Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry asking hunters, landowners for deer meat donations
Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry is asking hunters and landowners to consider donating their meat to the nonprofit's deer donation program in order to help feed Indiana residents who struggle with food insecurity.
Participants are asked to take their deer to a local participating meat processor and tell them you want to donate it to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry.
There is no charge to those who take meat to the processor.
After the meat is processed, the donation will be given to local hunger relief agencies.

- Reduction Zone: Sept. 15, 2021-Jan. 31, 2022 (where open)
