West Virginia Ups Reimbursement for Hunter Food Program

Scott Baue
U.S. Department of Agriculture

Meat processors participating in the Hunters Helping the Hungry program are getting a larger reimbursement from the state.

The Division of Natural Resources says the reimbursement has been increased from $1.45 per pound of processed venison to $2 per pound. The change went into effect with the 2015 deer seasons.

The increase is funded by a grant from the nonprofit Governor's One Shot, Inc. The group organizes an annual fundraising event, the Governor's One Shot Whitetail Hunt, to support the food program.
