Bruschetta's longevity depends on the recipe, how it's stored, and the ambient temp. Vinegar will help it last longer. If kept cold in the snow it will last much longer than if carried for a few days in the sun in a dark backpack.
+1 to the many good ideas. My additions:
-corn chips (crushed to save bulk) are a high calorie staple for snacks and meals
-sliced meats (ham beef turkey etc) in 12-16 oz vacuum packed pouches are available in any grocery and keep a long time if unopened. Use half a package at lunch and add the rest to the soup at dinner
-soup base consisting of dried and crushed (for fast cooking) beans/peas, parboiled (instant) rice, thin pasta/rice noodles, corn chips
