Tips to Help Prepare for a Disaster

Here are some tips about what food to pack in a disaster kit:

  • All food items need to be shelf-stable
  • Select items that are nutrient dense and calorie packed
  • Ready-to-eat items are ideal as they may not require use of utilities such as electricity
  • For kids, try to pack items they are familiar with
  • Don't forget the manual can opener
  • Store food in a waterproof and easily manageable container/s so that you can travel with it if necessary
  • Review and update supplies as necessary
