About Food 4 Patriots

By HighYa Staff

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)
  • Lumberjack Vegetable Beef Stew (8)
  • Independence Hall Chicken Noodle Soup (8)
  • Liberty Bell Potato Cheddar Soup (8)
  • Broccoli & Cheese 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)
  • Heartland's Best Mashed Potatoes (16)
  • Mixed Fruit Blend (16)
  • Creamy Beef Stroganoff (12)
  • Louisiana Au Gratin Potatoes (12)
  • Blue Ribbon Cheesy Chicken Rice (12)
  • Frank's Five Star Minestrone Soup (8)
  • Creamy Chicken Alfredo (8)
  • White Cheddar Pasta (8)
  • Ol' 49ers Hearty Chili (4)

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.

  • Got what I ordered

    • New Boston, NH,

    I ordered the HaloXT Flashlights and was very pleased with the item. Best flashlight I have ever owned. This thing has weight and could be used as a weapon if needed. Due to the reviews I read, I checked my account for correct billing and all was good. No funny business noted. I also purchased the free meal (not free by the way), I just want to see for myself the quality of the food, if it lives up to what they say. I have to admit the advertisement is a little out there and has the undertones of being phony and makes me hesitate to order. Had I not ordered, I would have missed out on the Flashlights that I think are truly awesome. I might suggest if there is a fear of ordering...place your order on a credit card that is maxed out. No harm, no foul.

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

    I thought I asked for the free sample

    • Fort Myers, FL,
    • Apr 16, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I thought I was getting a free sample. I got one box and two plastic containers with food. I had been paying on my credit card and wondered why it was coming down. Checked my card and there had been a monthly charge of $99 for the last three months. And then told me there were three more payments due. That's $600! I’m on a fixed income. I talked to them to find out my so much for so little. I looked at their pictures and the prices. I’ve been ripped off. I don’t recommend them. Well, the sample and shipping charge only became $600 plus.

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

    Two days early

    • Ohio,
    • Apr 12, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I haven't tasted anything but I received the package two days earlier than what was expected. Can't complain so far. Hopefully I don't find out it's crap when I actually need it. Came in a nice ziplock type bag. Only thing I can actually complain about so far is that I do not know what is actually in the bag. SO EXCITING. LOL.

    Food 4 Patriots is a joke - they bill and charge your account and you never receive the product. Don’t know why they are still in business. Would not recommend anyone ordering from them. Massive ripoff. Won’t answer the phone when you call.

    Rip off scam!

    • Mobile, AL,
    • Mar 30, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I did not read anywhere advertised that for the 72-hour survival kit that there was a $15.00 shipping charge! After I placed this supposedly FREE offer, my debit card was charged $15.00! I immediately emailed and called by to have my funds reversed and order canceled to no avail. I was contacted ONE TIME via email asking for the confirmation number and zip code - NOTHING! Either they refund my monies or send items to my address, it has been over two WEEKS!

    SCAM!

    Tasted everything

    • Sulphur, OK,
    • Mar 12, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    Upon receiving my Patriot food, I started tasting everything, from chocolate pudding to oatmeal. Not only did I like all the food, so did my husband and my 2 sons! Rarely do the 4 of us agree on anything, but we can together on this! Also, the storage containers the food can in is top notch!

    My husband and I are survivalists. Didn't need conspiracy theories to purchase from Food 4 Patriots. We received our whole and complete order. It is a great product. Anyone can tell today the direction our world is heading to. So it doesn't hurt to be prepared for anything - natural disasters, power outages, or government takeover or invasion.

    Best tasting Survival Food hands down!

    • Rossville, TN,
    • Mar 11, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have tried many different brands of survival food that make a lot of claims on how good the taste is, but I could not work with their products, they were more salt based and just could not get the taste I was looking for.

    When I tried Food 4 Patriots the first time, I could tell the way the product was made I could work with it. I do add and change the product to suit our taste. And that is why I only use Food 4 Patriots now. Every one of the products have exceeded my expectations when I received my first shipment.

    Finding a product that I could use out camping or in emergency situations, we have tasty food that is a comfort when times are bad.

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

    Scam

    • Bakersfield, CA,
    • Mar 8, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I ordered the food and my shipping and billing address was switched. I called and the lady said she would switch it. Almost two months later I still haven't received anything or gotten an email about the status of my order. I called customer service to inquire about my purchase and was on hold for over twenty minutes, I finally hung up and did not talk to anyone. They answer fast to take your order but do not answer customer service for problems. I am very dissatisfied with this service. I'm glad I didn't waste my money and purchase a bigger bundle of food.

    I ordered a Halo XT flashlight for 27 bucks, they took $300 out of my account

    • Colorado,
    • Mar 8, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I placed an order for a Halo XT flashlight for $27.00 I checked my account and $300 was taken out, what the heck! You want to start a war! In their promotion they have you scroll forever, try to go to check out to see what the damage is, no checkout. The DOJ needs to get involved as well as the FBI. Their spokesperson comes off as a good old boy Patriot, what a phony front man.

    Then try to call, you're on hold, no one answers, pathetic customer service.

    Beware, scumbags at work.
