Alabama Hunters Help the Hungry


Alabama hunters again have the opportunity to help others while they enjoy their outdoor pursuits. The Hunters Helping the Hungry program provides a way that Alabama hunters can give thousands of pounds of ground venison to needy families and individuals in the state.

Alabama’s abundant deer population, generous bag limits, and long hunting season combine to allow Alabama hunters to stock their own freezers and share their game with the needy. Posters are placed in many sporting goods stores and venison processors to remind hunters of their opportunity to donate a deer. The deer is processed into ground venison, packaged and frozen in quantities not exceeding four pounds each, ready to be distributed to the food banks. There is no charge to the hunter for processing the deer, but hunters may voluntarily pay for the processing to provide more venison for food banks to distribute. Processors throughout the state are participating in the program and more are being added to the list each season.

Begun as a joint project of the Governor’s Office, the National Rifle Association, the Phillip Morris Company, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and the Alabama Conservation and Natural Resources Foundation, the program raised funds through the Governor’s Hunt for Hunger benefit quail hunts. Since the program’s beginning in 2000, over 217,000 pounds of ground venison have been donated to Alabama Food Banks in the state.

Donating food to the needy is just one of the many ways hunters help this state. We encourage all Alabama deer hunters to participate in this program. Hunters who know of local processors not participating in the Hunters Helping the Hungry program are asked to encourage their processors to become involved. It’s not too late to be included in the program. Call (334) 242-3467 for more information and to sign on as a participating processor.
