The Pope and Young Club Helps Fund New Chapters of Farmers And Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH)

The Pope and Young Club Conservation, Education and Outreach fund has awarded a grant to Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH). The grant will fund the startup of 5 new FHFH chapters with materials and processing.


Inspired by a passion for the outdoors and compassion for the 
needy, Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) is committed to addressing America's hunger problem in a unique and relevant way. Established in 1997, FHFH enables

hunters and farmers in states nationwide to provide nutritious meat to feed the hungry of their communities. FHFH now operates chapters in 25 states through the efforts of approximately 130 local volunteer coordinators. Over the last several years roughly 1.5 million meals annually of donated wild game meat is provided through local FHFH chapters.


Surveys have shown that programs like FHFH help encourage 
people to try hunting for the first time, continue hunting after filling their own freezers, or become interested in hunting again. FHFH can also lift up the positive image of hunters as both conservationists and humanitarians in the eyes of the media and non-hunters. Maybe even give people a new reason to try hunting for the first time in order to help provide tens of thousands of pounds of nutritious meat from harvested game to the hungry and needy people of America. These efforts can help make hunters and their good work a source of national pride.


“Our mission since 1997 has been to help hunters return to their heritage as food providers utilizing the Godgiven 
renewable resource of deer and other wild game as food for the hungry. We are thankful for how P&Y has supported the mission of FHFH to feed the hungry through hunting and the outdoors”, says Matt Wilson, Program and Development Director, FHFH. “The grant will cover the processing costs of the first donated deer as well as provide promotional and start-up materials for five new FHFH chapters in TX, OH, WY, LA, and MD. We’ve recognized the value in providing as much support as possible initially to a new FHFH chapter. This effort helps them provide an immediate impact to their community through hunting and gives them as much of an opportunity as possible for sustained growth and success.”
