Thanks to your help and hunter generosity, our certified deer processors produced an all-time record of 130,930 pounds of venison last season! Please help to keep up the exceptional work and get the word out that donating a deer to HSH helps feed the hungry!

Effective again for this season:

  1. Hunters are not required to pay a copay to donate a deer to the HSH program. For the hunter, the program is completely free.

  2. HSH deer processors are encouraged to be state inspected and are paid in full at the agreed-to rate.

  3. Food banks will take every pound of venison we can distribute to them. They are desperate for quality protein sources.

  4. All readable 2017-18 season deer donor receipts returned from our processors will be entered into the gift card drawings valued at $100 each to be held in 2018 at the start of the season.

End of season reports filed by participating butchers far exceeded our annual goal of 100,000. Hunters donated 3,337 deer last season, resulting in 130,930 pounds of ground venison for distribution to food banks and pantries. The HSH team has again accepted the challenge to expand our outreach to all 67 counties in the Commonwealth. It is our belief that the elimination of the $15 co-pay has provided the additional incentive for hunters to donate extra deer—made possible through partnership and support from our many sponsors, businesses and individual donations.

The HSH donation season starts in the fall with archery deer season and goes through the holiday season into muzzleloader and late archery season. To learn more about the program and obtain a list of participating meat processors visit the HSH Web site: http://www.sharedeer.org/meat-processors/.
