About Food 4 Patriots

Based out of Nashville, TN, Food 4 Patriots provides food preparedness kits that include three meals per day, in 72-hour, four-week, and three-month options. The company was founded by Frank Bates, who also operates Power 4 Patriots and Survival Seeds 4 Patriots¾and just like with these other sites, the catalyst for forming the company was the realization that the government is plotting against him, and a major disaster is looming just around the corner.

As part of the Power 4 Patriots group of companies, Food 4 Patriots holds an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau, which is based on a total of 35 closed complaints within the past three years. From a customer satisfaction standpoint, there appear to be a limited number of legitimate online reviews. However, the most common complaints we encountered during research were failing to receive the product, and poor customer service.

How Food 4 Patriots Works

All goods contained in the Food 4 Patriots kits are manufactured in the U.S., and are claimed to be delicious, free of GMO ingredients and chemicals, and easy to store. According to the company’s website, none of their food is freeze dried or dehydrated¾instead, they use a “unique “low heat dehydration” method” to dry the food, which is then added it to high-efficiency Mylar packaging. When taken together, this is claimed to keep it fresh for up to 25 years, while also locking in all the essential nutrients.

Food 4 Patriots kits come in three different types:

72-Hour Kit – A total of 16 servings of food, which include:

  • Lumberjack Vegetable Beef Stew (4)
  • Blue Ribbon Chicken Cheesy Rice (4)
  • Granny’s Homestyle Potato Soup (4)
  • Traveler’s Stew (4)

4-Week Kit – A total of 104 servings of food, which include:

  • Apple Orchard Oatmeal (16)
  • Mountain Man Granola (16)
  • Powdered Milk (8)
  • Lumberjack Vegetable Beef Stew (8)
  • Independence Hall Chicken Noodle Soup (8)
  • Liberty Bell Potato Cheddar Soup (8)

  • Heartland's Best Mashed Potatoes (8)
  • Blue Ribbon Cheesy Chicken Rice (8)
  • Granny's Homestyle Potato Soup (8)
  • Traveler's Stew (8)
  • Southwest Enchilada Soup (8)
  • Frank's Five Star Minestrone Soup (4)

3-Month Kit – A total of 356 servings of food, which include:

  • Apple Orchard Oatmeal (40)
  • Mountain Man Granola (40)
  • Powdered Milk (32
  • Broccoli & Cheese Soup (24)
  • Traveler's Stew (24)

Regardless of which Food 4 Patriots kit you choose, each order also comes with six free bonuses:

  1. Top 10 Items Sold Out After Crisis – Tells you how to obtain the top 10 items you must hoard as cheaply as possible, and store them in a safe, secure location.
  2. The Water Survival Guide – Instructs you how to locate emergency water supplies, as well as how to properly store it.
  3. The Survival Garden Guide – Walks you through indoor and outdoor gardens preparation, as well as the processes required to store your vegetables for the long-term.
  4. How To Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half – Provides you with “down-n-dirty tricks” to reduce the amount of money you spend on groceries.
  5. Survival Tool
  6. Seed Vault

Food 4 Patriots Pricing & Refund Policy

Food 4 Patriots kits are priced in three different packages:

  • 72-Hour Kit = $27, or $11 per day
  • 4-Week Kit = $197, or $7 per day
  • 3-Month Kit = $497, or $5 per day

All Food 4 Patriots food kits come with free shipping and handling.

If you’re dissatisfied with your Food 4 Patriots products, they are covered by a 60-day money back guarantee, less return shipping and handling charges. If you’re unsatisfied for any reason within the first 60 days, simply ship the products back to the company (at your expense), along with your order confirmation number, or the email address you used when ordering. Your card will then be processed the full refund, and you will not be assessed any sort of restocking fee.

With this in mind, at the end of the Food 4 Patriots home page, it also claims to offer a 300% guarantee if you open your kit any time within the next 25 years and find that your food has gone bad. Although, the likelihood of someone cashing in on the guarantee is slim to none, when you consider the circumstances that would have to be present for you to want to open it in the first place.

Bottom Line: Is Food 4 Patriots a Scam?

Just as with the Power 4 Patriots and Survival Seeds 4 Patriots sites, Food 4 Patriots continues to use scare tactics and a “conspiracy theory” mindset to cause you to make an emotional, uninformed decision. In addition, the company’s long form sales letter on their home page even goes so far as to make you think they don’t want the “word getting out,” and that if you tell too many people, they’ll give your food to someone else. Furthermore, they make numerous unsubstantiated claims about FEMA contacting the company, and that the government is planning to hoard all available emergency food stockpiles.

