Georgia Hunters for the HungrySM

Since 1993, hunters have been bringing meat to the tables of those in need through the Georgia Hunters for the Hungry program. This successful program continues to provide opportunities during hunting season for hunters to share their harvest with those in need. 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.


Hunters interested in participating in the GHFTH program can bring field-dressed deer to any of the designated drop-off locations below.


If you would like to make a donation to support the cost of processing for next year (a deer costs roughly $50 to process), you may mail a check to the Georgia Wildlife Federation and mark it Hunters For The Hungry or use our online giving options.

Georgia Hunters For The Hungry Adds Local Deer Processors

Covington – November 10, 2014 – Cooling fall temperatures have whitetail deer on the move, giving deer hunters the perfect opportunity to participate in the Georgia Hunters For The Hungry program. GHFTH is a partnership between the Georgia Wildlife Federation, Georgia Wildlife Resources Division of DNR, and the Georgia Food Bank Association that provides sportsmen a way to donate harvested deer to Georgia’s food banks.

“We are excited to be able to expand the GHFTH program through the addition of two deer processors in middle Georgia,” says Todd Holbrook, president and CEO of the Georgia Wildlife Federation. He added that this latest increase brings the number of cooperating deer processors to 11 statewide. These processors serve the food banks that serve 145 of Georgia’s counties.

Holbrook added that this expansion of the program was made possible by recent sponsorships from Central Georgia and Snapping Shoals electric membership corporations and base support from the Walmart Foundation and the Bi-Lo Holdings Foundation.

GHFTH has been providing high quality protein to hungry Georgians since 1993. Since the inception, hunters have donated over 325,000 pounds of ground venison for distribution to the needy. Processing expenses are provided by the program. Local deer hunters interested in sharing the harvest can bring deer to any of these processors listed above.
