Please remember our program when you go hunting this year.  Many people are struggling to make ends meet and your donation of this quality lean meat would be a big help.  See the donating deer heading to see where you can donate.


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 22 million quarter-pound servings of venison since our program began in 1991.  Our goal for this year is to provide 370,000 pounds of venison to people in need in Virginia.   If we are successful this will allow us to provide 1.48 million quarter-pound servings of lean nutritious meat. Please explore our website to see how you can get involved.
