Wayne-Sanderson Farms Helps Provide Meals to Texas Wildfire Victims & Responders

BRYAN, TX. (March 2024) – As the Smokehouse Creek Fire  continues to impact Texas,  Wayne-Sanderson Farms’ Bryan Processing Complex has donated 20,000 pounds of fresh chicken and 500 cases of ice to help feed local families and first responders.

Company representatives delivered the chicken to the Borger Salvation Army, which is working with local officials to provide relief to victims and emergency responders. The blaze has become the largest fire in state history, engulfing over a million acres and burning across several towns along the Texas Panhandle.

“We are thinking of our neighbors in Texas, and are glad to provide some support to those impacted by this devastating fire,” said Allen Laughlin, Wayne-Sanderson Bryan Processing Complex Manager.

Wayne-Sanderson Farms partners with hundreds of local family poultry farms and operates four poultry processing complexes in Texas, including feed mills, production facilities and hatcheries.
