Food Items to Make a Part of Your Survival Cooking Kits

Any disaster can come upon you without warning and you don’t want to be unprepared. So, in case of emergencies it is important to always think ahead and make a survival kit. This survival kit should include food items that will fuel your mind and body.

Below we’ve taken the liberty to create a list of items that you should have in your survival cooking kit if you want to get through these hard times like a champ. 


Starting off with the most basic food item, always remember to stock your cabinets with pastas and spaghettis. They are easy to cook, can be frozen, can be eaten boiled and are yummy! 


If you need a kit then it means you must be going through hard times, and who doesn’t want coffee in hard times? Rule number two is to always keep your coffee stocked or you might get too grumpy.


Dry fruits are a good source of energy and nutrients when you have limited access to food during hard times. The best part is that there are tons of dry fruit options so it won’t get too boring. 

Beef Jerky

This might come off as strange but it is necessary to meet your body’s protein requirements. For that, stocking up on beef jerky is the best option. These are delicious, cheap, and store well. 

Ice cream

You must be thinking that ice cream does not belong on this list. It is junk food, afterall. But ice cream is a good treat that may help to keep your spirits up. It also lasts in the freezer for a long time. 


Stocking up on rice is also wise since you can fashion a lot of food dishes with it. Be it sweet or savory, this is one food item that can help you a lot in the long run. In rice, there is also option of opting for either brown or white rice whichever suits you better. Make sure the rice is fortified, however. 


The above listed items are a combination of carbohydrates, protein, fibers, and even a little bit of unhealthy fats incorporated. Stock up on these items and you’re good to go for any emergency.
