HOW TO DONATE VENISON
Option One: Donate an entire deer- HFTH pays the processing fee
If you would like to assist the program by donating deer all you have to do is take your legally harvested, field-dressed deer to a participating meat processor or specified collection point (see participating processor list). There is a simple form to fill out stating you are donating your deer. Hunters for the Hungry will be billed for the processing costs. The meat will then be given to a local feeding program so that it can be distributed to people in need. To help our program be as cost- effective as possible please donate large bodied animals. Processors reserve the right to refuse any carcass not properly cared for.
Option Two: Donate a package or two from a deer that you have had processed for your personal use
When you have a deer processed for your family consider donating a portion of the meat to Hunters for the Hungry. Every package makes a difference. As little as 1 pound will help. The processor will store this meat until it is picked up for distribution to the hungry.
Option Three: Donate an entire deer plus the cost of processing
In addition to donating a deer at one of the participating meat processors or collection points send the $45.00 cost of processing to the Hunters for the Hungry program. A donation form is provided on the website if you would like to make a financial donation. Your gift is tax deductible and you will receive a receipt for your tax records
.Option four: Donate deer from damage permit harvest
