Get in touch with your state-level programs with the Hunters for the Hungry Clearinghouse
Fairfax, Virginia - Assuming things go well and you have a pretty successful hunting season, what are you going to do with all your extra game meat? Have you thought about donating some to families in need?
Each year, hunters, sportsmen's associations, meat processors, state meat inspectors and hunger relief organizations come together to bring millions of pounds of venison to homeless shelters, soup kitchens and food banks throughout the United States. The names of these programs vary from state to state, so NRA's Hunters Services Department created the Hunters for the Hungry Information Clearinghouse to help connect those with food to those who distribute it.
In addition, the staff of the NRA Hunter Services Department works in the field with state governmental agencies to conduct evisceration and meat processing preparation of whitetail deer.
So, how can you help? If you'd like to show that you and your fellow hunters care about your community, and would like to help share extra game meat with deserving families in your area, get involved today! Whether you donate meat, money or time, your generosity is sure to have an impact.
