That is a remarkably sensible use of the money. How unusual.

It must have been a pain for the hurricane victims to stand in line behind all those hipsters.

The trucks, each 40 feet long and 13 feet tall, will be used by The Salvation Army to prepare and serve 30,000 hot meals a day in times of need, the report said.

60 x 60 x 24 = 86,400 seconds in a day.  Divided by 3 trucks.  That's one meal in 8 seconds or so around the clock for 24 hours for each truck.  From mobile trailers.  If that is accurate, that is remarkable.  For some reason, though, I imagine that while the trailer might be able to handle that volume, getting that volume of food to the truck in a disaster might be quite difficult.  Who knows.  Not me, but if it is even fractionally as good as advertised, kudos on your purchase, Mr. Christie.  Sounds like money well spent.

I'd love to see this guy run for POTUS. Unfortunately the teaparty won't stand for such nonsense.

glad to see the low-hanging fruit has been thoroughly gleaned here.

They also bought a mobile kennel truck that is going to sit around for 50 years until the next storm. One would think you could lease such a vehicle when needed and buying was not necessary.

You know...I have no problem with this, unless the Salvation Army tries to force religion down the throats of those in need of a hot meal.

Seconded (as well as despising those of other religious organizations [Christian or otherwise... but usually Christian] who force their religions down the throat of those in need and/or take advantage of people when they're in a depressed state after a crisis/disaster, "See Mr Jew, your G-d didn't help you when Hurricane Sandy came and flooded your synagogue, so read this pamphlet and get saved at my church listed on the back!")

Food trucks must follow him around town.

The Salvation Army can run them a heck of a lot more efficiently than any state agency.

Hat tip to the Salvation Army.   They usually get there before anyone, and they do good work.

Don't you mean spends $870,000  at food trucks?

Yes, I know. "That's the joke."

This is actually a really smart idea. Getting groceries or ANYTHING after Sandy was a major issue. New Jersey got slammed and hopefully we learned something from it.

Really? In D.C., it's just people - the mix by me is equal suits, interns, fifty year-old black women in pantsuits, and construction workers.

What a complete waste of farking money! These things are going to sit in some warehouse and when a storm or other disaster finally comes along in 10-15 years nobody is going to even remember they have them. The Salvation Army and the Red Cross are already equipped to deal with these kind of things. It may not be as fancy as these food trucks but they get the job done.

Too bad these trucks can't move to help people in other states.

yes because what is really important when you are starving is if someone is proselytizing at you... not if you are hungry and getting fed. be sure to refuse that food if they do you guys... after all, that's what is really important right?

/they don't proselytize btw.

I remember when I was enlisted in the KISS Army, and we went to war against the Salvation Army. War really is Hell...

I would like to take this opportunity to point out that no matter what you think of the Salvation Army, when a disaster happens, their people will stay in the disaster zone helping victims longer than what the Red Cross does.
