(KFOR NEWS  August 12, 2019)  Officials say hunters may begin donating deer to the Hunters Helping the Hungry program beginning Sept. 1 at 11 processor locations around the state.  The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says two more will accept deer for the program starting Nov. 1 and Nov. 16.

Hunters pay no processing costs for the processing. The program is funded solely by tax-deductible contributions.  Ground venison is distributed by charitable organizations to Nebraskans in need. Processors accept only whole deer in good condition to ensure a good yield of pure ground venison.

Learn more about the program and how to support it at the commission website or contact program coordinator Teresa Lombard at 402 471-5430 or [email protected].
