Hunters for the Hungry accepting deer donations
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Hunters for the Hungry program is accepting deer donations for the deer season.
The Tennessee Wildlife Federation, who hosts the program, says there are over 55 places you can bring your deer donation.
The TWF says hunters can drop off a whole deer donation at no cost. The federation adds that if donations go over the season’s available funding, hunters can pay a reduced, $60 processing fee or redeem a Deer Coin.
“We’ve added seven new processors this year across the state which means more sportsmen and women can donate their harvest to help feed families in need,” said Matt Simcox, Hunters for the Hungry manager. “Every deer donated provides 168 servings of lean healthy protein to those who need it most.”
