A Unique Organization
Breedlove is truly unique—we are a commercial-sized nonprofit food processor dedicated to humanitarian aid.
What We Do
Innovative Humanitarian Relief
In the United States and in more than 70 countries around the world, Breedlove provides food for the world's hungry.
Our food is utilized in a variety of settings such as school feeding programs, refugee camps, disaster relief operations, maternal and child health programs, famine relief programs, and other humanitarian aid efforts.
Our foods are nutritionally complete, offering great nutrition and taste.
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 to help them implement their feeding programs, 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.
On Oct. 15, Breedlove held a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Operations began at Breedlove Dehydrated Foods.
Breedlove was approached by a faith-based organization working to mitigate a severe food shortage in North Korea. Breedlove responded on an at-cost basis and provided 33 ocean containers with more than 30 million servings of food.
We changed our name from Breedlove Dehydrated Foods to Breedlove Foods, Inc.
Breedlove became the first supplier to USAID’s International Food Relief Partnership program - a program that we helped establish.
Breedlove officially became its own entity – separate from the SPFB.
Breedlove officially stopped dehydrating potatoes and all other food, due to high operational costs.
Breedlove celebrates a production milestone - more than 2 billion servings have been produced since its establishment in 1994.
