Hunters Donate Meat for 714,000 Meals to the Hungry

Over 20.2 Million Servings Since 1997

Hagerstown, MD — The Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) venison donation ministry distributed 714,000 servings of nutritious meat to local food banks and ministries to help feed needy children, families and individuals over the past year.

​Donations included over 89 tons of deer, elk and livestock from generous hunters and farmers bringing the total number of meat servings donated, processed and distributed through the organization to 20.2 million since 1997.

“We are so thankful that the Lord has used this ministry to enable hunters and farmers to provide meat for over 20 million meals to their hungry neighbors,” said FHFH Executive Director Josh Wilson.  “And we are grateful for the local butcher shops, financial supporters and volunteers across the country who make this program possible.”

Financial support and grant funding from individuals, businesses, churches, other organizations and foundations enable FHFH to pay participating local butcher shops a discounted rate to process and package donated deer and livestock.  The meat is then distributed to local food banks, feeding programs and ministries at no cost to help feed the needy of their communities.
 
​Inspired by a passion for the outdoors and compassion for the needy, FHFH is committed to addressing the problem of hunger across America.  With volunteers and participating local butcher shops serving in over 20 states, FHFH enables hunters and farmers to provide protein-rich meat to local feeding programs and ministries in a unique and relevant way.
 
The organization welcomes new financial supporters and volunteers to join the cause.  Those interested in learning more can visit www.fhfh.org, call toll-free 866-438-3434, or email staff@fhfh.org for more information about the ministry.
