We have received several questions recently about meal options for individuals with special dietary needs. The most common questions we receive reference gluten free, vegetarian, and low sodium options. At Food Insurance™, our goal is to provide high quality emergency food to everyone. Here is a little bit of information regarding these dietary concerns.
Food Insurance™ offers a 620 serving meal plan with includes 7 different entrée options, 2 drink options, and rice. The Gluten-Free Food Kit has been certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America. To view the Gluten-Free Food Kit, click here.
Food Insurance™ offers a 112 serving vegetarian meal plan that includes 8 different entrée options, and will last one adult for 1-month. Please note that Creamy Chicken Rotini does not contain any chicken. To view the Vegetarian One-Month Food Kit, click here.
All of Food Insurance™’s short-term and long-term meal plan options come in at or below the FDA/USDA recommended sodium intake for an adult. If the recommended sodium intake is higher than your diet allows, the easiest solution is to reduce the entrée serving size, and then replace the reduced calories with Rice, Vegetables, Meats, Drink Mixes and Fruits.
Additionally, most of our breakfast entrées contain low sodium. In time of an emergency, you may want to consider using breakfast entrées for two meals per day instead of one. This will drastically reduce your sodium intake, allowing you to eat a standard serving of one of our lunch/dinner entrées for your third meal.
With a little advanced planning, creating an emergency meal-plan is easy to do for every member of your family, even those with special dietary concerns.
