SEKI Food storage regulations:

Containers are required in the Dusy Basin, Rae Lakes Loop, North Dome and Rock Creek areas from May 1 through October 31.

In areas where food storage containers are not required you may use a food storage box if available. Keep in mind that you must share these boxes with other hikers; locks are not permitted on them. Carry rope for hanging food in case the box is full or you don't camp where you intended. The caching of food and gear in food storage boxes is not permitted within Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

Attention: Food storage containers are required at Kearsarge Lakes. No food storage boxes are available there.

Under "JMT Resupply Option [sic]" add the official U.S. Post Offices at Tuolumne Meadows and at Mono Hot Springs. Both of these will hold a mailed resupply package for free. You can also drop off a resupply at a post office but you may be charged for that.
