Can We Air-drop Bread To Haiti?

Haitians are starving, in their third day without food or water. Their sea-port is unusable, and their airport has only one runway.

No runways are needed for bread dropped from the air.

The only bottleneck is that a drop has to happen in controlled airspace. Otherwise, flights can come from anywhere with loaves of day-old bread that Americans would otherwise throw away. Tons, one would hope. It can fall like rain if we choose. If bread falls everywhere, the starving people who are everywhere can find it. No lines.

Bread needs no baking, no firewood.

If it falls on you, it won't hurt you. It will help you.
