Wildfires. Flooding. Drought. There’s no question that the need for preparedness has been escalating due to extreme weather and natural disasters in recent years.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 15 individual weather and climate disaster events exceeded one billion dollars in losses since the start of the year through July 2023. This is the highest number of billion-dollar disasters ever recorded for the first seven months of a year since NOAA began tracking in 1980.
In times like these, it’s never a bad idea to ensure you have what you need ready in case of unexpected emergencies—food being one of the primary necessities.
For those seeking a hassle-free shopping experience, Backpacker’s Pantry has introduced revamped pre-built emergency meal kits for three, seven, or 14 days. These thoughtfully crafted kits ensure a well-balanced diet with the right blend of carbs, proteins, and fats, and are available in meat, vegan, and vegetarian variations.
The new custom meal kits bundle breakfasts, lunches, and dinner entrees, offering an easy preparedness solution. You can also curate a personalized selection of meals for your emergency preparedness from each category and save 5-10%, depending on the quantity.
Our new emergency meal kits are a game-changer in the industry. Not only do we provide the convenience of three, seven, and 14-day pre-built kits, but for the first time ever, we’re empowering our customers to create their own custom kits tailored to their dietary needs. Whether you prefer meat, vegan, or vegetarian options, this adds another layer of security, preparedness, and personalization all in one package.”– Duane Primozich, CEO, Backpacker’s Pantry
Backpacker’s Pantry’s freeze-dried meals boast an impressive shelf life of up to 10 years, providing reliable and nutritious sustenance for those critical moments when conventional food sources are unavailable. Each meal comes in waterproof pouches, making them ideal for emergency kits, and can be prepared with just boiling water. We use them for camping, too.
These new emergency meal kits complement Backpacker’s Pantry’s existing lineup of best-selling single-meal options and 6-pack entrees, featuring choices like Pad Thai, Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken, and Three Cheese Mac & Cheese.
Check one thing off your emergency preparedness list with these freeze-dried meal kits. Once you have the essential items, be sure to consider what other unique needs your family might have, such as supplies for pets or seniors.
