Georgia Hunters for the HungrySince 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 19 – January 12 (during normal business hours). The 2019-2020 drop-off locations are listed below.
