First choice I would say to just get more food.
But, if you're desperate..
You can give the betta little bits of food like raw shrimp or worms you find, but very little, and if he doesn't eat it, remove the pieces. Tuna fish, little bits of fish fillet, you can try soft vegetables like a cut pea..

In their native habitat Bettas eat mostly insect larva. If you have any containers outside with standing water in them check for mosquito larva - Bettas love them.

For my crown tail betta, once a month I feed him a pea, just for variety. Boil it first. Remember to remove the shell and cut the middle up into really fine flake (it will expand considerably when dropped into the water.)

That should get you though a day but should just get more food.

I have dropped spiders (big as a dime) in my betta tank just to see why my betta will do. He would eat them! I usually feel bad for the spider after a few mins of my betta nipping his feet! So remove and move them to my garden.

You should go look at my blog about culturing insects. I don't have the link, so sorry.

Lol, exactly. I mean, I usually boycott Wal-Mart, and their quality of food options is usually low....but it's better than nothing. My bettas love peas

In defense of Wal-Mart, I was out of ciclids pellets at 6pm on a Sunday, and of course all LFS are closed and PetCo/Smart too. I was cringing thinking I'd have to buy Aquaculture or Tetra, but!!!! LALALALA!!!! Hikari was there! I'll try not to panic about the lady bagging a customer's fish in a Ziploc bag. And with no air, either. :/ I didn't even LOOK at the sad bettas. Double

Bettas can last a week or more without food, but try to get your food as fast as you can. For subsitute meals, I recommend peas, our misquito larvae

Please try not to answer very dated questions. The last post in this one was 5 months ago. When you post on an old thread, it pushes newer questions off the front page and may well cause those questions to go unanswered.

Thanks,
