Extreme weather throughout the U.S. and around the world has convinced people that they need to be prepared for a crisis situation. Food4Patriots offers emergency food with a shelf life of up to 25 years.
Nashville, Tenn., United States – April 6, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ —
With extreme weather, mudslides, earthquakes and other disasters seemingly in the news almost every week these days, more and more people are understanding the need to be prepared. Many of them have been victims of power outages caused by storms, or at the very least have read, heard or seen reports about those who suddenly find themselves without food and clean drinking.
Officials at Food4Patriots (www.Food4Patriots.com) learned just how serious people are about being prepared after launching their 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits last summer. Since that time, the company has sold more than 13 million meals to people who want to be ready when the inevitable crisis strikes.
“We knew there was a market for emergency food, but even we’ve been surprised at the overwhelming response we’ve had to our emergency food offers,” said Allen Baler, partner at Reboot Marketing, the umbrella company for Food4Patriots. “It just shows how seriously people are taking the need to be prepared for what comes at them.
“The goal with our emergency food kits has been to provide a nice variety of tasty, nutritious, easy-to-prepare food with long shelf lives, and based on the responses we’ve received from our customers, we’ve achieved this goal. Some people have chosen to taste their food right away – many of whom ordered more immediately – while others placed their food into long-term storage. Either way, they now have food for themselves and their families should a disaster occur in their area.”
The food in Food4Patriots emergency kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires nothing more than boiling water. It is kept in easy-to-store Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light. Shelf lives are up to 25 years.
Among the foods offered by Food4Patriots are:
- Granny’s Homestyle Potato Soup
- Mountain Man Granola
- Heartland’s Best Mashed Potatoes
- Summer’s Best Corn Chowder
- Apple Orchard Oatmeal
- Creamy Chicken Alfredo
- Mixed Fruit Blend
- Creamy Beef Stroganoff
Those who order one of the Food4Patriots Emergency Kits also receive four reports: “Top 10 Items Sold Out After Crisis,” “The Water Survival Guide,” “The Survival Garden Guide” and “How to Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half.”
