When getting ready to camp it is good to get food that will last for long periods of time. Canned foods are good to start with because they will last for weeks and weeks if still closed. Other good foods are bagged foods like rice and beans. Equipment like ice chests are good to keep drinks and other foods like cheese that need to be kept cold. Before going, you might want to find out about the water. Otherwise, you should bring your own drinking water. Some fruits that don't need to be kept cold are also good to bring for example, apples and oranges. When cooking for larger amounts of people, it is easier to cook in large pots because they can make more food in less periods of time. Other things like veggies and bread are easy sides to cook.
