David Hankins of Breedlove Talks About Dehydrated Foods [AUDIO]
During Tuesday's edition of Lubbock's First News on KFYO, Breedlove's Marketing and Development Director David Hankins came by the studio to discuss his company and some of the meals they sell.
Breedlove is an organization that provides affordable food to hunger relief and disaster relief. "Since 1994 Breedlove has been developing low-cost, nutritious food products that are just designed to basically sustain life and restore health," David Hankins explained.
A few of their foods are unflavored vegetable soups that can be had for $.05 and a rice dinner that can be had for $.11. No meals have meat in them because of the company's worldwide distribution and many vegetarian consumers. You can buy by the bag, case, or 5 gallon pale loaded with a variety of meals.
The pales are designed for long shelf life and are perfect for emergency preparedness. They are vacuum sealed and good for 20 years on the shelf. There are 8 different varieties for different prices, from about $36 to $93. The $93 dollar pale includes 216 servings. People use these for everything from emergency preparedness to hunting trips.
The chicken rice dinner is a 2.2 pound bag for $6 dollars. This includes 20 servings. "You try and go and find that at the grocery store," Hankins said.
