Customers are quite happy with their purchases from Food Insurance. Here is a sampling of some of the reviews found on Amazon and the Food Insurance website:
"I was a little dissapointed that this is NOT individually packaged meals. It is large 1 gallon cans of freeze dried foods, one can may contain 20 servings. They come with a plastic lid to seal it with after you open it, However once opened I dont know if that decreases the 25 year shelf life or not. I bought this for Emergency Use and have not opened any of the cans so I can't say if the food taste good or not but, in an emergency with no other food available I'm sure it will be delicious." - BobBuilds
"For the price this is a great deal. The backpack isn't super hi-tech, but when you figure a two-week food supply sells at $160, then you realize all the other equipment is pretty nice when you only have $40-50 to work with. I'd probably place the backpack in the price range of $50-$75 based on features, but it's heavy duty and has a fair amount of pockets. I'd say it's something you'd find at Walmart or Target, not REI." - Brian Hogan (Read full review)
"My family and I have looked for emergency preparedness solutions for years. Here in Florida we have to be prepared for hurricanes and other violent weather. The Food Insurance™ food storage package is the highest quality food and water solution I have found. I bought backpacks for my husband and me as well as for my three sons." - Nancy Wilson
"In New York we take it for granted that there will always be food at the local market. After living through terrorist attacks and power outages, many New Yorkers are searching for a preparedness solution that will get us through the next crisis. I needed something compact and reliable that would fit in my relatively small apartment. The Food Insurance™ package fits easily in my closet. I can sleep better knowing the next time we have an emergency in this city, I will be ready for it." - Alex Cohen
"I can't think of anything worse than not being able to feed your children. Every year we see and read stories of people in other parts of the country who have to endure fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and other natural disasters. I always wonder what these people do for survival food and water until the national agencies arrive on the scene. I don't want to take the risk that some government agency won't show up in time." - Abby Ward
