Recent flooding in the Houston area was devastating. According to CNN, the results included $5 billion in property damage, 123,000 homes without power, 1,000 homes flooded, nine counties in a state of disaster and 1,200 high-water rescues made. Approximately 240 billion gallons of rain fell in the area.
Not surprisingly, it was extremely difficult or impossible for area residents to get to places where food was being sold. Makers of Food4Patriots strongly recommend that people stockpile healthy, good-tasting, non-perishable food for situations in which extreme weather causes roads to become impassable or store shelves are emptied.
“We have tremendous sympathy for victims of the recent flooding in the Houston area,” said 4Patriots LLC Partner Allen Baler, whose Nashville, Tenn.-based company provides products designed to help people become more independent and self-reliant, including Food4Patriots.
“No matter where one lives, extreme weather can come on suddenly and cause blackouts and many other problems, including disrupting the food supply chain. These situations can result in food spoilage or a run on grocery stores, so it’s essential that people be prepared with a supply of non-perishable food.”
Food4Patriots features a wide variety of delicious, nutritious and easy-to-prepare food with a 25-year shelf life. It is sold in 72-hour, one-week, four-week, three-month and one-year kits.
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, space-age Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light, and which are tucked inside tough, stackable totes that are discreet and store anywhere – basement, attic, garage, shed, cabin or even an RV.
“Some folks who purchase Food4Patriots emergency food kits have elected to taste it immediately – many of whom ordered more right away – while others decided to place their food in long-term storage,” Baler said. “Either way, they have food for themselves and their families should contaminations or other food emergencies occur.”
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
