When there isn’t enough money to make ends meet and people are struggling to put food on their table, they often reach out to food banks, food pantries and feeding ministries for help. As we continue to suffer the economic effects from the COVID pandemic these organizations provide an important lifeline to people in need.
These organizations often list meat as one of their top donation needs. The donation of fresh meat is typically less frequent than other food items, and due to the higher cost of meat, most agencies are unable to purchase sufficient quantities. 
FHFH has provided almost 21 MILLION servings of meat for people struggling with hunger since 1997! We rely on the donation of deer and livestock by hunters and farmers, financial support from individuals, businesses, churches, clubs and foundations, time given by our volunteers, and the partnership of our participating meat processors. Because FHFH pays the fee for processing deer or livestock, there is no cost to the hunter or farmer donating or the food bank, food pantry or feeding ministry receiving the much-needed meat.
On behalf of FHFH and the people who are struggling with hunger, we thank you for your generous support as we work together to end hunger in our country!
