NRA's Hunters for the Hungry Clearinghouse
« on: January 23, 2004, 02:58:11 PM »
"Hunters who wish to share their game with those less privileged may take advantage of NRA's Hunters for the Hungry Clearinghouse -- a list of more than 120 game sharing programs and networks throughout the country.
Game-sharing programs may be known by different names, but they do basically the same thing -- link hunters, meat processors and food banks or charitable organizations that channel meat to the hungry. NRA's clearinghouse makes it easy for hunters to find places to drop all or part of their meat and ensure it is distributed to those who need it.

NRA has been involved with Hunters for the Hungry programs since 1991, providing logistical guidance, volunteer recruitment and financial support. From 1995 to 2003, The NRA Foundation distributed $93,020 in grants to Hunters for the Hungry programs in 14 states.

"Whatever we can do to help eliminate even one single person going hungry is a victory," said Bob Davis, manager of NRA's Hunter Services Department. "Our goal is to see that as many hunters as possible take advantage of this program. It's one of the best ways that you as a hunter can give back to your community," added Davis.

Sportsmen can not only donate game meat in their local area, but make financial contributions as well. Donations given to a game-sharing program are used to offset the costs of processing and delivery of game meat in the sportsman's area. To find a game-sharing program in your community, or learn how you can start a program in your area, call NRA's Hunter Services Information Clearinghouse at 800-492-HUNT or log on to www.nrahq.org/hunting/hunterhungry.asp. To learn more about The NRA Foundation, visit www.nrafoundation.org or call 800-423-6894."

This is very interesting! At times, we destroy deer injured by traffic and can't find anyone to take the deer. Especially in warm weather, we just have them hauled off and dumped. The deer then becomes a free meal for an over population of coyotes. I am going to contact the folks and see if we can impliment something in our area. Our HQ could have a standing order to contact them. Another problem, the way it is operating now is, how do you find someone to come get a deer at 2 or 3 in the morning? Very nice subject to post for us, Gutpile! :!:
