Farmers And Hunters Feeding The Hungry

Farmers And Hunters Feeding The Hungry

Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) received more than 175 tons of donated meat during the past year, which is enough to feed 1.4 million servings to the needy. This includes deer and elk donated by hunters, along with livestock and poultry donations from farmers.

Since 1997, FHFH has coordinated the donation and distribution of over 16 million meals to the hungry across America. FHFH is a non-profit organization and was formed in Maryland. Today, it has coordinators serving in 27 states.

"Food banks, soup kitchens and feeding ministries continually share how critical it is to receive donated meat like this," says FHFH’s Matt Wilson. "What an opportunity for the hunting and outdoors community to make a significant impact in the hunger relief effort across our nation. FHFH is thankful to all of the hunters and farmers, local FHFH coordinators, financial supporters, participating meat processors, and prayer partners who make the ministry possible.”

With continuing support, FHFH has set a goal of providing 2 million meals annually through 200 local chapters by 2016. Click here to find the nearest drop-off location for your next deer.
