Food for Camping
Grab your gear and prepare your tent because Labor 411 wants you to head for the great outdoors. It’s camping season, and before you soak in the fresh air, fill up your backpacks with some USA-friendly food.
The options are plentiful. You can mix together some old-fashioned gorp (good ole’ raisins and peanuts), bring along a loaf of bread and PB & J, or maybe just load up with a ton of coffee.
Here’s a list of union-friendly, USA-made brands of your favorite camping foods. But be careful, those packs can get heavy!
