FHFH Meat Donation Totals Strong Despite Weather and Economy
Feeding the Hungry 06.14.12
Hunters and farmers in states nationwide donated 421,000 pounds of meat to Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) this past year – enough for 1.68 million servings of nutritious meat. This figure includes deer and elk donated by hunters along with some livestock and poultry donations from farmers.
“Despite bad weather in several states that impacted the total number of deer harvested, and an economy that has more hunters keeping deer for their own families, the Lord has blessed the ministry with a wonderful meat total for the food banks,” said Josh Wilson, FHFH Operations Director.
FHFH is thankful to all of the hunters and farmers, our local FHFH Coordinators, the financial supporters, the participating meat processors, and the prayer warriors who make the ministry possible, and is looking forward to another great year of working together to provide nutritious meat to those in need.
Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that provides nutritious meat from donated game and livestock to food banks and feeding programs that serve the needy. Formed in Maryland during 1997, FHFH now has Coordinators serving in 25 states nationwide and has served as a model for the development of sister ministries in Canada and Kenya.
