After back-to-back record-breaking seasons in 2015 and 2016, Hunters for the Hungry is positioned for another record-breaking year! The 2017 season starts with more than 80 processors in 66 counties throughout Tennessee.

Full Funding for the First Time

“For the first time ever, we have full funding in Tennessee. Every participating processor has funds to accept 10 or more donated deer at no cost to the hunter,” said Matt Simcox, Hunters for the Hungry manager.

Each donated deer provides as many as 168 venison meals for Tennesseans in need and is distributed to food banks and soup kitchens across the state.

Join the hunt to end hunger. Donate a deer at a participating processor or purchase a Deer Coin during the 2017 season.
