Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are 4Patriots Survival Food Kits?

A: 4Patriots Survival Food Kits consist of pre-packaged high-quality, dehydrated survival food rated to last for 25 years, packed in secure, lightweight, waterproof storage totes. You can order a 1-Week Kit, 4-Week Kit, 3-Month Kit, and a 1-Year Kit of survival food. We also offer several kit add-ons to boost the nutritional value of your stockpile.

Q: Where can I go to get other customers' real opinions on 4Patriots products?

A: We host a website where many of our customers have left honest reviews about their purchases for you to see. You can find it by clicking here.

Q: I don't have a credit card, can I send a money order or check?

A: Yes! Simply mail your order to us at:

1204 Elmwood Ave
Nashville, TN 37212

Q: Can I order the 4Patriots kits if I live outside the USA?

A: Due to the sheer volume of governmental red tape involved for international shipment of food products through customs, we are only able to ship the 4Patriots food supply kits to customers residing within the USA or Canada.

Q: Can I use Paypal?

A: Not at this time. Please check back with us.

Q: Is it safe to buy online?

A: Buying online is absolutely one of the safest ways to shop! SSL Certificates authenticate our identity, and encrypt the information visitors enter on our site. This keeps thieves from "overhearing" any exchange between our Web page and another computer. When an SSL Certificate is installed, you can rest assured that the information you send is secured and can't be viewed by cyber crooks.

Our SSL certificate enables the browser and Web server to build a secure, encrypted connection. The SSL "handshake" process, which establishes the secure session, takes place discreetly behind the scenes without interrupting your shopping experience. A padlock icon in the browser's status bar and the "https://" prefix in the URL are the only visible indications of a secure session in progress.

All 4Patriots checkout pages are secured with a Symantec Class 3 EV SSL Web Server Certificate. Transactions on the site are protected with up to 256-bit Secure Sockets Layer encryption. Encryption means that all data transmitted is scrambled so even if something went awry, it would be meaningless to any unintended receiver.

We use a third-party credit card processor that meets the strictest international standards for data security to manage our credit card payments, so no one ever has access to your credit card information. We do NOT keep your credit card number on file.

Q: How do I open and view the bonus manuals?

A: 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 to download the newest version and install it. You'll need a video player like Quicktime (available here for free) to watch the videos. If you still have problems, please contact our customer service representative at

Q. Where is your food made?

A. Our food is made in an FDA approved and inspected facility right here in the United States. We source US-grown ingredients and the entire food production process happens right here in the good ole US of A!

Q. Some of your food contains Autolyzed Yeast Extract. I’ve heard this is the same as MSG.

A. Autolyzed yeast consists of concentrations of yeast cells that have been allowed to break up so that the yeasts’ own digestive enzymes break down their proteins into simpler compounds, essentially turning the yeast into a pre-digested protein. When added to food, it is considered a nutritional supplement. While it is technically possible to chemically create MSG from the various components of autolyzed yeast, this is not a normal procedure because there are much easier and simpler ways of creating MSG for commercial use. None of our food has been exposed to radiation or contains any added MSG, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, or ingredients that have been genetically modified. While salt (sodium) is a natural preservative and is found in ALL survival food on the market, we pride ourselves on having some of the lowest sodium levels in the industry.

Q. Where can I find the ingredients/nutritional information for each food?

A. We are pleased to provide you with a full list of each and every ingredient used to make our foods. We have even included the full nutritional information as well. Download the full list here.

Q. What is the shelf life of 4Patriots Survival Food?

A. Our survival food is designed to last 25 years on the shelf. With proper storage, it may be good even longer! Your survival food will last longest when in stable, cool temperatures… away from moist air.

So for best results, always protect your food from heat, air and moisture. Avoid prolonged exposure to temps above 75 degrees F. And keep your food sealed until you’re ready to eat it.

Q. What is the calorie count per day?

A. Our kits are based around servings. Instead of laying out meal plans for people, we allow you to consume as much or as little of the product on a daily basis that meets their individual needs. The time frames (1-Week Kit, 4-Week Kit, 3-Month Kit) is just a standard guideline and the food may last you a longer or shorter period of time depending upon their consumption and what other foods you may be supplementing into your daily diet from the regular pantry.

Because our food doesn't contain unnecessary fillers or high sugar contents, the calorie counts are inherently less than you will find in most store-bought food. The difference is that you are enjoying wholesome ingredients that your body recognizes and processes as “real food.”

Q: What is your return policy and instructions?

A: If for any reason you're dissatisfied at any time during the first 365 days after purchase, simply return the product and ask for a full refund. You'll get your money back. That's a firm promise and commitment. Please see this page for full return instructions.

Q: How large are these kits and will I have enough room to store them?

A: Absolutely! All totes are designed to be able to stack nicely and can be stored in your basement, garage, or conveniently in a kitchen cabinet. Totes are water-resistant, sturdy, and the perfect solution for long term storage.
