Easy Meal Food Service makes bulk emergency food preparation and storage simple. From power outages to severe storms, our disaster food solution ensures your organization is prepared to tackle any situation.
History of Easy Meal
Easy Meal first launched in 1977 as a service for the elderly and homebound. Since its inception, the label has gone through several changes to meet changing market demands. In 2013, Easy Meal made its way into the residential health care market, which we still cater to today with easy-to-prepare entrees, sides, and beverages.
Put to the Test
For over four decades we have been meeting the evolving nutritional needs of people living in the harshest conditions. In 1966 we began collaborating with the U.S. military to create the next generation of rations. These new rations had enough calories for active soldiers, were lightweight, better tasting, less heat-sensitive and more versatile. Over the years improvements have been made to create the longest lasting, shelf stable products available for all branches of the military.
Bringing the Best Together
These technological innovations have been applied to a host of commercial products including our signature brand, Mountain House. It is the number one brand of backpacking food in the world, used by backpackers, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts for over 45 years. The brand is also a leader for long-term storage and emergency preparedness. Mountain House’s success stems from the fact that it tastes great, is lightweight, compact and easy to prepare. It also has an outstandingly long shelf life.
Now, all these advancements are available in Easy Meal. Perfect for large-scale food preparation and storage, Easy Meal is a great solution for institutions that are required to have an emergency food plan such as hospitals, nursing homes, utility companies and similar facilities.

“I am in the Army, deployed to Afghanistan. I missed chow tonight and decided to try a Mountain House meal that my sister sent. I was a little skeptical, but man, it was so good. It was like having a home cooked meal in my tent and all I did was add water. You have no idea how much that means to a deployed soldier, far from home on a cold winter night. Thanks!”
