GHFTH Main Text

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 between October 15 - January 13. The 2016-2017 drop-off locations are listed 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.
