Gluten-free 72-hour Emergency Kits

Have you ever wondered what gluten-free food you would survive on if there were an earthquake, hurricane, flood, or some other emergency crisis in your area?  It is vitally important that we have a backpack all stocked with gluten-free items.  As part of my preparation for a presentation at a university during their Education Week, I am planning to display a gluten-free 72-hour kit.  Here are the products I have so far:

Progresso Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Campbell's Chunky Grilled Chicken and Sausage Gumbo Soup
Dinty Moore Beef Stew
Bush's Baked Beans (I am going to include a can opener in my 72-hour-kit)
Blue Diamond Almonds
Idahoan Roasted Garlic and Parmesan Flavored Mashed Potatoes (I am going to include extra water in my 72-hour-kit to re-hydrate these)
Starkist Tuna Creations--Zesty Lemon Pepper
Starkist Tuna Creations--Hickory Smoked
Thai Kitchen Green Onion Instant Rice Noodle Soup
Kind Fruit and Nuts in Yogurt  (I am particularly fond of this flavor)

My friend from our support group told me about the following three products that would also work in a 72-hour-kit.  She takes these along when she travels.  I haven't tried these, but they look delicious!

Pamela's Whenever Bars--Oat Chocolate Chip Coconut
GoPicnic--Hummus + Crackers
GoPicnic--Turkey Pepperoni + Cheese


  1. Thanks for the information! It is super helpful. Are you speaking at Eduation Week at BYU by chance?

  2. Your articles are purely enough for me.
