The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore has awarded $1,500 funding to the Wicomico County, Maryland Chapter of Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry! This funding will provide 3,000 servings of nutritious meat to the food banks and feeding programs that feed the people of Wicomico County who are in need.
On behalf of those in 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!
Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry is an important program to the community because it allows us to help and support members of our community that haven fallen on hard times. Especially during times like the Covid-19 pandemic, families often find it difficult to find the supplies that would normally be readily available. Without programs like FHFH we would not have the opportunity to give back to the community when it is needed the most. Bryan Todd, Off the Neck Game Butcher Shop, Wicomico County
