HUNTINGTON, WV (WOWK) – Each year during deer hunting season, West Virginia hunters donate unwanted meat to be used in homeless shelters, soup kitchens, or food pantries across the mountain state.
The “Hunters Helping the Hungry” program allows hunters to take whatever animal they’ve killed to be processed and ground into two-pound packages. There are nearly 20 certified processors across the state and one deer can make up to 142-meals.
The packages are then distributed through the Mountaineer Foodbank in Gassaway and the Facing Hunger Foodbank in Huntington to benefit the homeless community.
