I think you'll save a boat load of money if you go with bulk rice and beans, especially if you want to feed a family for any length of time. You can pack away some spices, a spanish/mexican cookbook (ebay/amazon) and hundreds of pounds of rice and beans for about $100. Aldi's has pinto beans for .65$/pound and Sams has rice for 20$/50pounds. Sams was getting $13to$14 for 50 pounds just 6 months ago. So get it now.
The same $100 would only get you a couple days worth of food but since you asked about prepacked meals I have eaten my share of mre's too. Despite the horror stories, the newer ones are not to bad. I'd say on par with any frozen microwave meal. I hiked some of the AT years ago and I can't remember which brands of civilian food we carried, but it wasn't much better than mre's.
