Last time (well, only time) I sat out a hurricane, I filled the chest freezer with jugs of water (on top of the food already in there) a couple days before the storm hit.

I cooked some food ahead of time, too, so I had hard boiled eggs and roast chicken.
Power was out for three days, but everything in the freezer stayed solid. I used some of the frozen jugs to keep the fridge chilly.

When power came back on, I refroze all the jugs and passed them along to people whose power was still out.

I had a barbecue but didn't use it. I don't mind cold food.

Just remember to have a manual can opener!

I had to double check to make sure I still had mine ...

I used to like canned pears at room temperature. Peaches, too.

After a visit to Portugal I've discovered canned fish beyond the usual tuna & salmon. Some brands there put top-shelf cooked fish fillets into cans with olive oil & it is delicious. I've started buying canned sardines, tuna fillets, smoked trout, etc & really enjoying them not only on sandwiches or crackers but also with pasta & olive oil or with a salad. Trader Joes has a decent selection.

Spam is pretty good right out of the can. Vienna sausage. Pork 'n' beans. Any canned fruit. And, as others have said, the ever-popular Velveeta.
