Since the program began in 1991, hunters of Virginia have given so generously of their harvest and have been so instrumental in helping Hunters for the Hungry in their fight against hunger. In 2021 the program celebrated 30 YEARS of providing high protein essential red meat to so many Virginians. To date, with the support of hunters and nonhunters alike, the program has now processed and distributed over 7,700,000 pounds of venison. This amount of meat equates to over 30,900,000 quarter-pound servings being provided to men, women, children, the elderly, the homeless, and veterans throughout Virginia.

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.
