Summary:

The Mobile Press-Register used FOIA to obtain the contract for over 400,000 non-perishable box lunches, which were intended for post-Hurricane Rita relief efforts in southwestern Louisiana, but wound up in New Orleans as part of post-Hurricane Katrina efforts. The president of the company which provided the lunches had sued to keep the contract details secret, to avoid helping competitors in future bids.
