The National Capital Chapter supports the Virginia Hunters for the Hungry program with both monetary contributions and
venison donations from our chapter members. This year the chapter made a donation to Hunters for the Hungry of $2500.00.
Our donation is used to cover the cost of processing, distribution, and the overhead expenses of operation (less than 20% of
total expenses).Additionally, thousands of pounds of venison are donated by our members yearly. Please let our
Humanitarian Chairperson, Connie Graham know when you make a donation of venison.
|ABOUT HUNTERS FOR THE HUNGRY
The hunters of Virginia have made a substantial effort in the fight against hunger, donating a total of 5,565,824 pounds of venison
since the program began in 1991! Virginia hunters have made a tremendous difference to our brothers and sisters in need, providing
enough venison for 22.2 million quarter pound servings.
The donation of large bodied mature deer help us to use the financial gifts that are given to the program cost-effectively. Donating is
simple – just take your legally harvested and field dressed deer to one of our collection points or to one of our participating
processors. Processors inspect, cut, wrap, and freeze the meat (most charge a fee reduced from normal rates). The venison is
distributed through agencies already equipped for and in the business of feeding the needy. The food provided is a quality high
protein, low-fat item not normally available.
Hunters for the Hungry operates by solicitation of successful hunters to donate venison. The program is a
certified 501 (C) (3) organization and to function best, funds are raised to cover the costs of having
professional meat processors (butchers) accept, cut, wrap, and freeze the deer donated by hunters in
Virginia. Hunters for the Hungry is not supported by any state funds nor are they a United Way Agency.
The Chapter also purchases a table at the Annual Hunters for the Hungry Banquet each year. If you are interested in
attending and sitting at the NCC - SCI Chapter table at the 2017 event please contact Connie Graham.
Your donation of deer means so much to people who are struggling to make ends meet. Thank you for sharing your harvest so that
others can have quality food to eat. Your kindness and compassion are greatly appreciated.
