4Patriots LLC of Nashville, Tenn., announced today that it has donated a three-month supply of its Food4Patriots survival food to the — Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee for distribution to people affected by the recent Smoky Mountains wildfires.
Wildfires blazing in and around Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee have claimed the lives of seven people and destroyed 700 structures throughout Sevier County, including 300 in the resort town of Gatlinburg.
“Extreme weather such as hurricanes and tornadoes are often the culprits when it comes to the devastation of homes and businesses, as well as the disruption of the food supply chain, but these terrible fires are proof that there are many other serious problems that can suddenly leave people without food or clean drinking water,” said Allen Baler, Partner at 4Patriots LLC, a company that provides a variety of products that help people become more self-reliant and independent.
“It’s another tragic reminder for all of us to be as prepared as possible for an uncertain future. But with so many people unprepared for these types of events, we want to do our share to help them get through a tough time. And that’s why we look for opportunities such as these to donate our survival food with a long shelf life.”
The 72-hour, one-week, four-week, three-month and one-year emergency food kits from Food4Patriots have shelf lives of up to 25 years. The food in these kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires only boiling water. It’s contained in easy-to-store Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light.
“Store shelves often empty quickly prior to, during and following these extreme weather situations, and even when they don’t, it can be difficult for people to get to those stores,” Baler said. “Being prepared with a stockpile of emergency food can bring great peace of mind during these events.”
