The Mid-Shore Community Foundation has awarded $2,500 in grant funding to FHFH which will assist FHFH in providing approximately 5,000 meal servings of nutritious meat to the food banks and feeding ministries who serve people in need in Caroline, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot Counties in Maryland.
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 Caroline, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot Counties who struggle with hunger, we thank the Mid-Shore Community Foundation for their generosity and support of our mission to end hunger.”
Established in 1992, the Mid-Shore Community Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity that connects private resources with public needs to enhance the quality of life throughout the Mid-Shore Region of Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot Counties. The Foundation works with donors to establish funds for the region – funds that are distributed as grants and scholarships, provides training programs and endowment management services to area nonprofits, and supports start‐up charities and local charitable projects through fiscal sponsorship.
Inspired by a passion for the hunt and compassion for the hungry, FHFH is committed to addressing the problem of hunger in America. Since 1997 the organization has provided over 22 million servings of meat to those in need in communities nationwide. To learn more visit FeedingtheHungry.org.
