Taking aim at hunger - Hunter's Harvest

Hunting for a way to make a difference?

What is Hunter’s Harvest?
Many families have no dependable source of protein in their diets. Venison provides that protein and is also low in fat. Through the Mississippi Hunter’s Harvest Program, Mississippi sportsmen can provide this much needed dietary component to needy Mississippians.

Who Gets the Meat?
The Mississippi Food Network distributes donated venison through a network of local and statewide member churches and non-profit organizations throughout the state.

HUNTERS WIN by doing their part to help people in need and manage the resource.
PROCESSORS WIN by getting advertising and positive feedback for their involvement.
MISSISSIPPI FAMILIES WIN by receiving a valuable source of protein.

How can I help?

Hunter Pays
A field dressed or quartered deer may be donated by a hunter with the hunter agreeing to pay the venison processing fee.
