Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry Expand in Southwest Ohio
Adams County adds coordinator and processor
WEST UNION, OH - Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH), a ministry that provides nutritious venison to the hungry through food banks and local feeding programs has added a coordinator and processor in Southwest Ohio. FHFH helps hunters return to their heritage as food-providers by transforming deer - renewable resources- into meals for the hungry.
Hunters in Southwest Ohio can now contact the following coordinator to arrange deer donations in Adams County and surrounding area:

Successful hunters donate deer to partnering butcher shops that are licensed and inspected by the health department or USDA. Regional food banks as well as local feeding programs and ministries that feed the hungry pick up the packaged, frozen meat from the butcher shop. Local FHFH chapters raise money to cover the butchering costs so that hunters can donate their deer free of charge. FHFH then matches that amount with grant monies from Division of Wildlife. A generous donation from the Sinking Springs United Methodist Church made the Adams County FHFH chapter possible. Other organizations wishing to donate to the program can contact the chapter coordinator Tim Montgomery.
FHFH began in 1997 and blossomed from one Maryland County to over half of the states in the nation. Since its inception, FHFH has provided nutritious meat for millions of meals to the food banks and agencies that serve the poor across the country. FHFH is a 501(c)(3) organization. All contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
