meat arringtons orchard

Thank you hunters! Hunting Creek Baptist Church’s Food Pantry picked up this truckload of venison from Arrington’s Orchard.  It will be distributed to those in need in Bedford County. We appreciate everyone’s efforts to make this quality meat available.

We are a 501 (c) (3) charity that operates statewide.  Through the generosity of Virginia hunters and many financial contributors we have been able to provide over 23 million quarter-pound servings of venison since our program began in 1991.  Our goal for this year is to provide 325,000 pounds of venison to people in need in Virginia.   If we are successful this will allow us to provide 1.3 million quarter-pound servings of lean nutritious meat. Please explore our website to see how you can get involved.
