Hunters in Pennsylvania will once again have the opportunity to feed hungry families across the state for free this hunting season, courtesy of CONSOL Energy. In partnership with Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH) and Hunger-Free Pennsylvania (HFPA), the company is calling on all hunters to donate extra deer.

Hunters who want to participate can take their harvest to an approved meat processor, where the game will be refined into ground venison and distributed by Pennsylvania food banks, soup kitchens, churches and social services programs.

Beginning with the 2014 deer sesons, caring hunters who annually help feed hungry Pennsylvanians by donating their extra venison through Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH) will discover an easier process at virtually no cost. Their compassionate gesture will gain additional recognition as a valuable wildlife resource is utilized wisely.

In an average hunting season, the HSH program channels approximately 100,000 pounds of processed venison through the state’s 20 regional food banks. That meat provides more than 750,000 meals annually.

“Hunger-Free Pennsylvania is proud of their long standing partnership with Hunters Sharing the Harvest and so appreciate their efforts to obtain and increase the availability of this high-protein nutritious food for our low-income Pennsylvania neighbors,” stated Sheila Christopher, Executive Director, Hunger-Free Pennsylvania.

The HSH donation season starts in the fall with archery deer season and goes through the holiday season into muzzleloader and late archery season.
