OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Hunters Against Hunger is a cooperative program with YOU, your local processor, and the Wildlife Department, that provides high-quality meals to Oklahoma’s hungry.
How the program works:
Hunters who legally harvest a deer during any of this year’s deer seasons can donate the meat to feed hungry Oklahomans. Simply deliver the deer to the nearest participating meat processor (click here for the list of participating meat processors) after you check in the deer. To help with processing charges, each donator is asked to contribute a tax-deductible $10 to assist with the program. That fulfills your obligation unless you wish to pay the entire processing fee, which is a tax-deductible donation as well. The ground venison will then be distributed to the needy through a network of qualified, charitable organizations.
Participation by meat processors and hunters is the key to success in helping feed Oklahoma’s hungry. We also would like to pay special thanks to the local food pantry networks of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma for their participation.
Processors who want to become more involved and would like more information about the Hunters Against Hunger (HAH) program, or to be added to the list, contact Tammy St. Yves at (405) 521-2730.
