Are you given food to cook from your Squadron to take or do you need to buy your own food for DofE?
Generally you are expected to be self-sufficient on DofE. That includes deciding your own individual or team meal.
What would I bring then?
things like rice, pasta, stew, curry. avoid tins where possible because of the extra weight and bulky litter. Porridge is great for breakfast.
Thank you so much
Your DofE leader or supervisor should cover cooking and food for DofE as part of your pre-expedition training, so I wouldn't worry too much.
You would be expected to prepare your own menu as part of a DofE expedition.
