N.J. officials handing out holiday meals after storm

    Gov. Chris Christie and other top state officials are trying to be sure residents hit hard by Superstorm Sandy will get to celebrate Thanksgiving.

    Christie and his cabinet members will be packaging and distributing meals Wednesday at Lowe’s stores, most of them in areas that sustained flooding.

    Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, are handing out food at a Lowes store in Toms River.

    The food is being provided by Boston Market.

    The event kicks off the administration’s second annual “Season of Service.”
