Why Mississippi Hunter’s Harvest?
Many families and individuals have no dependable source of protein in their diets. Venison is a valuable source of protein and is usually low in fat. Through the Mississippi Hunter’s Harvest, Mississippi hunters can provide this component of the daily diet to needy Mississippians.
Who gets the meat?
Mississippi Food Network distributes food through a network of member churches and nonprofit organizations in the state.
How can sportsmen and women get involved?
