Donate Your Harvested Deer to Help Reduce Hunger in Pennsylvania

From the November DCNR newsletter, Hunters Sharing the Harvest is Pennsylvania’s venison donation program. Hunters can share their extra venison through a statewide network of participating butchers to food pantries and community assistance centers across the state.

Hunters can drop off a whole field-dressed deer at one of the participating processors. There is no fee to donate a deer thanks to sponsorship support from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, Pennsylvania Game Commission, business partners, sportsmen’s clubs, and thousands of individuals who provide much needed financial contributions each year.

All Pennsylvanians, whether they hunt or not, are urged to donate tax-deductible financial contributions to the Hunters Sharing the Harvest program to help meet the cost of processing deer for the program. For every $25 donated, 100 meals can be served.
