Employees and volunteers from the Little Rock-based Arkansas Rice Depot have been extremely busy recently, helping victims of the deadly tornadoes that tore through central and southeastern states in late April. But that didn’t stop them from taking a few moments to thank organizations such as Nashville, Tenn.-based Food4Patriots for their donations.

“The tornadoes that ripped our state were the worst we have seen since 1969,” said Arkansas Rice Depot Corporate Development Director Cyndi Gregory. “Your donation brought relief and smiles to many families who came to our trailer to receive food and supplies. Thank you for joining our efforts to help some in need.”

Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, donated 100 of its 72-hour food kits and 100 of its LifeStraw personal water filters.

“We encourage everyone who is able to donate to disaster relief organizations such as the Arkansas Rice Depot, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, Convoy of Hope and others in order to help people in need,” said Allen Baler, Partner at Food4Patriots and Water4Patriots.

Since launching last summer, Food4Patriots has sold more than 13 million meals to people who want to be ready when the inevitable crisis occurs. The company’s 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits 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 kept in easy-to-store Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light.

Sales of the LifeStraw from Water4Patriots reached 13,259 in just its first month after launching. Together, those LifeStraws have the potential of turning 3.5 million gallons of contaminated water into pure drinking water. The world’s most advanced water filter removes 99.999 percent of waterborne bacteria and parasites, and provides the user with crystal-clear water when no clean drinking water is available.
