We would like to thank Leslie Carter and her staff at Shady Grove for hosting the event again this year and all their efforts in having everything run so smoothly for a successful event!

Thanks also to all the volunteers who made the event possible, event coordinator Glen Tharp, Tim Hall, James Rowen, Colton Rowen, R. D. Shifflett, Jr., Adrienne Gardner, and Seth Crum.

Thanks to Bedford Walmart #1399!

This special grant of $5,000 will allow the Hunters for the Hungry program to process and distribute over 21,000 quarter pound servings of venison to those who struggle with hunger in Bedford County and surrounding areas and throughout Virginia!

    We are a 501 (c) (3) charity that began in 1991 and operates statewide throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Through the generosity of hunters, farmers, and herd management programs, along with many financial contributors we have been able to provide over 6.9 MILLION pounds of high protein lean venison to men, women, and children who struggle with hunger! This volume of meat has afforded us the blessing of providing over 27.7 million quarter-pound servings of venison.  Our goal for 2019 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. By working together, hunters and non hunters alike can help us take deer and dollars, put the two together and make a difference in someone’s life in the most noble of ways, by giving them something to eat!

If you feel led to help us help others please consider a financial gift to support our feeding efforts!  For every dollar we raise or receive we can provide 4 quarter pound servings to someone less fortunate!
