Anyone familiar with this and the kits they offer? I tried to do a search but it isn't working on my phone. Is it legit and will it store up to 25 years? Any input would be great! Thanks!

I looked at that link and they do not seem to have any actual links to the food you can buy.

Seems more of a buying program than a storefront operation. If the food is good enough as they claim then why can't you just buy a single container to try it out?

Then you have the blog and that direct connection to Power4Patriots scam.

It's all part of a money making scheme that so-called conservative talk show hosts get a kickback in exchange for advertising. They make money preying on your fears. Kind of like all of those gold coin buying and reverse mortgage advertisements you hear on those shows. They are selling a solution to a crisis they drum up, not simply a product that people want.

The best emergency food companies were in the business long before prepping was popular. They were in the basic food preservation business, not emergency food business, and there is a distinct difference.

You want emergency food? You are at the right place. Hundreds of unaffiliated buyers of LTS food here to share their insight on price, quality, and longevity on most of the major LTS food outlets. Just ask for the brands people recommend here and why they like them. You will get more responses than you could ever want.

For any food storage proposal, compare the cost for say 2,000 calories per day with that of say sacks of rice and a variety of beans. For stored add-in's, we've bought some stuff from:

Seriously, do it.

Mountain House foods are excellent. If you don't want to buy online then Walmart, Sam's, Costco sometimes in some areas carry it.

Good luck! You've found the path to self-sufficiency. Follow it.

Thumbs down Fraud Alert: Food4Patriots.com

Fraud: Only a dismal 675 calories per day (in their 3 month package). Why calories per day is never mentioned anywhere on their website? They don't want you to know. This is a horribly calorie deficient product. I did the calorie counting math in a speadsheet. At 1500 calories per day (between 1200 just survival, and 2000 for active people), your 3 month supply will last only 40 days.

I know it SHOULDN'T still be surprising me, but it never seems to cease amazing me that people can sell stuff like this and then get a good sleep at night.

They are potentially talking about people's lives being entrusted to the stuff they are supplying, yet all they seem worried about is making a buck.

There MUST be some way to hold such places accountable isn't there?

I did buy 4 weeks worth of food from them. The container appears to be waterproof and the food looks fine. However, I did look at the contents and pulled out some mashed potatoes. They taste fine but there are 4 servings in the packet at 93 calories each. Considering you use up 3 servings per day, the amount of calories is horribly deficient. I'm out $197 so it's not a total loss. At least I didn't buy their 1yr supply at $1,797. It is really a 4 month supply so the cost is actually higher if you compare with Mountain Foods which comes at 2,000 calories per day. Be warned folks. I should have known when they mentioned the Wounded Warrior Project which is another scam.
