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)

  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.

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.

    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?

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

    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!

    Food 4 Patriots food products and water filtration system

    We have tried some of the food products, and my children were very delighted with the taste. It was amazing to see how very quickly food and water flew off the supermarket shelves in Houston due to hurricane Harvey. It made me think of Food 4 Patriots and their unselfish and tireless efforts to bring quality food and other vital products to everyone who's smart enough to make use of the opportunity to acquire them.

    I am extremely happy with the water filtration system. I tested the water and found it to be alkaline. I left my results on the dining table for a few days, and I was so happy with it. Thank you, Frank, for your hard work and passion that's resulting in the confidence and inspiration my family and folks around the country experience as we continue to use the products.

    Excellent product

    Having ordered various special combo-packs as well as several three-month food kits, we've sampled most everything that has been offered. Preparation is easy, and the food is quite tasty. Though most of our stock is being held in reserve for times of disaster, our stock comes in handy when life gets really hectic, there's been no time to make a grocery run, and we need to fill in with something hearty and flavorful until we can get to the store. We do have to be cautious about not adding too much salt, but even the sodium levels are lower than comparable products offered by other companies.

    Survival food security

    I would never have planned ahead. Food 4 Patriots changed that. Having a supply of food that does not spoil for years allows me to relax. I do not have to worry where we will get food if a disaster occurs. We have an adequate supply of great tasting food should that ever happen. Removing that stress and putting my mind at ease is worth every penny. Thank you!

    Everything I purchased in general - no qualms

    Frank Bates and Team are by far the finest group of survivalists I've had the opportunity to purchase quality products from. Frank is a no BS kind of man, he tells you what you need to know, and backs up his statements with the products he provides.

    I've tried other survival sites, and have ordered from them. Frank's products thus far are superior to the other guys.

    Food 4 Patriots is my only go to source for survival gear, food, water, protection, advice, solitude, and confidence that I'm getting the best band for my buck in preparing for the uncertain future. If only Frank sold commodities like silver and gold! I would look no further.

    Thanks, Frank and 4 Patriots Team!

    Easy and tasty

    I was skeptical about survival food at first but decided to try something new. My order arrived as promised and I was impressed with the storage tote, easy to store (stackable), and after reading the directions, it was easy to prepare.

    I tried the "Franks five star minestrone soup." I'm no cook, but I can boil water. At first, when I opened the package I was disappointed with the volume, it didn't look like enough for four servings, but once the water was boiling and I added the ingredients, the pot filled up with a lot of soup. The taste was bland, but you realize you just salt/pepper to taste. Some people cannot take salt/spices because of health issues. After seasoning to my taste, the food was very good.

    I have since ordered a year's worth of supplies and get the 72-hour and three-month supply whenever the Food 4 Patriots family has their "FREE" just pay shipping and handling offers. I have also purchased the solar generator, Alexa Pure filter, solar water heater and Alexa Pure water filter, bottle and straws, etc. I can't say enough about their products, that's why I call them my Food 4 Patriots "family."

    Preparing for lack of food and electricity

    First, know that I retired over 22 years ago, never been married and live alone about three miles from the closest city. Ever since I retired, I have been accumulating storable food and jugs of water.

    Since getting involved with Food 4 Patriots, I have studied their instruction books, purchased many boxes of their non-perishable foods, and I bought their solar system, which is set up on my deck on the south side of the house.

    Right now I have adequate supplies for any kind of disaster, and my special thanks to everyone at Food 4 Patriots.

    Food 4 Patriots products

    I just want to let folks know that the products I've purchased from Food 4 Patriots are real and of good quality (a six-month supply of emergency food packages and the Alexander water purifier with extra filters). The food kits are professionally put together, and shipped and received as promised. I have not eaten any yet as they are for emergencies. The water from the Alexander water is excellent, and now I'm actually enjoying the water I drink.

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