Hunters for the Hungry

Check the Box and Donate to Hunters for the Hungry

Sportsmen and women in Virginia are able to contribute voluntarily to those in need by making a donation to the Hunters for the Hungry program when they purchase their hunting and fishing licenses. Donations to Hunters for the Hungry may also be made online at any time.

Hunters for the Hungry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit association that provides donated venison to people in need across Virginia. The group was established in 1991 and, since then, has provided more than 16.8 million servings of venison.

In addition to financial contributions, successful hunters donate deer to Hunters for the Hungry. Hunters for the Hungry accepts thousands of pounds of deer annually; however due to a shortage of funds to process and package the meat, Hunters for the Hungry is unable to accept thousands more.

These voluntary donations provide the needed funds to help bridge this gap. The donation is not only tax-deductible, but also makes a big difference in the lives of many Virginians.

Consider making a donation to Hunters for the Hungry when purchasing your license this year!
