Hunters Can Donate Deer to Program to Feed Families

Scott Baue

West Virginia's Division of Natural Resources says hunters can donate deer to a program that benefits needy families.

Hunters can deliver legally harvested deer to the nearest meat processor participating in the Hunters Helping the Hungry program. A list of processors is available at www.wvdnr.gov/Hunting/HHH.shtm .

Venison is deboned, ground and frozen in two-pound packages. Food banks pick up the venison and distribute it to more than 500 food programs throughout West Virginia.

Since its inception in 1992, Hunters Helping the Hungry has provided nearly 900,000 pounds of venison for more than 1.2 million family-style meals.
