Donating Deer


The hunters of Virginia have made a substantial effort in the fight against hunger, donating a total of 6,668,169 pounds of venison since the program began in 1991! You have made a tremendous difference to our brothers and sisters in need, providing enough venison for 26.6 million quarter pound servings.

Donating is simple – just take your legally harvested and field dressed deer to one of our collection points or to one of our participating processors.  The donation of large bodied mature deer help us to use the financial gifts that are given to the program cost-effectively.

Please see the following under this menu- How to Donate and the List of Participating Processors.

Your donation of deer means so much to people who are struggling to make ends meet.  Thank you for sharing your harvest so that others can have quality food to eat. Your kindness and compassion are greatly appreciated.
