FEMA Food Contractor Another 'Heckuva Job' Flop

A contractor who was awarded a massive contract to provide millions of meals to Puerto Ricans affected by Hurricane Maria drastically underdelivered, according to a New York Times investigation. Tiffany Brown, an Atlanta entrepreneur and self-described government contractor who owns Tribute Contracting LLC, was awarded the $156 million contract by FEMA on Oct. 3 to provide 30 million self-heating meals to Puerto Rico, but only followed through on 50,000. Brown, the sole employee of her company, hired an 11-person wedding catering company and a Texas nonprofit that had shipped food to a Houston food bank during Hurricane Harvey to provide the meals.

Comments

With the goal of delivering 30 million meals to the hurricane-ravaged archipelago of Puerto Rico, the Federal Emergency Management Agency decided to give a contract worth $156 million to a one-person company run by someone with zero disaster relief experience, The New York Times reports.

Somehow, that plan didn't work out.

Instead, Tribute Contracting LLC owner Tiffany Brown, with the help of an Atlanta-based wedding caterer, only managed to deliver 50,000 meals at a time when FEMA was already expecting 18.5 million.


The Dotard's hurricane response was even more pathetic than previously reported. Perhaps the bloated child rapist should hold a military parade in San Juan to celebrate his awesomeness.

Anyone who thinks Trump was going to take care of hurricane victims that are not in red states is a moron.

" contract worth $156 million to a one-person company run by someone with zero disaster relief experience, T"

Tell us again how Dtard only hires the best and brightest.
