Emergency Preparedness Food (earthquake, hurricane, tornado, etc)

I am trying to put together the best earthquake kit food supplies. Does anyone have any recommendations? I do not want to preserve of pickle anything myself, but simply buy pre-made items from the store.

A friend of mine recommended buying a kit from Preppi Survival ( because it already has food supplied. The problem is that the ProBar food bars it comes with, while organic and high quality only have a shelf life of one year. They also include "backup" military Red Cross style biscuits that have a shelf life of 5 years, but those are hardly organic or all natural.

I guess what I am asking is for recommendations with a long shelf life, that are organic/natural, high quality, and don't require cooking... any thoughts!?
