My Own Meals, Inc. offers a fully-assembled, 1200 calorie ration comprised of a main course meal in a long-life pouch, assembled with brand-name, off-the-shelf accompaniments. Each complete ration has the nutrients required to sustain an active soldier, firefighter, emergency responder, or other highly-stressed individual. These nutritional standards are issued by the US Surgeon General. While the My Own Meal® main course meals in 227g foil pouches have a shelf life of many years, the fully assembled rations do not. The MREs and rations are not designed for storage but rather for use within no more than one year.
MRE’s (Meals, Ready To Eat) , Rations, Emergency Responders, and Humanitarian Relief
My Own Meals, Inc. created My Own Meal® MREs to supply to the Department of Defense with its demand for humanitarian rations, kosher rations, and to meet surges in demand as needed. Components in the My Own Meal® rations are commercial products in commercial packaging with brand names you know. Unlike standard MREs which are produced and then stored for about three or more years before being sent to our men and women in the armed services to eat in the field, My Own Meal® kosher US rations are assembled and shipped to sailors, soldiers, airmen / women, marines, and emergency responders to enjoy right away. We maintain a ready-to-ship inventory for immediate response to reduce the need and taxpayer costs for long-term government storage inventories.
All My Own Meal® kosher and glatt kosher certified US rations meet US Surgeon General nutritional requirements for an individual active soldier’s field use and have approximately 1200 calories per ration, or 3600 calories per day (three meals per day).
Emergency MREs, Rations and Meals
My Own Meals, Inc. sells its meals and rations for disaster-relief efforts throughout the world wherever kosher certified food items are required. These same meals and rations are also available to respond to emergencies when shelf-stable, fully-cooked meals are needed, irrespective of kosher requirements. Meals and rations are delicious, brand-name items which bring comfort to those in need.
An inventory is maintained as a state of readiness so be sure to inquire as the current “Best Used By” date of eh inventory at the time of your order, especially if shelf life is important to your purchase decision.

C. Best Used By Date – How to read a lot code:
Every case of kosher certified rations has two codes printed on the side of the Master Case.
The first code is the date assembled and reads as: “PACK DATE: DD MONTH YEAR”. The “DD” means the day of the month it was packed. “MONTH” is the month it was packed and “YEAR” is the year of the pack.
The second code is the Best Used By date. It is coded as “BEST BY MONTH YEAR”. This month and year is the date by which we recommend consuming the ration. While some of the components inside the master case may have a later Best By date printed on its packaging, including the My Own Meal® main course meals, we use the earliest Best Used By date for any one of the components inside that case to establish the “Best By” date for the entire assembled ration.
D. Special military ration assembly.
International governments and governmental agencies seeking rations in a different configuration may send their request to us directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We will evaluate the request and respond promptly to your inquiry.
