Chatfield, MN – The Pope & Young Club is proud to announce its continued support of Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry. FHFH pays local butcher shops to process donated deer, and livestock, to help feed the hungry. Since its inception in 1997, it has produced over 19 million servings. In 2003 at the Madison, Wisconsin P&Y Convention, FHFH was presented with the Club’s Stewardship Award, “Given to a bowhunter or bowhunting organization that, by their actions, has conveyed a positive, good-citizen image to the hunting and non-hunting public.”
Inspired by a passion for the outdoors and compassion for the needy, FHFH is committed to addressing the problem of hunger across America by paying local butcher shops to process donated deer and livestock for local food banks and feeding ministries. With volunteers and participating local butcher shops serving in 20 states, FHFH enables hunters and farmers to provide protein-rich meat to local feeding programs and ministries in a unique and relevant way.
“Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry is very grateful for the long-time support and partnership of the Pope & Young Club,” stated Josh Wilson, Executive Director of FHFH. “Their generous grants have furthered the work of our mission by helping hunters in states across the nation provide nutritious meat from donated deer and elk to hungry men, women, and children in their communities.”
The Pope and Young Club is a non-profit North American conservation and bowhunting organization dedicated to the promotion and protection of bowhunting by striving to increase awareness and appreciation of bowhunting foundations, principles and values. The Pope and Young Club is focused on Fair Chase hunting ethics that support the ethical pursuit of free-ranging, wild game animals without unfair advantage while promoting the conservation of both habitat and wildlife. The Club also maintains the universally recognized repository of records and statistics on North American big game animals harvested with a bow and arrow.
