Founded in 2012, Hunters Helping the Hungry is a donor-driven program that provides venison to Nebraskans in need. This program allows hunters to donate deer at participating processors. The deer is processed into ground venison, which is then distributed to food pantries and soup kitchens. The processing is paid for entirely by cash contributions.
