Two boxes of spaghetti. if the power goes out chances are that the gas will go out to or be turned off for preventative purposes. If he a has gas stove and the gas is still on he won't know how to turn the pilot on which is electric. He is helpless and won't know that you can turn the gas burner on with a match. You are supposed to have ready to eat food that you don't need to cook such as canned goods and crackers or bread or fruit or vegetables. iPad if his power goes out that means Wifi and other signals in the area will be out too. I doubt he has much stuff downloaded into the shitty iPad's memory to keep him entertained for more than 3 minutes.
