If you’re reading this email or blog post, chances are you have purchased one or more of our Food4Patriots survival food kits.
Food4Patriots has been our best selling product for several years now, which makes sense. Survival food ranks right up there among the top items we all need when a disaster strikes.
But still, folks sometimes have questions about our food. Such as what are the various kit sizes, how long the food is good for, where the best place is to keep it… even whether it’s safe for their pets to eat.
So, I thought we’d take a look at some of the most common questions people have about our food and answer them right here and now. Here we go:
Q: I have food allergies. How do I know which ingredients are in your food items?
A: Here’s a link where you can download the full list of ingredients for each of our food items: http://secure.food4patriots.com/media/pdf/Food4Patriots-Ingredients.pdf
Q: What are the different sizes of kits you offer?
A: 72-hour, one-week, four-week, three-month and one-year kits.
Q: How long are my Food4Patriots food items good for?
A: A vast majority of them have shelf lives of up to 25 years, so it’s not necessary to periodically rotate stockpiles.
Q: Is it difficult or time consuming to prepare Food4Patriots meals?
A: The food in these kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires only boiling water.
Q: Do I have to store the Food4Patriots kits in a certain way and in a certain place?
A: The food is contained in easy-to-store, space-age Mylar pouches to keep out air, moisture and light. The pouches are tucked inside tough, stackable totes that are discreet and store anywhere – basement, attic, garage, shed, cabin or even an RV. We recommend you store the food at room temperature or below (around 76 degrees F or lower). Temperatures of 100 F or higher may cause the food to lose some of its nutritional value.
Q: Where does the food come from and is any of it genetically modified?
A: Food4Patriots survival food kits are made with food grown, harvested and packaged in the United States. All of the meals are made without any genetically-modified products, preservatives or fillers.
Q: How do I open and view the bonus materials that come with my kit?
Once you’ve downloaded the manuals to your computer, you’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view them. Don’t worry, Adobe Acrobat Reader costs nothing and it’s already installed on most computers. If you don’t have it or for some reason your book still won’t open, please visit www.Adobe.com to download the newest version and install it.
A: Can I choose what goes in my kits?
Q: Because Food4Patriots is a “do-it-for you” preparation solution, out kits are pre-made ahead of time to ship quickly and get you what you need as soon as possible. So, we are unable to individually customize our kits.
Q: I noticed a smell coming from the food totes. What’s that about?
A: Our food is freshly packaged and freshly packaged food always has an aroma for a great period of time. Try wiping down the packages and totes with a Clorox wipe or something similar to reduce those food smells. Each tote has a list of the items it contains below the handle. Also, please be sure to inspect each package. If there are any air or food particles escaping these packages, please let us know so that we may assist you in getting these replaced.
Q: When I want to order more food, I don’t want to watch the entire sales video again. Can’t I just order it?
A: Yes. Please go to the following link to place your order or give us a call at 800-304-4202 and one of our phone representatives will be happy to assist you with placing your order.
Q: Is it OK to give any Food4Patriots food items to my dog?
A: Dogs can safely eat our food (except the chocolate pudding). It’s real, nutritious food. But, like all people food, we caution the overfeeding of our food to pets. You need to be very aware of serving sizes, which are measured for adult humans. Also, remember that dogs by their nature have a higher protein need than people, so be careful with your choices. That said, our freeze-dried meats are wonderful choices for every member of your family – including your pets.
