Official Rules: This drawing is being held to encourage donations of deer to the Hunters for the Hungry program operated by Virginia Hunters Who Care, Inc. For each legally harvested deer a hunter donates at a participating processing location or collection site between the start of the 2015 Archery Season, Saturday October 3rd to the end of the General Firearms season on Saturday, January 2nd 2016 they will be given one ticket into this drawing. To be entered you must fill in the form completely. Processors may refuse to accept deer that have not been properly field dressed and cared for in a manner that insures quality useable meat. To help the program be as cost-effective as possible we ask that you donate mature large-bodied deer on which you have made a clean shot. This contest is not encouraging the harvesting of fawns! You may enter the contest as many times as you are able to legally harvest deer. Winners will be contacted by phone and posted on our website at www.h4hungry.org.

2015 utv winner j c martin

Thank you to all the hunters who donated deer and thank you to all the financial donors who gave funds for processing. Our final total for the 2014 season was 238,972 pounds of venison allowing us to provide 955,888 quarter pound servings! We are very grateful for your help!  Everyone who received nutritious venison because of your efforts are very thankful for your kindness and your compassion.

This truckload of venison was packaged by Arrington’s Orchard and given to Hunting Creek Baptist church’s Food Pantry Thank you hunters! We appreciate everyone’s efforts to make this quality meat available.

If you receive a kill permit for deer  and would like to donate the deer please contact our office 800-352-4868 or hunt4hungry@cs.com.  We may be able to provide a refrigerated trailer and/or help with transportation or the field-dressing of the deer.  Meat is greatly needed and we would like to see  the deer that are taken through these permits utilized to feed people in need.


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.
