Aid Org Quickly Retracts Earlier Reports Of No Additional Food Donations Needed
Officials rushed to inform the Media that some previous announcements had falsely stated that further donations of food items to local shelters were no longer necessary.
Those announcements had, in fact, stirred up a good measure of tension in the aid camps and residents reacted quite strongly, resulting in a few minor scuffles with aid workers and volunteers.
Best we can tell, the main issue isn’t that the shelter has no food available but that some residents were expecting an upgrade over the food they already have at home. One outspoken refugee gave us her account:
“Back in the shelters after Katrina, oh man we ate like Kings. Crawfish Etoufee, Gumbo, Redfish, you name it. Here it’s Spam, Ramen Noodles and motherf***in’ Spaghettios?? Frankly we expect better from a name brand Refuge, in this day and age. They’ve lost our business and we won’t be back.”
