List of the best survival foods, as ranked by doomsday preppers and food lovers. A catastrophic emergency can happen at any time. Whether it’s a massive earthquake, floods, or riots, it’s important to be prepared with a kit full of everything you need to survive. Of course you’ll need lots of pure bottled water, first aid kits, and other emergency supplies,but it’s extremely vital that you always have enough of the right food stocked in your survival kit. The best survival foods are either non-perishable, such as canned fruits and vegetables, or foods that are easily stored in cool, dry places. Since you can’t guarantee that in an emergency you’ll have electricity, it’s no use to have refrigerated foods in your survival kit.

When creating a survival kit full of food, you need to make sure you have a few weeks of non-perishable food at the very least. The best foods to add to your collection are canned foods, including canned meat, long lasting foods like peanut butter, and staples that can ensure you and your family get the right amount of nutrients like beans and rice.

What are the best survival foods? This list features the top food products you should keep in high supply in your safe survival kit area. If you know of any essential foods for an emergency that aren't on this list of must have foods for survival list, make sure to add them.
