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)
  • Granny's Homestyle Potato Soup (24)
  • Summer's Best Corn Chowder (24)
  • Independence Hall Chicken Noodle Soup (24)

  • Blue Ribbon Cheesy Chicken Rice (12)
  • Frank's Five Star Minestrone Soup (8)
  • Creamy Chicken Alfredo (8)

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 Complaints

    • Carrollton, Texas,
    • Jan 7, 2016

    I have read some of the reviews and I did not experience any of them. I received my order within 10 days and when I opened the containers there was no leakage from any package. As for contacting customer service there was no need to. Correspondence was by email and replies were within a 24 hours. Overall service was very good. If you check the history of what is going on it is not just Food4Patriots but, other organizations as well are saying the same thing. It is not right now but very soon in the near future. Be prepared and you just might come through whatever the next catastrophe might be.

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

    Low quality

    • Dec 31, 2015

    Ordered the 72 hour packets offered through an ad in the NRA publication American Rifleman. The lead in by the rep when I called gave me pause because it was geared at scare tactics and a heavy sell of their other products. This continued even after I gave my CC number and I started feeling a little nervous because I had to repeatedly confirm with the rep that she was not adding other items on to my order. Luckily, the sale went through OK, but I still don't like them having my information now that I've read that they are nothing, but a glorified marketing firm. Shortly after the purchase I started receiving barrages of spam emails, luckily the unsubscribe links seemed to work because I haven't been bothered by them, but I have received two catalogs in the mail so far. I've called them and asked to be removed from their lists and they once again tried to sell me a bunch of stuff.

    Thanks, but no thanks, I'll stick with Mountain House for my long term foods. This stuff is fair at best and very high in sodium and preservatives. I'm glad we only got a couple of the sample packs, because we're going to reserve them for last ditch use or for bartering should there be a need.

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

    Horrible ingredients

    • Texas,
    • Dec 26, 2015

    Hydrogenated oils, even coconut oil. Dye flavor enhancer. Aluminum. I bought this in summer of 2015. Just opened up box to read the packages. I was under impression it was healthy food. OMG, I'm so disappointed and a bit pissed off. I feel ripped off. I'm hoping the water purifier I got from them isn't junk. I feel this is really deceptive. Does not have all servings as stated. Never will buy again, ever.

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

    Tried it, no second purchase.

    • Dec 6, 2015

    We ordered 2 containers from FFP and the outside shipping containers are nice. But, once you open you rethink your purchase.

    Although they say the food is vacuumed packed, it isn't. The smell of maple permeates every other product. All the products tried to date, we have the same opinion: if I were starving we could probably eat it but until then, no. It sucks. Flavors are all off, macaroni, oatmeal, etc. remain hard and tough. I won't ever buy these products again. There are ways to put up normal foods for long term storage, you don't need this junk.

    We complained to the company about the maple flavor and un-vacuumed bags and they pretty much told us too bad.

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

    Yuck!

    • Oklahoma,
    • Nov 29, 2015

    Bought a 3 month supply kit of ready to prepare food pouches. Have tried the broccoli and also the fettuccine. It was so bad my husband and grand children wouldn't even eat it, and they eat everything, especially anything with pasta. The broccoli was really tough and fibrous despite soaking. I also purchased the fruit and veggie container. The banana chips are the only thing that tasted good so far. They claim their food has no MSG, but the ingredients on the package tells a different story. I'm really sorry I purchased this. And to think I trusted Glenn Beck on this.

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

    Terrible service

    • Herndon VA,
    • Nov 17, 2015

    I have tried to contact this place with a question to no avail. Will not contact via email. I am put on hold for long periods of time and no one ever picks up. My bins are sweet and I wanted to know if they will attract bugs. I guess they will because no one will contact me. I question if this is a legit business or not. Next step is to Consumers Affairs.

      I placed an order for four of the 72-hour containers a week before Christmas and have yet to receive the product, despite assurance that they would arrive in seven business days. I ordered your product based on recommendation by the NRA.

      Curtis, I am emailing you privately regarding your order as to not give any personal information on this site.

    Wise up!

    • Rocky Mountains,
    • Nov 7, 2015

    I have some of these containers in my supply. These foods are freeze dried back packing type foods. I have over the past 6 years purchased a lot of these "emergency survival" foods. I also buy bulk rice, beans, spices, canned meats, soups, veggies, fruits, etc. to go with these freeze dried foods. The freeze dried meals tend to have a lot of sodium in them and my plan is to mix small amounts of them with the rice, beans and so on. This is emergency food stocks for a possible SHTF collapse or other major situation. When you're starving, you'll eat it all with pleasure. There are other companies offering organic gluten free foods out there so do some searching. Don't just buy prepared meals, buy supplies of freeze dried meats, veggies and fruits and be creative. Canned food will last a very long time if stored properly. Good Luck

    Nutrient? Really?

    • Los Angeles, CA,
    • Nov 2, 2015

    I love when people say "nutritious". So I decided to take one of their products and look up the nutritional info on. I choose the Maple Oatmeal. 14 grams of sugar? Really? 14 grams of sugar in ONE serving of oatmeal is nutritious? I don't think so.

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