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?
Pitch in a Pound
Hunters can choose to donate a pound or two of ground venison at the time of pick-up. Participating processors will take donations and store them until distributed by the Mississippi Food Network.
A field dressed or quartered deer may be donated by a hunter with the hunter agreeing to pay the venison processing fee.
Hunter’s Harvest Pays
A deer may be donated and the processing fee can be paid through the Hunter’s Harvest program. Funding for this method of donation is raised through grants, businesses, and personal contributions. Please take a look at the Processors who require donated deer to be field dressed or skinned.
