Emergencies: Suggested Foods for Your Emergency Kit

When it comes to organizing food for your 3-day emergency kit, choose foods that are nonperishable, easy to pack, and require little, if any, time to cook. You want to avoid salty foods whenever possible, as they can contribute to dehydration, especially if you’re trying to conserve water.

Here's a suggested list:

  • Peanut butter and crackers
  • Powdered soup mixes
  • Powdered drink mixes
  • Instant coffee or tea
  • Whole grain cereal
  • Granola bars or protein bars
  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Canned meats (like tuna, chicken, sardines)
  • Canned or bottled juices
  • Dried fruit
  • Nuts
  • Comfort foods (like cookies or chocolate)
  • Baby food or formula (if necessary)
  • Long-life milk

Keep in mind that it’s likely your power and water will be out, so include a manual can opener and disposable eating utensils. You might also want to consider purchasing a small camping stove to heat water and drinks for your family.
