Hunters for the Hungry provided 567,000 meals for Tennessee’s needy during the last deer season, bringing the total to 8.2 million since the program was started in 1998.

Managed by the Tennessee Wildlife Federation, Hunters for the Hungry arranges for commercially processed venison to be donated to churches, charities and other organizations, which distribute it to the needy in their communities. Second Harvest is among the participants.
