How to Pack Food

  • Take only food items you are sure will travel well. Do not take anything perishable. In the winter months, do not take anything subject to freezing.
  • Open boxes of dried or powdered foods such as rice, pasta and cereals should be sealed with tape. Small containers of herbs and spices, condiments, bouillon cubes, gelatin, flavorings, etc. should be placed together in a small box before packing in a large box. Cover holes of shaker type containers and seal with tape.
  • Since canned goods are heavy, the amount placed in one carton should be limited.
