Please help us provide nutritious meals for families in need. Protein is the greatest need for food relief organizations. During deer hunting season, we accept deer donations from hunters to partner processing facilities. LNWC pays to have these deer processed, packaged, and distributed to partner agencies across the four-county service area. Venison is a desirable option for food relief organizations because it’s a high quality, natural protein source that’s versatile to use. This venison provides nutritional meals to families facing food insecurity, while helping farmers manage deer.
Processing one deer costs $50 and makes, on average, 160 meals.
Our first year, 70 deer were donated.
Our second year, 100 deer were donated.
Last year, 215 deer were donated, enough venison for over 34,000 meals!
The program is growing and making a huge impact to those in need, but as a nonprofit organization we do not have the funds to keep up without help!
Please consider donating to help cover the cost of deer processing. LNWC and the HOOF program thank you for your contribution!
