Are MREs dehydrated or freeze dried?
No, the meals are fully hydrated and unlike dehydrated foods no water has to be added to prepare the food for eating. Meal Kit Supply’s entrees and side dishes are “ready to eat".
Are vegetarian MREs available?
Each Meal Kit Supply case contains up to five vegetarian meals. Currently, the Vegetarian Ratatouille, Vegetable Lasagna and Apple Maple Rolled Oats are three selections that fit this category. Complete nutritional and ingredient sheets are available for further assessment of special dietary requirements such as allergies. For non Meal Kit Supply MREs, please refer to the menu attached to each product page.
Are MRE meals full of preservatives?
The meals are preservative free. By fully cooking the meals and sealing them in three layer retort pouches that are thermally stabilized, the nutritional goodness, full flavour and natural juices are maintained. This results in the prolonged duration shelf life without requiring refrigeration.
Will you ship overseas?
No. We will ship only inside the United States.

How many MREs will I need for my emergency food supply?
Meal Kit Supply recommends the consumption of 1-2 MREs per person per day (between ~1,200 and ~2500 calories per day). This means a Meal Kit Supply case of 12 MREs would provide a full 6 days supply of food for 1 person. Alternatively, 1 case would feed 4 people well for 2 days. A basic emergency preparedness kit should contain 1 case of MREs and 1 case of bottled water to ensure 1 week of nourishment for 1 individual.

All Meal Kit Supply and other MREs sold on our site are made by a US Department of Defense contractor and all food components are US military MRE ration components. These meals are the closest you can get to Military MREs without breaking the law! U.S. Government Property, Commercial Resale is Unlawful.
Are there gluten-free MREs? What about other allergens like sugar and nuts?
Our products are NOT guaranteed nut, sugar or gluten free. Wheat, sugar and nut byproducts are found in some meal items.
What is the shelf life of an MRE?
Five years, assuming they are stored at a temperature of 70°F or cooler (but never frozen, as freezing can damage the retort packaging). If stored at a higher temperature this will be shortened.
