Williams said she first heard of the organization at her church, Thurmont Church of the Brethren, from Dawn Moser who brought the FHFH Flyer. “I was impressed and contacted and meet with Josh & Rich Wilson the founder. After hearing his story about how he received this calling by meeting a woman along side a dark Virginian Road, helping her load a road-kill deer into her car so she could feed her family, I knew the PPF, Inc. was also to answer a calling and be apart of his organization. Being from the Smoky Mountains of eastern Tennessee I could identify with this woman. If we had deer meat we were in Hillbilly Heaven. It was a luxury! Some people tell me that the Frederick County people do not have a palate for deer meat. I say these are opinions of people who can afford to buy what they desire. If you are needy and hungry you will love deer meat. We are offering protein and a meat that is leaner which makes it healthier for you.
We are asking hunters to give us their best. It cost us the same to dress out a small deer as it does a large one. Processing will be done by Snuffs Meat in Thurmont, MD; Dorsey’s Meat in Woodsboro, MD; and Pry’s Deer Processing, Knoxville, MD.
Please go to www.FHFH.org to fully understand their out reach ministry. To date, they have processed over 1,600 tons-nearly 13 million servings of venison and other big game for soup kitchens and food pantries across America.
In Frederick County, the meat is shared through the Frederick Soup Kitchen who serves over 25,000 meals annually. Frederick Foodbank is operated as a partnership between the FCAA and the Religious Coalition for Emergency Human Needs. Approximately 450 households use the Foodbank each month.
Our goal is to have 400 deer which would provide 80,000 servings. To reach that goal, we will need help from the community. One generous anonymous donor has stepped up to the plate already. We also have money allocated from the BB&T Governor Ehrlich (who is a big supporter of this program) Charity Golf Outing at Holly Hills C.C. this summer but we will need more to achieve this goal. I’m sure the hunters will be generous. If you do not hunt, you could help with the packaging costs. Scriptures tell us we are to feed our hungry. If you have been blessed, you may want to pass that blessing on to others.”
