When it comes to making a positive difference in America, Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) continues to be a leader. Over the past year, FHFH donations included 89 tons (714K servings) of deer, elk and livestock from generous hunters and farmers, bringing the total number of servings donated, processed and distributed through the organization to 20.2 million since 1997.

“We are so thankful that the Lord has used this ministry to enable hunters and farmers to provide meat for over 20 million meals to their hungry neighbors,” said FHFH Executive Director Josh Wilson. “And we are grateful for the local butcher shops, financial supporters and volunteers across the country who make this program possible.” 

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. The meat is then distributed to local food banks, feeding programs and ministries at no cost to help feed the needy of their communities.

FHFH Receives Generous Grant

Speaking of financial supporters, the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund has awarded a grant to the national FHFH venison donation ministry. This funding will help FHFH pay meat processing bills to transform donated deer into nutritious meat for local food banks, promote the value of “venison for the hungry” efforts to the general public, and continue supporting the network of FHFH chapter coordinators.

“On behalf of those in our country who struggle with hunger, we thank the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund for their generosity and support of our mission to end hunger in America,” Wilson said.

Guided by the leadership of Bass Pro Founder Johnny Morris, the Outdoor Fund empowers Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s 200 million annual customers to support conservation efforts by rounding up their purchases.

FHFH Nationwide Impact

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.
