Venison is the ultimate high-protein, low-fat, organic meat. YOU CAN HELP get this quality protein from the woods, to a local foodbank, and onto the tables of those in your community that need it most. Participate by:

  • Donating a deer to a participating processor near you.
  • Donating to GWF or becoming a sponsor. A $15 gift will process enough venison for 40 meals.
  • Promoting the program and identifying new processors in underserved areas.

GWF is experiencing a Hunters for the Hungry funding shortage for the 2023-2024 hunting season. Please consider donating. For every $10 donation, you can supply protein-rich venison to feed approximately 25 hungry children and adults in Georgia.

When fully funded, a typical GHFTH season provides approximately 57,000 meals to Georgia families in need. A minimum of $30,000 is required each year to make this happen. (That’s a bargain price of about $.53 per meal ) We need your help to keep GHFTH operating this year. Will you become a sponsor and help GWF keep Hunters for the Hungry growing strong?

2022-23 Summary:

Thank you to all of our sponsors, hunters, and processors for the 2022-2023 hunting season. Together, we provided 4,791 pounds of venison to Georgia food banks and fed approximately 19,164 high-quality, protein-rich meals to Georgians in need. Twelve processors across the state participated in the program.

Georgia Hunters for the Hungry


Since 1993, hunters have been bringing meat to the tables of those in need through the Georgia Hunters for the Hungry program. Georgia Wildlife Federation has been a sponsor of GHFTH since it began by assisting in promoting the program and raising funds to pay processors for venison delivered to food banks.

Thank you to our sponsors & partners:
