Breedlove, Inc. is a wonderful nonprofit! I visited this organization after seeing a special on them on state-wide tv program and found out first hand how incredible they are. In addition to finding innovative ways to battle world wide hunger, the staff is composed of incredibly kind and caring individuals. What an amazing combination to fight this war.

I had the privilege to deliver food donated by Breedlove to families in our area. It was very humbling to see the need of these people, and the raw emotion of appreciation as they received the food. They thanked us profusely, stating that they didn't know what they would have done without Breedlove's help. Breedlove needs our help to continue and expand the campaign to feed the hungry. Breedlove is a trustworthy organization that not only recognizes the need of the hungry, but also feeds them, both locally and around the world. Please join the cause and help Breedlove help others.

Breedlove is an active member of the Lubbock County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and has been very supportive in our activities to reach out to the community in the area of Emergency Preparedness. Recently Breedlove provided food pails to my volunteers participating in the Lubbock County Commodity Flow Study. Volunteers donated over $12K, so it was a nice surprise that Breedlove provided these for them. Not only does Breedlove provide food around the world, but they also support local non-profits like our LEPC to care for people right here in Lubbock. Thank you to Hope and Colton for all that you do for Lubbock, for our LEPC and across the nations. Blessings to all of the Breedlove team.

I have known about Breedlove for 3 years now and am so very thankful for all the work they do to feed the hungry not only around the world but also here in our community. I know personally all the hard work that they do out there on a daily basis and the heart that some of them have to feed the hungry. Keep it up Breedlove! Our community is better with you in it!

Breedlove is a favorite!! The folks there have such a heart for feeding the hungry; locally and on the other side of the world. Fish, David, Hope, Paul and rest of the crew at Breedlove are knowledgeable, experienced and sincere in their efforts. It's a great organization with an even greater mission ran by amazing folks.

I heard about Breedlove as a student while at Texas Tech. I thank them for what they do for the most vulnerable people around the world. I cannot imagine not knowing if I will have a next meal or not, but Breedlove is making it possible for all those in despair around the world. Thank you for your great cause to help those who are hungry. God Bless.

I am a public school administartor and have had donation drives on my campus several times. The staff at Breedlove have been wonderful to work with and have gone out of there way to give my students access to their facilities for field trips. On these field trips Breedlove staff have provided information to my students that helped them understand what was going on at Breedlove as well as helping them understand what they can do to make a difference. I must say that I feel very strongly about this being a "First Class" orginazation.
