Food Pack

With any multi-day expedition, the food can be the most difficult and time consuming aspect. It's a lot to take on for any one person, and generally requires a bit of experience. With the Moe food pack, this process can be as easy as:

  1.  Pick one of our menus or build your own

  2.  Paint us a basic picture of your preferences

  3.  Leave the rest to us!

Being the trip of a lifetime, the last thing you need to worry about is the quality of your food.  Our local vendors pride themselves on offering only the finest, and our team's attention to detail will allow your group to enjoy the river, not worry about the logistics.

Why Moe Food?

Our quality ingredients, buy-local focus, and attention to detail ensures quality menus every trip.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will Moenkopi offer just a foodpack for our group and nothing else?

Historically, these have been the most difficult requests to fulfill. In order for us to provide a foodpack, we need at least 2 rafts rented from us. We will also need to discuss and confirm that you have enough storage capacity for what you order.

Can you accommodate specific dietary restrictions?

Absolutely.  We are set up to accommodate a wide variety of dietary restrictions, and can work with you on your specific needs. (Learn more)

Is your food packed day by day, or "pantry" style?

Throughout many years of experimentation, we have come up with a system that is simple, user friendly, and flexible. Your dry goods for each day will be packed into 20mm rocket boxes, which will then become your trash receptacle each day. Your coolers will be sorted and packed into meat, dairy and produce. Bread, chips, and other bulky goods will be packed into the captain's boxes.

Can I choose a "Tried and True" menu, and then make changes?

From time to time, we get this request.  We can accommodate this request to an extent, but making significant changes will be considered a Build Your Own menu and is subject to an additional $2/person/day.  The basic guidelines for a Tried and True menu are as follows:

  • You may make up to 2 meal substitutions or changes per menu (from our Complete Meal Options list).  Changing more than 2 meals will incur the $2/person/day cost.
     

  • Each Tried and True menu may come with 2 premium meals (steak / fish meals).  Additional premium meals are subject to additional costs.
     

  • Each Tried and True menu may come with 2 pre-made, boil-in-a-bag meals.  Additional pre-made meals cost $8/person/day.

How many people can your food pack accommodate?

Our food pack can accommodate up to a full sized permit of 16 people. We do have a minimum number of 6 to utilize this service.

We are also happy to work with groups who have an exchange with varying numbers of people over the course of their trip.
