$45 Emergency Menu Feeds 5 people for 1 week - Emergency Menu Shopping List

Let me start by saying that this is an Emergency Menu. An Emergency Menu is meant for people in a Emergency situation. There are people who could not fathom what it is like to be in a situation without food, but it happens. AFullCup is a great resource for coupons to use with this grocery list.

Turkey- Fully cook Turkey and stuff with 1/4 of the celery heart, onion,salt and pepper.**Remove all the meat from bones and portion it in 1 cup servings.** Do not skip this step. Baggies work well. If you do not have baggies, put it in regular cups and cover it with a grocery bag or tape. There should be atleast 6 cups, maybe more. Save the bones,neck, and giblets for the Turkey&Dumplings Soup(you will need to strain the soup after boiling).

Water Based Ham- Cut into 4 Large Sections

Milk- There are 16 - 8oz servings. I suggest adding some water 1/4 of the way thru to stretch it to make 20 servings. That is 4 days of milk for 5 people.
~A side note: Milk freezes well, if you have an extra gallon, throw it in the freezer until you need it. We sit it on the counter to thaw.

Snacks will be Leftovers
