  • Canned goods (especially stews and soups)
  • Bottled water (should be 1 gallon per person per day, should last for at least 3 days)
  • Cereal
  • Snacks like cookies and crackers in sealed packages
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned salmon and tuna
  • Canned vegetables
  • Hard cheeses (wax sealed)
  • Jarred sauce and dried pasta
  • Nuts
  • Dried fruit
  • Energy bars
  • Jerky
  • Coffee, hot cocoa mix, and tea
  • Shelf-stable juice
  • Paper towels and toilet paper
  • Eggs
  • Bottled water
  • Week supply of your prescriptions

  • Pet food
  • Lots and lots of board games & books

Other than your kitchen, please include these things in your emergency kit
