual can opener and utensils.

Recommended Foods Include:

  • Ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits and vegetables
  • Canned juices, milk and soup.
  • High-energy foods, such as peanut butter, jelly, crackers, granola bars and trail mix.
  • Comfort foods, such as hard candy, sweetened cereals, candy bars and cookies.
  • Dried foods (select carefully as some have a high salt content).
  • Instant meals that don’t require cooking or water.
