The Robert T. Timmons, Sr. Fund of the Coshocton Foundation in Ohio has awarded $1,000 grant funding to Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry, which will provide approximately 2,000 servings of nutritious meat to the food banks and programs that feed the hungry of Coshocton County, Ohio.
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 Coshocton County who struggle with hunger, we thank the Robert T. Timmons, Sr. Fund of the Coshocton Foundation for their generosity and support of our mission to end hunger.”
The Coshocton Foundation was created in 1967 through a $685,000 bequest from Adolph Golden, a prominent Coshocton merchant and harness racing enthusiast. In 1989, the late Edward and Frances Montgomery gave broader giving a significant boost by establishing a challenge fund that would match gifts to the Foundation’s unrestricted fund. The fund was set up to match a maximum of $500,000 over a period of ten years. The breadth of that donor base continues to grow as more and more people become aware of the Foundation’s activities and aware of the fact that gifts of any size are welcome and beneficial to the Coshocton County community.
