Calling all hunters! Each deer season, all deer taken in north central Indiana and processed through Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry (HFH) are donated to Food Finders Food Bank for distribution to families in need. The meat from just ONE deer will provide meat for 200 meals! That would feed a family of four for several weeks. Simply take your deer in to a processor and request that the meat be donated to HFH. The hunter in not charged for the processing. Find a local participating processor here. Processors throughout the area have agreed to process the meat at a deeply discounted rate of $50 per deer. Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry raises funds to pay for the processing fees.
