Haitian Crowd Refuses U.N. Food Distribution in Confusion over Expiration Date for Biscuits - Video 1/15/10
Here is pathetic video of a UN Food Truck in Haiti trying to distribute high energy biscuits to hungry people in Port-Au-Prince today. At first the Haitians push and shove to get to the food, and then some begin telling the people to not accept the biscuits because the "food is no good." They were mistaking the packaging date of 2008 with the expiration date of 2010. The crowd became angry and the food truck drove away with some of the people still trying to get the food.
This shows how difficult it is going to be to help people in this desperate situation.
