Patriot LWM Outdoors is proud to be associated with such a fantastic organization! Farmers and Hunters Feeding the homeless (FHFH) is an outreach ministry of the people of God called upon to feed venison to the hungry among us nationwide.
How it works…
With the growing number of deer and other big game in America, crop and property damage permits are being issued to farmers, airports, military installations and agricultural facilities. Many of these deer and other big game are being discarded. In addition, liberal bag limits and extended seasons are putting hunters in the position of being able to harvest more deer and other big game than they can personally consume.
FARMERS & HUNTERS
Successful farmers and hunters follow normal check in or crop damage permit procedures defined under their states regulations.
Farmers and hunters deliver the harvested surplus deer and other big game to participating meat processors in each county. Donations from churches, clubs, businesses and individuals cover the costs of processing, packaging and freezing the meat.
The frozen meat is then available free of cost for pick-up by a nearby food bank or feeding program.
This nutritious, low fat, high protein meat is then distributed and/or cooked by hundreds of community agencies such as:church pantries, church feeding ministries, Salvation Army, community food banks, emergency assistance programs, Rescue Missions, children’s homes, etc.
