Start with the 5 essentials "C's" of survival:
-Cutting tool = Mora Knife
-Combustion = Fire Steel
-Container = Widemouth metal bottle & metal cup
-Cordage = 200' Paracord & 1000' of bank line
-Cover = Any type of Tarp, Tent, shelter...

2) Small propane stove/heat source.
3) Water/ or source of water with a way to purify.
That should use all of $50 I'm sure. You won't last long enough to REALLY need food if you don't have the others.
