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 78 reviews and 10 complaints. 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.

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)

  • 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)
  • Liberty Bell Potato Cheddar Soup (20)
  • Southwest Enchilada Soup (16)

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.

  • Shipping cost on free 72-hour kit whose total weight is 39.94 oz.

    I have received several "Free 72-Hour Food 4 Patriots Kits" via emails recently. What you are told is you must pay the shipping and handling. Not until you are on the order page do you see the $14.95 shipping and handling cost for a free $27.00 value Food 4 Patriots Kit. If you go to Food 4 Patriots internet site to order what you would pay for, the site states that shipping and handling is free.

    The free kit is three bags; one of eight servings of oatmeal and two of four servings each of the two soups, weighing a total of 39.94 oz for the 16 servings advertised. 72 hours is three days, and that is nine meals for one person and 18 meals for two persons (oops, each person is going to miss a meal). With two people there would be six breakfasts, so someone will be eating oatmeal for lunch or supper.

    To pay 55% of the value of a physically small item for shipping and handling is not just shipping and handling but some other charges.

    A 72-hour emergency food stash needs to have those three meals each for each person in the household, not a random number of servings. A default minimum number of persons set that would set the number of servings. The previous Food 4 Patriots Kits had four servings of four different soups but no oatmeal for breakfast.

    Enough said. This entire 72-hour plan is poorly defined, and the shipping and handling charge is grossly out of the realm. I purchased from Food 4 Patriots previously but not under these terms and conditions.

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

    Erroneous Advertisement for Free Trial Offer

    • North Carolina,
    • Jul 23, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    “Claim Your Free 72 Hour Kit, and only pay shipping.”

    That is not what happened in my case. I was charged the full $27.00 for the trial kit. 3 attempts to contact Food4Patriots people for resolution, including Frank, have gone unanswered.

    Some Patriots, ey! You think?

    The food may be good. Therefore if we like it, thank goodness we can go directly to the My Patriot Supply folks to make an order since this is where the meals are coming from in the first place. It's my opinion the Food4Patriots site is an affiliate program just for marketing, taking orders and receiving commissions on those orders.

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

    Excellent product and service

    • Florida,
    • May 9, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    We have taken advantage of the special $9.95 online samples and received them in a very timely manner. My wife and I have shared them and found the food to be very tasty and nutritious. Since we are on a fixed income and live in Florida where the weather here can be sunny and pleasant one day and stormy and foreboding the next, we try to always have a backup supply of foodstuff on hand. Our Food 4 Patriots have always been there for us and are never a failure.

    It is never disappointing, and we have eaten several different items. We would recommend their products based on these known personal facts.

    I can't believe what I read! I have ordered several packages from Food 4 Patriots and never did I get overcharged, or did I feel like they used scare tactics. The claim that we should be prepared is just common sense. Terrorism is real, and we shouldn't panic, but prepare for the worst, and work to better America.

    Terrible rip off, charged $500 for 10 orders

    • Maryland,
    • Feb 27, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    After the funny ordering screen scared me, I was smart enough to check my bank as soon as I ordered.

    After you add your credit card number in, it gives you like five pages of deals for 100's of dollars, and then when you click "no thanks" six times, the order is placed, then one minute later my bank said it was a $500 purchase.

    I called, and they did refund it right away, but even as furious as I was, he kept trying to scare me into buying food by saying "don't let a mistake cost you your life." Don't order the 72-hour package.

      Amanda Carden, Customer Service Manager

      Hi Robert,

      We are really sorry to hear this happened. This is not the usual experience of our customers. I am glad our customer service department took care of this by refunding your money immediately! If you'd like, please email me at amanda.carden@4patriots.com with your information so I can investigate what may have happened. We do offer upsells after the 72 hour kit is ordered but the customer must click to agree to those upsells for the larger purchases to be placed. I'd love to make this right for you!

      Best,

      Amanda Carden

    Food 4 Patriots is sustenance worth buying.

    • Nebraska,
    • Feb 20, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    After getting great info and emails from Frank Bates in the Survival Family System, and knowing that I need to begin prepping (but I am on a very tight budget), I decided to try the Food 4 Patriots three-day food supply and the Snack Tub with a variety of snacks.

    I opened the banana chips to sample them, and they are delicious. Of course, I am saving the three-day supply and snacks in the event of needing them.

    Thank you, Frank Bates, for introducing me to something that is able to save me and my family. This is worth the investment.

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

    • Verified Reviewer

    I have ordered numerous products from Food 4 Patriots. These include 72-hour food supplies, three-month food supplies, the vegetable and fruit combo, the Alexa Pro air and water purifier, etc.

    Every product I have received from Food 4 Patriots has far exceeded my expectations. The food tastes great, and all of the other products have performed exactly as stated. I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to add these items to my long-term supplies with an occasional meal here and there to enjoy the quality of the food.

    I will continue to add items to my prep from Food 4 Patriots. Keep up the good work Frank, and thank you for your products.

    72-hour kit

    I have tried the Granny's Potato Soup and Liberty Bell Potato Soup with great results, especially Granny's Soup, to which I added ham pieces and more cheese for a delicious tasty treat. My family really liked it.

    I have also tried the Chicken Rice, but the rice did not cook through. I will try again as it may have been something I did wrong. I have purchased the one-year kit but have not tried that yet.

    This is by far the best survival food I have ever tasted. Hearty, satisfying, and great tasting. We order the 72-our kits about once a week just to eat! My favorite is the Blue Ribbon Creamy Chicken Rice. My wife loves Grannys Homemade Potato Soup. It's really that good!

    Thank you Food 4 Patriots for providing this awesome food!
