The Community Foundation of the Texas Hill Country has awarded a $2,500 grant to the Texas Hill Country FHFH venison donation ministry. This funding will help FHFH pay meat processing bills to transform donated deer into nutritious meat for local food banks and feeding ministries located in Bandera, Gillespie, Kendall and Kerr County.
The Community Foundation of the Texas Hill Country is the region’s philanthropic endowment, created to support charitable and civic efforts now and for the long term. The Community Foundation works with donors, makes grants to nonprofit organizations, and awards academic scholarships to students in 10 Central Texas counties.
About FHFH – People across America who struggle with food insecurity are often desperate for meat and protein items. FHFH gives nutritious meat to local food banks, food pantries and feeding ministries that help those in need by paying inspected and approved local butcher shops to process deer and livestock that are donated by farmers and hunters. Meat for over 22 million meals has been donated, processed and distributed nationally by FHFH since 1997. FHFH welcomes new supporters and volunteers to join the cause.
