Breedlove Dehydration Plant Ready to Aid Cyclone Victims in Myanmar

Relief efforts are coming from Lubbock and all over the world, as the death toll in Myanmar rises above 22,000.

A deadly cyclone ravaged the country over the weekend. More than 45,000 more are still missing. In the days that follow, relief challenges continue to mount. Myanmar is reluctant to accept any outside assistance, and says it will approve efforts only in stages.

The Breedlove Dehydration Plant, here in Lubbock, is preparing to send relief once the exact needs of the area are known. 

"This is in some ways like the tsunami was. Each day when the news comes in there's a new number, new estimates, devastation, and damage. Seems to grow as each day passes," said David Fish, Breedlove CEO. "We're geared up for it. All it will do is modify our production schedule. We've got enough ingredients in stock right now that we can put together a pretty sizeable response just from what is on hand in our warehouse.

Fish says donations from the public are a big help with efforts like this, and just one dollar would be enough for about 20 meals.

If you would like to donate to Breedlove's relief effort, you can do so at 1818 N. MLK Blvd., or call them at (806) 741-0404.
