On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the Northeast United States, destroying homes, incapacitating streets and inflicting nearly $70 billion dollars of damage when it pummeled its way through the region. Just as the storm washed ashore and devastated millions of Americans, the rescue, recovery and clean-up efforts began immediately. Volunteers and relief workers from all over the country poured into the affected region to offer their hands clearing roadways, delivering supplies and ensuring the safety of those most vulnerable.
The influx of help was greatly needed, but from a logistics standpoint, taking care of first responders and volunteers is itself a difficult task. When Hurricane Sandy hit, RSA opened its doors in New Jersey and for six weeks after the storm, fed, sheltered and provided comfort to more than 5,000 workers; totaling more than 400,000 meals as part of disaster relief efforts.
RSA Disaster Relief Catering remains committed to providing amenities, shelter, provisions and food to the mass amounts of relief workers and victims of disasters at a moment’s notice.
