If you want to carry fresh eggs, coat them lightly in petroleum jelly (Vaseline?) and store in cardboard-type egg boxes. Invert them weekly to stop the yolk settling and they'll keep in a locker for several weeks even in hot climates. If you're unsure of their freshness check this link for advice
Also, if you have an oven, learn to bake fresh bread, great for the morale and lovely to eat. And keep powdered milk (Nespray), much better than the so-called long life cartons of allegedly fresh milk. I once had a dozen of these turn in one day with widely varying sell-by dates. A few burst and contaminated the entire locker.
