The stress of dealing with a crisis that involves stores running out of food and water will be intense. Food4Patriots officials suggest storing nutritious foods rather than focusing on snacks.
Oct 11, 2014 /prREACH/ -- As Americans are getting used to a diet that includes an increasing percentage of snacks, Food4Patriots strongly recommends that they stockpile nutritious and long-lasting foods for an emergency.
According to Nielsen data published by the Huffington Post, grocery spending has stayed relatively constant recently, but Americans are spending much more on snacks such as protein bars, chips and beef jerky. Snack sales rose by 2 percent worldwide to $374 billion for the year ending in March 2014.
Officials at Food4Patriots, including Partner Allen Baler, believe that healthier foods will be needed during a time of crisis. The stress of dealing with a crisis that involves stores running out of food and water will be intense. Food4Patriots officials suggest storing nutritious foods rather than focusing on snacks. Some of the reasons that Food4Patriots has been able to sell more than 13 million meals since launching last summer is its wide variety of food, its nutritional content and its 25-year shelf life. Food is packaged in 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits.
All of the food in Food4Patriots emergency kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires nothing more than boiling water. Food is kept in easy-to-store Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light.
“Taste is obviously very important when you’re selling a food product, but variety and nutrition are also crucial,” said Allen Baler, partner at Food4Patriots. “Once a crisis hits, there’s no way to know how long it will last, and so all three of those components will be essential for people who are dependent upon their emergency food supply.”
Those who order one of the Food4Patriots Emergency Kits 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.”
