Feeding the Hungry

By

Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry is an outreach ministry of the people of God called upon to feed venison to the hungry among us nationwide.

All you need to do is take a field-dressed deer that you wish to donate to the Bon Ton Meat Market (115 South Camino Real Road, Uhland, near Kyle, 512-398-3810) and tell them that it is for Texas Hunters and Hunters Feeding the Hungry.  There is no cost to you.  They no longer take hogs.  For more information contact John Hilgers at 512-350-4011.

Hunters for the Hungry is a program of the Texas Association of Community Action Agencies, Inc.  It is a statewide wild game donation program that provides a healthy source of protein to Texans who need assistance obtaining well-balanced, nutritious meals.

Simply bring your field-dressed deer to a participating processing plant, tell the clerk that the animal is for the Hunters for the Hungry program, and pay the approximate $20.00 processing fee.  The meat will be given to low-income people.  Participating processing plants in the Austin area include Hudson’s Sausage Company and Texas Sausage Company.  They do not take hogs.  For more information e-mail or call them at 800-992-9767 or 512-462-2555.

Hunters Harvest is a group of people that utilize their skill, expertise, and love of hunting and fishing to feed hungry people served by non-profit organizations.  Since February 2005, Hunters’ Harvest has provided 93,000 lbs. of wild game and fish to organizations in our community.

Their purpose was to encourage hunters to donate fish and game to Get Together Partner Ministries feeding the hungry.  To donate see Pacto con Dios (below).  For more information contact Cathy Lawdanski or Wade Mattingly.

Pacto con Dios (A Pact with the Trinity) is based out of San Marcos.  They distribute any edible meat (deer, hogs, and birds), as long as it is field dressed and in good condition, to those that are unable to feed themselves along with sharing the gospel of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

There is no cost for donations but they are appreciated.  The meat needs to be delivered to San Marcos.  If you have a substantial amount they will pick it up.  They have a trailer with cold storage on it that can handle up to 50 deer.  Joe and Melissa Lee can be reached at 512-805-7544 (Home) and 512-738-6924 (Work).

Bible verse of the day

I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.
