Freeze-Dried Backpacking Food & Meals

Our feather-light, space-saving meals bring global gourmet flavors right into the heart of the wilderness. Gourmet backpacking meals are just a little bit of boiling water and a few minutes away! From mountaintop to lakeside, backpacking food has never been this delicious, and easy.

Whether you’re doing an overnighter or a multi-day trek, backpacking light is the way to go. Packing enough food to fuel your body is vital, but ounces become pounds when you start moving. Our Backpacker's Pantry freeze-dried camping meals are not only lightweight, but also easy, convenient, and ready in minutes- so your food can cook while you soak your trail-weary feet in a cold alpine stream. The way we see it, we’ll take care of feeding your body while you nourish that soul of yours on your path to discovering your deepest nature.

Just add water to our lightweight and nutrient-packed meals, and you’ll have calorie-dense, nutritious freeze-dried camping meals to fuel your hiking, camping, packrafting, river rafting, bike packing, backpacking, and backcountry adventures.

Backpacker’s Pantry takes the guesswork out of meal planning for vegan and vegetarian adventurers, too. We offer one of the largest protein-packed vegan and vegetarian-friendly outdoor menus out there. Backpacker’s Pantry has fueled athletes, explorers, and adventurers for decades, with meals based on real recipes inspired by the world’s best cuisine, like our Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken or Three Cheese Mac and Cheese.
