Hunters for the Hungry
Tennessee Wildlife Federation’s Hunters for the Hungry program is a unique and creative way to provide healthy, much-needed protein to Tennessee’s citizens in need while helping to manage the state’s deer herd. We partner with certified wild game processors across the state who in turn receive donated venison during white-tailed deer season, process the meat free or at a reduced rate, and make it available to local food banks and soup kitchens.
Since 1998, Hunters for the Hungry has provided more than 8.7 MILLION SERVINGS of venison to Tennesseans in need!
With a Deer Coin, the process of donating a deer is even easier. The Deer Coin also makes a great gift and is a fantastic way to support hunger relief in Tennessee.
Whether you’re a hunter, a processor, or simply a concerned citizen who wants to make a difference, you can be a part of this amazing program.
