Imagine the positive publicity, and possible system of directed donation
funding, if one or more mega-corporations were to create self-contained,
ready to air drop food manufacturing units. Say Dominos or other
company with easy to stabilize and/or supply ingredients were to build a
tough container-based food factory that could be transported anywhere
within a small number of hours and, in a self-contained, self-powered
fashion, crank out food and fresh water for hundreds or thousands of
people? Modularize the ingredient refills, fuel, and make it as
automated as possible. They could have dropped a dozen by now at the
stadium and elsewhere.
Transport by C130, helicopter, custom-built "White Knight" like carrier,
Imagine the publicity, good will, and funding that would pour in to
support such a solution.
You could even imagine a waterproof version that is stashed in strategic
ports, areas, and ships just in case.
Of course this should be done for medical and other purposes also.
