About Us


Fillet for Friends seeks to reduce hunger and empower marginalized communities. We achieve this by working with local fishing and hunting communities to provide fish, wild game, education, and community resources for the under-served.

100% of the proceeds from your purchase support our mission to collect and donate fresh fish to hungry members of the Florida community.  



As Fillet for Friends looks to mitigate hunger across Florida, the organization relies on the donation of excess fresh fish from local anglers and tournaments. While we do promote conservation in the fishing community, at times anglers catch surplus fish that is wasted.
