$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

Breakfast Drinks: Hot Tea w/Cinnamon&Sugar or Milk to drink.
Breakfast- Oatmeal with Cinnamon and Sugar each morning.

Lunch Drink: Water
Lunch- Ramen Noodles with chopped Turkey, and baby carrots or celery.
