Base Camp Leasing
Base Camp Leasing helps hunters feed the needy of their communities through a very generous sponsorship gift to FHFH in support of our hunger relief mission. We are grateful for their partnership and their compassion for those in need!
Base Camp Leasing was founded by Steve Meng, an accomplished whitetail deer hunter and former grain industry professional. Steve took his passion for hunting and turned it into a career. Personally experiencing discouragement in the lack of accessibility to private hunting property, Steve was motivated to develop a mutually beneficial business model to serve both landowners and hunters alike. Established in 1999, Base Camp Leasing has led the way in the hunting lease industry and continues to expand to new states every year.
How FHFH Works
Hunters in some parts of the country are able to harvest more deer than they can eat or share with their friends and family. Farmers are issued management permits to reduce deer numbers that are damaging their crop yields. Some also have livestock they are willing to donate.
Hunters are invited to donate their deer to approved meat processors that participate with FHFH. Individuals, businesses, churches, clubs and foundations make contributions to FHFH to help cover the costs of processing, packaging and freezing the meat.
FOOD BANKS and FEEDING MINISTRIES
This nutritious, low fat, high protein meat is then given to community agencies such as church pantries, church feeding ministries, the Salvation Army, community food banks, emergency assistance programs, Rescue Missions, children’s homes to distribute or serve to their clients.
