Hunt Down Hunger Horizontal 1


HUNT DOWN HUNGER is a campaign promoted by our ministry to encourage increased hunter participation, and public support for hunters for the hungry programs. The goal is to increase the amount of nutritious game meat donated to feed the hungry of local communities across America.

Where can I donate deer and elk?

You can donate legally harvested deer and elk to hundreds of local butcher shops that participate with over 35 different hunters for the hungry programs across the country. These programs usually help pay the meat processing bills. The meat is then given to hunger relief charities and ministries such as food banks and homeless shelters.

How much meat do hunters donate each year?

An average deer can provide 40 pounds of lean, nutritious meat – enough for 160 meal servings of spaghetti sauce, tacos, chili, and more. Hunters collectively donate nearly 10 million meal servings of meat to the hungry each year. Currently just 1 to 2 percent of the deer harvested across the nation are donated. Together we can do so much more!
