4Patriots LLC has donated a three-month supply of its Food4Patriots emergency food to Capital Area United Way for the purpose of helping feed victims of recent flooding in and around Baton Rouge, La.
NASHVILLE, TN / ACCESSWIRE / August 25, 2016 / Recent flooding in Louisiana took 13 lives, negatively affected 40,000 homes, put 8,000 people in shelters and prompted 9,000 individuals to file flood insurance claims, according to ABC News and other media outlets.
4Patriots LLC of Nashville, Tenn., has responded to this disaster by donating a three-month supply of its Food4Patriots emergency food to Capital Area United Way in Baton Rouge. The delivery was scheduled to arrive Aug. 23, 2016.
"Yet another extreme weather event has destroyed lives, homes and other property, and our hearts break when we see the devastation," said Allen Baler, Partner at 4Patriots. "As the distributors of emergency food, reaching out with a food donation is the most fitting thing we can do."
"We also want to encourage everyone who is able to donate to food banks in the Baton Rouge area, such as Capital Area United Way, to do so as soon as possible in order to help people in need following this historic flooding. The need will be great there for quite some time."
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.
"We strongly recommend that people stock up on emergency food so they can help themselves if they're ever victims of extreme weather," Baler added. "Store shelves often empty quickly in these situations, and even when they don't, it can be difficult to get to those stores."
Other 4Patriots products include:
Patriot Power Generator, a portable solar generator designed to provide electricity for important devices and equipment during a power outage or disaster situation.
Water4Patriots, featuring the Alexapure Pro water filtration system and the Survival Spring personal water filter, both designed to provide the user with safe, clean drinking water in any situation.
