Try a food bank. Ramens are pretty cheap as is a pack of hot dogs. Maybe you can get together some change and get it

You should always have food stored in a freezer ready to be thawed out. Also, always have peanut butter and bread on hand. Many canned goods, as far as soup, tuna fish, and what not. It saves, and also, you have buy bulks of it, so you never run out. 

When things are on sale, buy two or more. I think i have at least a months worst of food in my freezer as far as  meats from a meat truck, frozen fish sticks, frozen veggies.
