Emergency Food and Food Storage
Get your family ready for any emergency or situation with an emergency food storage solution that you can build yourself. You may have a freezer full of food, but if the power's out and you lose that food, you've still got plenty of meals to keep your family going with dehydrated food, MREs, and other emergency food in your food storage cupboard. You'll also find calorie bars and rations to pack in your car or take along on camping trips to keep your energy up.
Tips about Emergency Food and Food Storage
Food storage isn't only for emergencies! Keep an eye on the expiration dates on this food, and rotate it into your meal planning, replacing old food with new emergency food, so it's fresh if you ever need to use it.

About Freeze-Dried Meals
Out in the woods or taking shelter in the basement, it's simple to get a square meal in a short amount of time. For Mountain House freeze-dried dinners, all you have to do is open up the package, discard the oxygen absorber, and add the specified amount of boiling water. Stir thoroughly, then zip the pouch closed. (Need camp cutlery? Click here for our picks.) Let the meal pouch set a bit. Then open it up, stir, and serve up. You can eat right out of the pouch, or serve over rice or veggies and make a meal you can share with your buddies.
For breakfast, like our Bacon Scrambled Eggs or Scrambled Eggs with Peppers & Ham, it's the same deal, although with less water and less waiting. Don't forget the Tobasco Sauce!
For Mountain House Wraps like Buffalo Style Chicken and Chicken Fajita, cook 'em up in the pouch, then spread the filling over your tortilla with lettuce, or mix in rice or green beans for a nourishing meal.
And Freeze dried desserts - you'll have to check the package! The Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich is ready to eat - no water necessary. To make the Raspberry Crumble, add hot water and stir or shake it up to prepare your yummy dessert on the trail. Enjoy!
Freeze-Dried Food Hints
Play with the amount of water you use and how long you let it sit - just an extra 5 minutes can really bring out the flavor and texture. If you're in a cold climate, wrap the pouch with an extra scarf or shirt to hold the heat in as it cooks.
Whether you are fighting for your life and every calorie counts, or you are just camping for the weekend with your kids, you will need to eat. Consider the option of dehydrated and freeze dried foods, they save a ton of space and keep for almost ever. Delicious choices like hash browns, mushrooms, broccoli, bell peppers, mangoes, and even chicken.
