Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry has been awarded a $5,000 general grant from the Ausherman Family Foundation in Frederick County, Maryland. This funding will help our ministry provide over 10,000 additional servings of meat to the hungry through local food banks and feeding ministries.
“The Ausherman Family Foundation has been a regular supporter of our mission to fight hunger for the past 17 years! Their faithful generosity is a strong indication of how deeply they care about the needs of local individuals, children and families in the Frederick area,” said FHFH Executive Director Josh Wilson.
The Ausherman Family Foundation is a private foundation, established in 2006. The Trustees envision a vibrant community where committed nonprofit organizations effectively work together in a spirit of cooperation to advance superior charitable outcomes in Frederick County. The Foundation’s mission is to empower the passion for change in Frederick County, Maryland.
Protein and meat products are one of the top items needed by food banks. The expensive price of meat and its limited shelf life prevent it from being a readily accessible food item by food banks. The meat donated to the food banks and feeding ministries by FHFH will help provide much needed nutrition to people in need. On behalf of FHFH and those in Frederick County who struggle with hunger, we thank The Ausherman Family Foundation for their generosity and support of our mission to end hunger.