So, bottom line: Should you purchase a Food 4 Patriots kit? While we couldn’t find any legitimate online reviews about the quality of food contained inside, there is wide speculation that it would have to be relatively low in order to be offered at such an inexpensive price. In addition, there are numerous online complaints claiming that the company did not send products after they had been purchased, and that customer service is fairly poor. With this in mind, if you purchase a product from Food 4 Patriots, you may want to begin with one of the less expensive kits. If all goes well, then you can always purchase more.

    No problems

    I've ordered one month and three month deals from Food 4 Patriots. Absolutely no problems. I do what I'm supposed to do, they've done what they were supposed to do. Good working relationship. Yes, I would recommend them.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Looks Good

    • Vacaville, CA,
    • Nov 28, 2016

    I saw the TV commercial about the free 72-hour kit, just pay the shipping. I went for it. Yes, right after hitting confirm on the order page they send you the sales video with "Great Offers".

    That's very annoying BUT, if you did sit for the 3-4 minute video, they did give a link to opt out of great offers and only send the free kit.

    I got my kit in about 5days. So far I tried the Chicken Rice, not bad. I hope I don't need it, but it is in my "Oh Crap" closet.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    No Way, Jose!

    I bought $500 worth of the crap they call food. Have you read the ingredients of this crap? I am sorry I bought it, but admit that if I am ever someplace where there is no food I will try to eat it. Hopefully, that will never happen. READ THE LABELS.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Best customer service

    I have ordered several times from Food 4 Patriots. Only 1 time have I had to contact them about an order. I had made a mistake when ordering the offer for the free 72 hour package, just pay shipping of $4.95 each. I ordered 3, for me and my sisters. It was a promotion for Seniors and I didn't realize that it was limited to 1. When I called, explained that I hadn't received the order, they were kind enough to send all 3 anyway. I've never had any problem with them.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Food & service

    • Georgia,
    • Nov 4, 2016

    I have bought several food packs from them, the food taste']s good.

    You get four nice servings per bag. I just ordered more today.

    I have not had and problems with service. Their website, just like many others, lag when you place an order just like it did today yet the order was completed.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Food 4 Patriots is scam

    I tried to order their offer of 72-hr food for only 9.95. It would not let me complete the order to purchase. The site wanted me to buy a 3 month supply. I escaped out but within 10 minutes they had charged my bank $497 and $9.95 twice. I called my bank and am contesting this purchase as I did not order it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Rip Off

    They shipped part of my order. The part I have is mostly oatmeal, I can buy this cheaper at the grocery. They have not replied to repeated e-mails regarding the rest of my order.

    Food kits

    I could not be happier with this product. I originally purchased it for storage. I also purchased these 72-hour kits for my hunting trips, so easy to pack in, takes up so little space.

    The grand kids love them too. When we go to the cabin and they always make sure that they grab one of the 72-hour kits.

    The meat & protein, coffee kits are great.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Food 4 Patriots OK By Me

    I have ordered the product from Food 4 Patriots several times over the past couple of years. I have ordered the 72-hour pack , several 1-month packs, and the 3-month pack. I have not yet had an issue with any of the deliverables. I agree that the "sky is falling" marketing ploy is tiresome and the bait and switch technique used at their website is boring and a waste of time - I just end the browser window.

    I have found that going through other access points has been much more convenient (i.e. preparewithbeck.com). I have found that the conspiracy theory crap is used by many vendors and it does get droll. I wish vendors would simply market to me as though I am an informed adult.

    As for quality, I used one of the 1-week packs when I went to the Tetons last year. The food was pretty good. I cannot speak to the Customer Service people as I haven't had the need to use them.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Good customer service

    I was reading several of the reviews and I wanted to offer my experience. I ordered from Food4Patriots on several occasions. I have ordered several of the 72hrs kits as my budget is limited on what I can spend for this type of item. I did order a one month supply, after waiting approximately 2 weeks I sent an email to inquire about the order. I received a reply from Fank Bates personally and within 3 days my order was delivered FedEx. I have also ordered the coffee pack from them.

    We live on the Gulf Coast. Food and water emergencies are a very real thing. It is not unusual to be without power for two weeks and have a warning to boil water before using. You eat high on the hog while emptying out your freezer but after that, things get tough.

    Grocery stores are closed or open with limited stock. Ask people in New Orleans or the Mississippi Coast what it was like after Katrina or Camille.

    I want to thank Food4Patriots for making me think about the issue to begin with. My wife and I live a little easier knowing that at least today we have a plan and some backup in case things get bad.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
