Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry is a highly successful program that has provided approximately one million meals to the state’s most needy citizens.

The program has been in place in Arkansas since 2000. The success of the program depends upon the generosity of hunters to donate venison and other wild game, cooperation from meat processors throughout the state, support from local food distribution organizations, and the financial contributions of businesses and other citizens.

Hunters can donate one deer or a portion of a deer from this season and help Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry so that the state’s less fortunate can have healthy meals. There are about 40 meat processors statewide who accept and process venison and other wild game from hunters for the program.

Donating venison and other wild game is a great way to make sure the meat is not wasted. Hunters sometimes let their harvested game sit in the refrigerator until it gets ruined by freezer burn or goes bad for other reasons. Providing a deer or a portion of a deer to a needy family, through AHFH, is a great way to make a successful trip afield even better. It’s a great feeling to bag a big buck or a doe. It’s even better to know that when you donate that deer to the program, dozens upon dozens of needy citizens will have great tasting, healthy meals.

Open the link below to view a list of processors who accept donated wild game for Arkansas Hunters Feeding The Hungry:
http://www.arkansashunters.org/processors.htm

If you donate to this organization either financially (no donation is too small), with wild game, or as a processor let us know and we'll put a special tag under your Forum name identifying you as an AHFH donor.

Also, if you are, or if you know, a processor who might be interested in participating in this program you can contact the organization through their website for details...... http://www.arkansashunters.org/

I have checked the processors list and the nearest to me is 60 miles away. Would I have to bring the deer there? Are feral pigs eligible for the propgram?

I am the northwest AR representative for AHFH. Unfortunately, yes, you would have to travel to the nearest processor that works with our organization. This is the biggest hurdle that we encounter for participation in the program. We have recently acquired a refrigerated truck, but we could only schedule pickups for large amounts.

And yes, the program will take ANY properly processed meat. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Thanks!

Jim

Do we pay to have the deer processed to? Or do we just drop it off at the processor?

Quote:
Who pays for the processing?
The hunter can pay the processor the cost of preparing the meat (usually $45 to $60) or if they prefer to have AHFH pay the meat processor, the hunter pays nothing. If a hunter wishes to keep a portion of the venison, the hunter must pay for the processing. AHFH encourages hunters to pay for the processing themselves, as a tax-deductible donation, because it will enable the program to put more food on the table for those who need it most.

We had a suburban hunt the last 3 years in Heber Springs and the mayor ask us to donate our first deer to the food bank, seemed like a good idea especally since he said it would have an effect on the people that decieded if we had any more hunts. I have been lucky and drew a tag two of the 3 years [first deer to the food bank both years] I have not heard what the total was this year but last year the heber hunters put just a little over 2000 lbs in.
I was suprised and proud as almost every hunter must have donated one as requested. Lee

Stopped and talked to them at their booth at the bb classic. Good guys and awesome program. Found that many places that aren't listed with them will work with a place that is listed if you don't want to leave your current proc. Also found out that they take hogs if the your place will process them.

With the way the economy is these days. I'm sure there will be a need of double the amount in most states for the Feeding The Hungry.

I have heard of this program but have not been able to donate anything yet. So the question I have is do you have to have the deer processed before you donate it? Or are all the donation places meat processing businesses? Thanks.

No, you don't have to have the deer processed before donating, rmcmurry. You don't have to do anything to the deer. All you have to do is drop the deer off at the processor. They will get some info from you and that's it........ I donated my buck this year and used the processor at Frenchport.
