The Emergency Kit Cook-Off is a fun way to help you prepare for emergencies and showcase your culinary creativity! The Kit Cook-Off challenges participants to come up with a recipe that uses only nonperishable items and manual tools that you would find in your 72-hour emergency go kit. This is a recipe that you would eat and enjoy if you were asked to shelter in place or make dinner during a power outage.
Both personal preparedness and a variety of reality cooking television shows serve as the inspiration behind the Kit Cook-Off. This contest is proof that you do not have to fill your emergency go kit with bland food. It is instead an opportunity for you to show preparedness with pizzazz!
Motivate others with your preparedness example and discover your inner chef through the Emergency Kit Cook-Off. Submit a recipe and visit our online cookbook. Look for our special ingredient challenges in September during our annual Emergency Preparedness Month festivities.
