Hunters for the Hungry feeds millions

This year, the Texas Hunters for the Hungry program provided 178,662 pounds of venison to more than 100 organizations that serve low-income people across Texas. The program, administered by the Texas Association of Community Action Agencies Inc. (TACAA) has exceeded 2 million pounds of venison donated over the last two decades.

According to the USDA, Texas has the second highest rate of food insecurity in the nation, with one in six households struggling to afford food. In a survey of its food bank members, Feeding America stated that over half of the clients served reported having to choose between paying for food and paying for utilities or heating fuel. In a time when food banks and pantries are seeing an increase in the demand for emergency food assistance, deer donations through Hunters for the Hungry are proving invaluable in adding meat to food-insecure households while stretching agency and household budgets.

Hunters for the Hungry thanks the hunters and participating meat processors for helping alleviate hunger in their local communities and dishing up almost 9 million servings since the program’s inception. Hunters take their legally harvested deer to a participating meat processor, pay a nominal fee to cover basic processing costs, and the meat processor does the rest. Donations are ground into burger, packaged, and stored for local food assistance providers to pick up. All meat donated to the program is distributed to families and individuals in need through local food banks, food pantries, and soup kitchens.

Qualified meat processors are needed to process deer donations for the 2011-12 season. Hunters for the Hungry provides everything needed to package donations, including a list of agencies to call when donations are available. Interested processors and hunters may call 1-800-992-9767, ext. 506, or visit www.tacaa.org/hunters-for-the-hungry to find out more.
