Fast food prices are rising significantly and some are pointing at the government’s support of corn-based ethanol as the reason. Food4Patriots recommends sticking with healthy foods, both for consumption now and in emergency food kits.
Food prices are rising – especially fast food prices – and according to a number of media outlets, the blame is being placed on the government support of corn-based ethanol.
Forbes.com reveals that the bushel price of corn has more than tripled in the past decade. With 40 percent of the corn grown today going into fuel tanks, there is less available for traditional corn-based food products and feed for farm animals, which drives prices up. Lisa Ingram, president of White Castle, says that their cost for beef has increased by 47 percent during that time period.
Food4Patriots (www.Food4Patriots.com), the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, believes that an unanticipated crisis could result in food shortages, higher food prices and poorer food quality.
The company, which launched a product line in July 2013 that includes 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits, has sold more than 13 million servings since then. Food4Patriots recommends keeping nutritious foods stored in case of an emergency.
Natural disasters such as Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy have proven that people need to have plenty of food and water stockpiled for long-term emergencies, while tornados, wildfires, floods and other crises have illustrated that people also need short-term supplies of food and water.
The food in these emergency kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and require nothing more than boiling water. They’re kept in easy-to-store Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light. Shelf lives are up to 25 years.
Among the nutritious foods that are part of the Food4Patriots’ 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency kits are:
• Mountain Man Granola • Apple Orchard Oatmeal • Granny’s Homestyle Potato Soup • Blue Ribbon Cheesy Chicken Rice • Ol’ 49ers Hearty Chili • Creamy Beef Stroganoff • Frank’s Five-Star Minestrone.
Those who order one of the Food4Patriots Emergency Kits will also receive four reports: “Top 10 Items Sold Out After Crisis,” “The Water Survival Guide,” “The Survival Garden Guide” and “How to Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half.”
