LUBBOCK, Texas — Breedlove Foods, with the help of two non-government organizations (NGOs), sent 1 million meals from Lubbock to Ukraine on Tuesday. Russia invaded Ukraine in February, and according to The Associated Press, as of the latest reports, 4 million Ukrainians have become refugees.
The NGOs provided the ability to distribute the food in Ukraine.
“What you’re seeing here is a donation by Breedlove of about 20 tons of food,” said Bill Miller, CEO of Breedlove. “The product has a long shelf life, [and is] truly nutritional.”
Once the food is in place, humanitarian aid organizations only need to add water.
Breedlove describes itself on the website as “a commercial-sized nonprofit food processor dedicated to humanitarian aid.”
