This is what the Red Cross recommends
This is something I keep meaning to do as well. I plan on writing the expiration date for the foods on a piece of paper that I leave on the top of the kit and then when it gets close to expiring, donating those items and then restocking. My husband has a camp stove and I plan on buying granola bars and canned foods. We rarely eat canned food so that is why I will donate them before they expire rather than just throw them out.
