Donations included over 97 tons of deer and elk from hunters along with livestock and poultry from farmers.
“The Lord has provided us with such a wonderful opportunity to take care of our hungry neighbors,” said FHFH Executive Director Josh Wilson. “We are very grateful to the many hunters, farmers, butcher shops, financial supporters and volunteers who participate across the country. Without their faithfulness and passion this work would not be possible.”
Since 1997 FHFH has coordinated the donation, processing and distribution of enough meat for over 19.4 million meals to the hungry.
Financial support and grant funding from individuals, businesses, churches, other organizations and foundations enable FHFH to pay participating local butcher shops a discounted rate to process and package donated deer and livestock.
During the past year this support included generous grant funding from the Walmart Foundation, Cabela’s Outdoor Fund, Ohio Division of Wildlife, and Maryland Wildlife and Heritage Service.
Inspired by a passion for the outdoors and compassion for the needy, FHFH is committed to addressing the problem of hunger across America. With volunteers and participating local butcher shops serving in over 20 states, FHFH enables hunters and farmers to provide protein-rich meat to local feeding programs and ministries in a unique and relevant way.
