Emergency Food Storage

Long-term food storage is an important aspect to consider when building your emergency food supply. Not only do you want foods that will last in the long term and provide you with the proper amount of servings for your group, but they should also be easy to store, too.

Our meal kit kit packaging features a compact design that’s filled with our tasty freeze dried foods and can be stacked on top of one another to maximize space. Thanks to their lightweight construction, these kits are easy to lift and move around to meet your specific space needs. And, thanks to the long shelf life of 10 years, these meals can be stored away until needed.

Easy Meal Storage Information

For best results, store Easy Meal food kits in a cool, dry location. Our products are best stored between 32-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Long-term storage at higher temperatures can impact the flavor of our products (up to individual taste preferences), however, they’re still safe to eat.

The Easy Meal Deluxe Kit, which can feed 25 people meals for three days, weighs only 111 lbs and takes up just eight cubic feet of space. To prepared the food, all you need besides the kit is water, no other supplies necessary.

Easy Meal entrees, breakfasts and vegetables are a great option for those who are concerned about saving space.

Below is more information specific to the size and storage of Easy Meal entree and accessory packs:
