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)

  • Blue Ribbon Cheesy Chicken Rice (8)
  • Granny's Homestyle Potato Soup (8)
  • Traveler's Stew (8)
  • Southwest Enchilada Soup (8)

  • Broccoli & Cheese Soup (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.

    Awesome

    • Houston, TX,
    • Feb 16, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have been purchasing for the past few years, and yes, the drama sale can get old. But I have always received my item without delays and with good communications. When I called about a question, they were very polite and helpful, and yes, I have tried several of the items with no issues. Much better than having MRE's.

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

    Not received my order yet

    I ordered on January 24th, 2018. I emailed them on February 8th (I believe it was). I got an answer the next day telling me the warehouse was behind because of so many orders. They also said it would be here on the 13th of February. Then I also got a shipping notice saying the 13th. So, we will see. It sounded like a reputable company. I'm hoping they are just behind.

    Have not gotten my order

    I ordered food from this company on January 22nd, and they have not delivered it. They take your money, and you don't get anything in return. On my bank statement it says "Food4Patriots.com 08007280008 tn 37212."

    Food 4 Patriots

    On January 11, 2018, I ordered their 72-hour food kit and my credit card was charged immediately. After two weeks I still hadn't received a thing, so I decided to send them an inquiry, which was on January 26th. The next day I received an answer from them stating that my order was "being shipped that day, sorry for the inconvenience."

    I feel that they should have given me a free package no additional charge for that inconvenience. I've read about similar complaints after I had placed my order. I can see how senior citizens could be ripped off by the way their website ordering process is structured. You have to scroll down past at least six screens of sale pitches before you can exit out of the website!

    Below is their hokey promotional statement once you place your order. No wonder they forgot to ship my order with all the "partying" they were doing when they received my order!

    "When the intercom crackled to life, the buzzing of the warehouse floor came to a sudden stop, and the voice in the box said:

    “Listen up, people! We got a new order for a 72-Hour Survival Food Kit going to Remington Steele.

    But no one could hear the rest of the announcement over the thunderous applause. Confetti rained down from the ceiling. Champagne bottles popped. And tears of joy were shed."

    "Simply put, your order caused pandemonium because we are so thrilled to share our delicious, easy-to-make survival food with you."

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

    Not received my order

    I had some concerns about not receiving my order in a timely manner, that is in the timeframe I was led to believe. After reading some unflattering reviews, I'm skeptical that I might ever receive them. Disappointed that I was not more careful and feel I might have been scammed.

    Still waiting - buyer beware!

    My order is not as late as some of the people posting. I saw one that goes back to October 2017. I ordered the first of the year and get emails stating they aren't sending my order yet. Just because some folks rate a 5 is uplifting, but still doesn't mean that this isn't a scam.

    Maybe those of us who are not getting our orders need to get together and get some legal entities involved. Please post and I will get this going. I have asked in several emails if I could get a ballpark date and they won't respond to any of my emails.

    BUYER BEWARE.

    Food 4 Patriots

    I have ordered from this company several times (10 to be exact) and have never had an issue. I have spoken to customer service on different occasions about the price for the 3-month package and was told to always call or check the website for deals, and I have always saved $100 on each purchase using a promo code. I would definitely recommend this to all my friends.

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

    Great idea

    I had no trouble with this company at all. Everything I ordered came in a timely manner, with everything intact. I will be ordering from them again. This is not a scam just a business.

    As advertised

    • Charlotte, NC,
    • Oct 30, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I noticed the Food 4 Patriots ad on Facebook. I typically stock enough freeze-dried meals to ensure that my wife and I can eat for a couple of weeks if the lights go out.

    Although the ad was based on doom and gloom marketing, I appreciate the need to prepare so that we're not behind the 8-ball in a natural disaster. I took advantage of one of the smaller offers plus the free 72-hour kits. I was a bit skeptical about my decision, but the items hit my front porch in less than a week.

    I haven't opened any of the meals yet, but the ingredients look quality, and the amount seems sufficient. I'm going to plug in a five because they have delivered as advertised.

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

    Have not received order.

    I get LOTS of "buy more," however, I ordered an item in September and still have NOT received it. I finally found a number to call. But, of course, there is no answer. I cannot buy again without getting the item I have already ordered. Would you?

    Food for emergencies

    I bought one of the food packages and opened a few to discover for myself whether the food was edible. It was tasty. I had received my order promptly and was surprised how good it was. When I opened the strawberries, a delicious aroma smelled like fresh strawberries. I am not a "survivalist," but I bought this because blizzards, tornadoes, and other emergencies can cause general food shortages. I will be prepared!

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