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.
'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.
After 4 weeks of no food or water in aid my family in Cabo Rojo received 2 cans of beefaroni & crackers! I wrote about it on Facebook and a volunteer vet from a relief team apologized & posted this pic and said he felt bad giving care packages like this out. pic.twitter.com/JlJqVgN87a— Carla Ramos (@Lucysbabygirl) November 13, 2017
