Wanted: Hunters to help hungry Hoosiers
More than ever, families are struggling to buy groceries. Food banks, pantries and soup kitchens continue to work to protect the most vulnerable and under-served area residents.
These hunger relief agencies continue to face increased demand during these uncertain times. Low-income families and the elderly are most at risk. With schools closing, job disruptions causing loss of wages and seniors isolated in their homes, many are experiencing shortages in their food budgets.
Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry reminds hunters and landowners about its deer donation program.
After you’ve filled your freezer, please help us to feed those in need in your area by donating to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry’s “Meat” the Need initiative, encourages those with Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry.
Just take your deer to your local, participating meat processor and tell them you would like to donate it to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry. There is no charge to you. Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry partners with 85 meat processors statewide and encourages the donation of large game and livestock to the program, raises financial support to pay processing fees on these donations and gives this meat to local hunger relief agencies.
