Hunters Donate Meat to Feed the Needy in Delaware

Posted:

DOVER, Del.- Officials with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control said hunters donated 645 deer to the state’s Sportsmen Against Hunger Program during the 2013-2014 deer season.

According to DNREC, those donations provided more than 21,000 pounds of meat which will add up to almost 100,000 meals for needy individuals and families in Delaware. The Division of Fish and Wildlife staff distributed frozen ground venison to 30 charities and food pantries throughout the state.

Officials said although the number of donated deer was a little less this year, this season’s deer produced almost 2,500 pounds more meat.

Since it was founded in 1992, hunters participating in the Delaware Sportsmen Against Hunger program have donated about 421,000 pounds of venison, providing more than 1.5 million meals to those in need.
