A Tiny Emergency Food Pack

How many times have you been caught out at meal time and there was no meal in sight (or there were some restaurants/fast food places but they happen to have sky-high prices because they are at venues with a captive audience)?  The answer to this problem is to make a tiny emergency food pack that can be kept in your briefcase/day pack/messenger bag and utilized under these emergency conditions.  Here are some items to include:

  • Your choice of beverage mix: tea bag instant coffee packet, powdered drink mix packet
  • Gum or mints
  • Granola bar
  • Packet of instant soup
  • Jerky
  • Mini-sized candy
  • Small bag of pretzels
  • Small packet of nuts
  • Small box of raisins
  • Packet of dried fruit (apricots, mangoes, etc)
  • Dried fish (like dried cuttlefish found in Asian stores)
  • Nut butter squeeze packet
  • Tiny seasoning packets: salt, pepper, sugar, Tabasco, etc

  1. A baggied load of peanuts, M&Ms and raisons does a pretty good job for me. Also include a few Atomic Fireball jawbreaker candies, those are good 'wake me up' for when you are getting the drowsies. A few folks even like dried shrimp - very salty but a packet fits a shirt pocket very handily. And I like the Pop Eyes Cajun Sparkle packages for seasonings, Tony Cachere's Cajun at home is stockpiled. :^)

    I keep a folded Capri Sun package with top cut off in my wallet for a foldable cup. Just about 10 oz. but enough to gather from a drinking fountain to walk around with or stand in line - I've used it more than a few times in the years I've carried it.

    Good list - thanks.
