Recipes for Disaster: An Emergency Preparedness Cookbook

Cover for 'Recipes for Disaster' cookbookIn March 2012, APHA's Get Ready campaign announced a recipe contest unlike any other. The challenge? Create a delicious meal that can be prepared without electricity or cooking gas. We got dozens of entries for our Emergency Stockpile Recipe Contest, and we prepared and tasted them all!

Get Ready announced the winning recipes in April 2012, but we didn't want to stop there. We were so inspired by the creativity of the recipes that we decided to create a whole cookbook.

"Recipes for Disaster: An Emergency Preparedness Cookbook" (PDF) is now available — and free! It's filled with recipes, food and water stockpiling tips and even checklists to help you shop for your emergency stockpile.

Download the cookbook (PDF) today, so you'll have it when the power goes out tomorrow!
