Hunters for the Hungry
Hunters for the Hungry is a statewide hunger relief program administered by Feeding Texas. The program provides healthy, lean protein to needy Texans through a partnership between Feeding Texas, Texas food banks, meat processors, food assistance providers, land-owners, hunters and state agencies.
Through the program, hunters can donate legally tagged, field-dressed deer to participating processors. A processor may be eligible for partial reimbursement of processing costs, subject to availability of funds. Meat processors prepare and package the venison, then contact the local food bank who distributes it to needy families and individuals.
