What We Do
Innovative Humanitarian Relief

Scalable to Purpose
We can package food for the needs of the individual to shipping millions of servings in multiple ocean containers.
Responsive to Need
We work with partners around the globe in their plans to help feed countless populations, and we can also respond promptly when entire regions are affected by disaster.
The South Plains Food Bank (SPFB) opened.
The SPFB received a donation of 29 acres of farm land (56th St. and MLK Jr. Blvd.) as site for Breedlove Food Processing plant – It was a former air training area that, founder, Mary Louise Breedlove Kingsbery’s father had owned during World War II. – It was later developed as an apple orchard when an existing building and property were found for the dehydrated food project (Breedlove).
H.A. and Barbara Sessions and J.T. and Margaret Talkington donated the Litton Industries building (48,000 square feet) and 42 acres of land at North Loop 289 and MLK Jr. Blvd to Breedlove. The plant was named after Aulyne and Clent Breedlove, parents of Mary Louise Breedlove Kingsbery; she and her husband, Bill, made the initial contribution, which was the catalyst for the project.
