Hoosiers Feeding Hungry reminds about its deer donation program

Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry reminds hunters and landowners about its deer donation program.

Hunters can help the organization feed those in need within the community by donating to the Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry’s “Meat” the Need program.

Donors can take their deer to a local meat processor or butcher shop and tell them they would like to donate it to the Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry program. There is no charge to donors. Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry will pay the processing fees and give this nutritious meat to local hunger relief agencies.
