175 Tons of Meat Donated to Feed the Needy

Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) received over 175 tons of donated meat during the past year- 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 of wild game, livestock, and poultry to the hungry across America.

“Food Banks, soup kitchens, and feeding ministries continually share how critical it is to receive donated meat like this,” said Matt Wilson, FHFH Program and Development Director. “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.

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 27 states.
