Travel Pantry

Include Food in Your Travel Bags

A travel pantry consist of those healthy food items that cannot be easily acquired during travel.

Depending on how long you plan to be on travel and your mode of transportation, your travel pantry will vary in side. For example note the following compartments:

Air  & Train Travel

 Use a portion of your carry on bag. For checked bags use a section of a suitcase. A plastic bag to keep things organized and protects your clothing from spills and leaks. You might also use a shoe box or lightweight plastic container which works well for storage of your items during your stay away from home.

Auto Travel

Cold Storage Container

Room Temperature Storage Container

These items will come in handy and reduce the number of stops for snacks and food, saving you time and money.

Campers & RVs

Nap sack, cold storage and room temperature storage

The purpose of the travel pantry is to provide continued access to those items that are hard (sometimes impossible) to come by when you are away from home.
