MREs (Meal, Ready-to-Eat) are prepackaged food rations developed for the United States military in field operations or in situations where food is either scarce or unavailable. It is an evolution of the original MCI (Meal, Combat Individual) portable food ration during the 1950s that consisted of canned foods. MREs came into existence in 1981 and used freeze-dried and dehydrated foods that were able to withstand extreme temperatures, vibration and impact damage, as well as and extensive shelf life. MREs were used by American soldiers on the battlefield and have been distributed to locals during times of natural disaster. They have since become available for civilians to store for survival preparation. ESLSupply.com now offers MREs and survival food packs for both short term and long term usage from the leading names in survival food such as Mountain House, Survival Cave, and UST. Freeze-dried snacks, foodstuffs, and even complete meal packs are the perfect solution for staving off hunger when resources are unavailable. Bring them along on camping trips, hiking outings, fishing trips, extended stays in the wilderness, or store in your home in case of emergency or natural disaster. Full breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, and snack packs are available in an expansive menu of entrees and dishes from macaroni and cheese, beef stroganoff, rice and chicken, spaghetti and meat sauce, beef stews, sweet and sour pork, fried rice, raspberry crumble, chili, breakfast skillets, and more.
