Texas Hunters for the Hungry provides venison to needy

This year, the Texas Hunters for the Hungry program provided 153,082 pounds of venison to nearly 100 organizations that serve low-income people across Texas. That is more than 600,000 servings of lean protein in the diets of those hungry, or at risk of hunger. The program, administered by the Texas Association of Community Action Agencies Inc. (TACAA), has exceeded 9 million servings of venison over the last two decades.

Hunters for the Hungry thanks the hunters and participating meat processors for helping alleviate hunger in their local communities. For most food pantries and the families they serve, meat items are hard to come by and relatively expensive. Because venison donations are distributed free of charge, it helps stretch both the food assistance organization’s and the family’s budgets by not having to buy meat. Dollars can be leveraged for other needed resources.

As another hunting season approaches, Hunters for the Hungry encourages hunters and meat processors to participate. 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 2012-13 season. 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.
