When cooking isn’t an option, J&M® shelf stable meals are your go-to source of nutrition in the event of an emergency, around the campfire, or for on-the-go travel. Each fully-cooked, ready-to-eat meal is packaged in a convenient microwaveable tray, or a flat and easy-to-pack foil pouch.

Emergency Rations

Unfortunately, more today than ever before, we all need to think about Emergencies, Disasters and keeping our families safe. The US Government and Non-Government Emergency Preparedness groups are good sources for recommendations of what to do and what items to keep in an emergency preparedness kit in case of a disaster. We highly recommend you visit their websites.

In the event of an emergency that may affect the food, water, and/or power supply for an extended period of time, our full cooked meals can keep your family fed during a crisis. In a pinch they can be consumed at room temperature.

As part of your emergency preparedness plans, keep some J&M® tray meals or food pouch shelf stable meals readily available at home, school and work.

Be sure to rotate stock so you consume food items coming close to expiration dates and replace them with a fresher supply throughout the year.

Meals always taste better hot, so if you can reheat them, the aroma of a delicious meal will waft in the room bringing some calm and familiar normalcy to the situation.


In the event that your hunting or fishing excursion does not yield the expected results, consider bringing along some delicious J&M® shelf stable pouch meals.
