Hurricane Irma is gone, and though much of South Florida was spared the full wrath of the storm, hundreds of thousands of residents remain without electricity. That means after working all day cleaning up debris, many people are left without basic necessities like a cold drink or hot food.
JetBlue is trying to relieve some of the stress of Irma by providing a free meal today,
The airline is sponsoring a free food truck roundup at the BB&T Center in Sunrise. Twenty food trucks are scheduled to participate, including 90 Miles to Go, Cheesezilla, Conch Shack, Gallos Pintos, King of Racks BBQ, and Worldwide Bistro. The list is subject to change.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and again from 4 to 7 p.m., these trucks will offer hot meals to anyone who needs them.
According to a JetBlue spokesperson, guests should enter the BB&T Center at Gates 3 and 5. Meals are on a first-come, first-served basis, and free meals will be offered until food runs out. The invitation is good for everyone, including first responders and residents affected by Irma.
JetBlue is also trying to organize another free food truck roundup this Thursday, September 14.
