sational Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is held each year the week before Thanksgiving. This is a time for us all to start to think about what we are thankful for, a perfect time to share our compassion with our neighbors who are experiencing hunger and homelessness, and work toward a world where no one has to experience hunger and homelessness.

One in seven Americans struggle with hunger.  Hunger in America has, and continues to be, a real problem for a significant part of our population.  According to Feeding America, in 2013, 14% (17.5 million) of U.S. households were food insecure, meaning that they did not have access to enough food to meet their basic needs.

Inspired by a passion for the outdoors and compassion for the needy, Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) is committed to addressing America’s hunger problem in a unique and relevant way.  FHFH enables hunters and farmers in states nationwide to provide nutritious meat to feed the hungry of their communities.  Individuals, businesses, churches, clubs and foundations make contributions to FHFH to help cover the costs of processing, packaging and freezing the meat so there is no charge to those donating deer or livestock or to those receiving the meat.
