Easy Prep Emergency Food for Large Groups

Easy Meal makes preparing delicious, satisfying meals as easy as possible. With “just add water” simplicity, our freeze dried meal kits can be made in minutes, even with limited resources.

During a time of crisis, it’s essential to provide your residents with nutritious and flavorful foods, that also provide enough calories to help replenish their bodies. Our easy-to-make homestyle meals are your solution for your emergency plan. With high-quality ingredients, a large amount of total servings per kit, and a 10+ year shelf life, our meal kits are essential for every facility’s emergency food plan.

Our Easy Emergency Food Preparation Instructions

To make an Easy Meal Food Service kit, follow these easy prep instructions:


  • Step One
    Place pouch in cooking compartment. Cut pouch open just below the seal. Remove and discard oxygen absorber*.

    • *Oxygen absorber contains powdered iron oxide to ensure product freshness.
  • Step Two
    Add water according to preparation instructions on pouch, stirring occasionally as water is added. (See Appendix page 21 for list of water requirements by product.)
  • Step Three
    Stir thoroughly.
  • Step Four
    Fold the top of the pouch over and affix the sticker (included) to keep it closed. Let stand according to preparation instructions on pouch. Stir and serve.

These meals rehydrate best with hot water, but cold water will also achieve the same results. With their well-designed storage kit, simply store the meals along with your other emergency essentials until needed. See our FAQ page for more info.

Each Easy Meal kit comes with specific instructions for easy preparation which should be reviewed by employees. It’s important for staff members to understand how the meal kits work beforehand so in an emergency situation, there will be a process in place for food.
