Most of the advantages of Bear's Den Hostel are well noted.
Mentioned is limited resupply for hikers.
Just how limited? Just snacks like candy, protein bars?
fruit? dried packaged meals, Knorr. pb, jelly, bread?
Anything to build a decent meal later on the trail?

And just how available are any meals or foods at Blackburn Center?
There are stories of hikers coming out of a rainstorm to be feted with a hot meal, yet this seems to be an exception.
