More than 3,000 lbs. of venison have been donated to Fayette Cares this hunting season by Hunters for the Hungry and Stengel Brothers Outdoors. To store the generous donations, Hunters for the Hungry purchased a freezer for the Fayette Cares emergency food pantry.
After hearing that the monthly Feeding Fayette program was closing, Fayette Cares began to explore possibilities to continue the important hunger relief services. Fayette Cares is committed to assuring families in need have a reliable resource for emergency food. With contributions from Hunters for the Hungry and other caring donors, the agency is preparing to respond to food requests in order to bridge the gap in services. The Fayette Cares emergency food pantry is available year-round and is working to expand storage and distribution.
