This is permitted provided that no haram would be done. So for example, a Muslim may not go to a haram environment like a pub or club. Let us say the Muslim even goes to a normal restaurant but then his non-Muslims colleagues consume alcohol; he would not be permitted to sit on the same table as them in which alcohol is being drunk at.
If however they go to a restaurant and there is no drinking alcohol on the same table, and the food is halal, then there is no issue and it is permitted inshallah.

storing food as precaution during disasters in itself is allowed and it could be also praiseworthy if the intention is to share it with others in times of hardship. However different situations call for different ways of dealing; for example it wouldn't be correct to store extra-food for ourselves while others cannot afford, or barely afford, basic necessities. In such case we should try to give priority to the needy, kids and elders in difficulty and offer our help to them if and when needed.
With prayers for your success.
