Photos Of Emergency Food Packages Being Sent To Puerto Rico Emerge--And People Are Appalled

Government contractor Longbranch Partners has come under scrutiny as photos appear online of food the company has been sending to Puerto Rico as part of relief efforts. FEMA is distributing the boxes marked as "meal module." According to Inside Gov, Longbranch Partners has received over $9 million in government contracts since 2004. It is unclear time what their contract is with the relief effort in Puerto Rico.  

When the backlash began on social media, FEMA released a statement:

'Meal module’ is Longbranch’s terminology, not FEMA’s. We have cancelled future orders for these packs and the remaining inventory will be distributed to the portion of the survivor population that can use the snacks effectively.
