My apartment lost power for several days and I lost most of my frozen and refrigerated food. Does my renters insurance cover the cost of this food?

“Yes, it actually does cover food as your personal property. If your apartment loses power and the food gets spoiled in the refrigerator, your renters insurance should cover food replacement subject to your deductible.
Be aware that the policy will only cover the food if the power outage was an unforeseen incident, not if you failed to pay your bill and the power was shut off for that reason. “
