About Food for Patriots
Food for Patriots, found online at Food4Patriots.com, is a company which sells survival food kits to people who are looking for nutritious food packs which can withstand long periods of storage, in case of an emergency.
The video presentation promoting Food for Patriots is done by Frank Bates, a man from Tennessee, who says that he started his survival food company to help people become more self reliant, more independent, and “ready for anything.”
The reason why he has started promoting the purchase of survival foods online, according to this video, is because his friend “Matt” received a letter from FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which he claimed made lots of inquiries about the number of survival food kits he had and how quickly they could be shipped somewhere.
Matt and Frank Bates interpreted this letter to mean that there is an imminent threat to the United States that people should be preparing for, even though stockpiling emergency food supplies is part of FEMA’s job and is something they have been doing since they were established as a government agency.
In addition, Matt, from MyPatriotSupply.com, is seemingly the only person to have ever received this letter. All “news” and blog articles having to do with FEMA questioning makers of survival food originate from a single quoted source – Matt.
Food for Patriots says this is because Matt refused to sell to FEMA whereas other food companies have likely agreed, and he and Matt want all the good people of America to have access to these food kits, not just the people that FEMA chooses.
This is an interesting claim, because at the beginning of the video Frank Bates says that he will only sell kits to 2 out of every 100 people who view the video, and only if these people agree to his requirements: that you do not discuss this video with anyone.
If you do publicize or discuss this video on social media, he says that your computer’s IP address has been recorded while you are viewing the video, and you will be punished by not having access to his survival food kits.
Customers who are still interested in purchasing food supplies from Food for Patriots can do so in three different kit sizes: a 72 hour supply of food for $27, a 4 week supply of food for $197, and a 3 month supply of food for $497.

4 ‘Food for Patriots’ Reviews
I placed an order in November 2013. When I entered my credit card number supposedly it was invalid. I was requested to reenter, when I did I was automatically increased to double what I ordered and was not allowed to decline or confirm. I tried several times to contact the company to correct this. The order was received but I continued to call but was never able to speak to a person. There was no way I was going to pay for shipping back their mistake. Finally I called my credit card company to dispute the charges, they stated they would investigate. In the meantime I was finally able to reach "Heather" after waiting for a half hour on the phone, I think they hope people will hang up after waiting so long. "Heather" claimed the call is sent to her after the second ring and she was free the whole time and could not understand what was going on, she would report it. After telling her my story she said she would have UPS pick up the order without any charge to me and send out the corrected order. So sorry for the inconvenience. No thanks, don't bother, this was a scam and I didn't want any part of it!! Needless to say, the charge was refunded and the product returned at no charge to me. Be careful out there!
They got me
I ordered some of the free tomato seeds and then also purchased the 72 hr food kit . The seeds came and the food didn't although it had the same tracking # that at 1st I didn't realize . when I informed them I did not receive my kit I was told by Lisa another would be sent . after a week I contacted them and then was told by Lisa she would look into it . they took my money and obviously decided against sending my 72 hr kit . now all responses fall on deaf ears I am so glad it was just the small package and im out about 35 bucks . but I will continue to blog and complain to any and all I can . just aint right the internet is a risky place to business especially with folks like Frank . In my opinion there scammers and thieves out to help no one but themselves.
I made an order on Nov.4, 2013. Paid with my visa card and NEVER heard from them again. When I called their 2 phone numbers, got a recording on both, "You have reached a non-working number." So what else does that mean but SCAMING RIP OFFS! Thieves and LIARS are what they are. If I'm wrong, call me BACK and I'll appologize.
Scammers of the first degree.
I've never had my Mac hijacked before. The site I was viewing was suddenly replaced by a full-screen hysterical ad for food4patriots.com.
I couldn't get out of it; there was no way to get to the QUIT function. I finally had to power down my computer to get rid of these whores. If there is some Federal agency out there that nails internet fraudsters,
I hope they catch this bunch of pukes.
