Soon after a devastating earthquake hit Puerto Rico, food relief boxes arrived from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which contained chocolate bars, cookies and potato chips.

Now some of those same recipients say four months of food aid in Puerto Rico brought too much salt and sugar.

“I mean, at one point they were giving them dehydrated, expired military meals or, like, powdered mashed potatoes,” Pao Lebrón Guzmán, whose family in Puerto Rico received these types of meals to Public Radio. “None of it is real food and none of it comes from actual real vegetables or anything that you know has been freshly harvested.”
