Let's come up with our own emergency kit to use to keep on hand just incase.

canned chicken or fish (I like sardines because they have a peel back lid);
peanut butter (no stir kind needs no refrigeration after opening) and jam;
I don't do fruit juices, but that's also a consideration, as well as sugar free, caffeine free pop. Certainly bottled water should be included.
Obviously, I'm thinking of things which don't need cooking or refrigeration or can be consumed in single servings to avoid refrigeration. I can't think of many canned vegies which I would eat unheated, but maybe a few like corn, beans, peas, corn and I'll even eat uncooked canned spinach ala Popeye.
Also there are many kinds of canned fruit which you might consider (peaches, pears, pineapple, fruit cocktail).
I believe someone already mentioned dried sausage meats.
Ener-G Foods makes some 2 slice vacuum sealed packages of bread or you can even order a sampler pack from them of many different kinds of bread to include in an emergency kit.
Nuts make great high protein, good fats snacks to go with dried fruit.
I didn't mention all the chips and other hi carb snack foods, because I don't like dry carb snacks. However, don't forget cookies.
If you can eat dairy, don't forget chocolate. I almost forgot dairy, because I can't tolerate any, but certainly instant milk or cans of evaporated milk might be included along with dry cereal and sweetener.
I'm running outa ideas here, but I'm sure others can add to my list.

How 'bout genisoy bars? They don't need refridgeration and they're a good source of a lot of vitamins/minerals/protein. PB was a great suggestion -- never would have thought of that. Of course, canned fruit is good.
Tuna? They have those tops like soda cans, so you wouldn't need a can opener.
A lot of the good ideas have already been mentioned, so there isn't much left for me to add.

packages of tuna (Whole Foods has a gluten-free foil package, but cans are fine too if you keep a can opener in your emergency pack)
non-refrigeratored peanut butter
gluten-free bar-form food (there are a couple brands... worth throwing a few in)
I'd put rice cakes in, but I just can't trust them to stay good for six months. :-)

As a thought, I do have a trail mix that my husband can eat. If you can handle soy nuts, it's great.
1 bag of Roasted Soy Nuts. (Not the honey Roasted, contains Gluten)
1 bag of Roasted Sunflower Seeds
1 bag of Chocolate chips (I use Tropical Source 100% Dairy Free Semi-sweet Chips, Dark Chocolate Flavor) These chips work well with baking.
1 box of Dole Raisins.
Mix all together and place in plastic bags. Great for when your on the run and the kids will like it as a snack for lunch. Keep in a cool place. The chips will melt.
