A week after being branded as terrorists by the fire department, New York vendors are showing their service in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which left millions without power, transport, and food. Vendors, who don’t rely on any power grid, are perfect for such situations.
Jetblue acted quickly, sponsoring eleven food trucks who served more than 25,000 storm victims. Our friends at the NYC Food Truck Association crowd-sourced $27,000 to serve thousands more. All across the city, vendors kept working, providing a beacon of light, warm food, and a little bit of hope in amidst all the bad news.
