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.
