The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore has awarded $1,500 funding to Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry, which will provide 3,000 servings of nutritious meat to the food banks and programs that feed people of Somerset and Wicomico County who are in need.
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.
“Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry epitomizes coming together to help your neighbor in need,” says Josh Wilson, FHFH Executive Director. “On behalf of FHFH and those in Somerset and Wicomico County who struggle with hunger, we thank The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore for their generosity and support of our mission to end hunger.”
Established in 1984, CFES is a public foundation and a 501c3 nonprofit. CFES serves Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset Counties.
