Hunters for the Hungry


Mission and Vision

Hunters for the Hungry fights hunger and promotes environmental stewardship by distributing donated venison to Texans in need. We lead a unified effort for a hunger-free Texas.

Goal: To ensure adequate nutritious food for all Texans, improve the health and financial stability of the communities we serve, and engage all stakeholders in advocating for hunger solutions.


Who We Are – The Feeding Texas network is the largest hunger-relief organization in Texas. Together with 21 member food banks, we reach over 5 million Texans annually with food and resources.

Hunters for the Hungry has provided over 10 million servings of venison to Texans in need. Through the program, hunters can drop off legally tagged, field-dressed whitetail or mule deer to participating meat processors. The partner processors prepare the venison for distribution through local food banks.

• DONATE – Financially supporting the program with a monetary donation helps us to provide hungry Texas with lean, healthy protein! Funds help cover the costs of processing donated deer meat that goes to hungry families.
• HUNTERS – Bring your legally tagged, field-dressed whitetail or mule deer to a participating meat processor; no cost to you!
• PROCESSORS – Become a participating processor by contacting your local food bank to sign up.
• Hunger Relief Agencies – Food banks, soup kitchens, food pantries, and other hunger relief agencies are eligible to receive venison donations. Contact your local food bank to be added to the list of recipient agencies.
