About Us

Welcome!

Texas hunters are generous people and a big part of hunting is sharing the meat.

Many times, hunters and game ranches are required bear the cost of processing donated wild game. We feel this limits the amount of game donated.

The vision of Hunters For Good, Inc. is to continue developing an active wild game donation program that works with meat processors to provide individual hunters and managed game ranches no cost processing of donated wild game.

Through donations to HFG, the processing fees and the donations of processed meat to food pantries come at no cost to the hunters, game ranches or the organizations that feed those in need.

Our program encourages wild game donation, helps avoid waste of harvested wild game and provides much needed lean protein to areas of Texas not normally served by game donation programs.

Hunters For Good estimates a typical Texas deer yielding 50-pounds of processed venison will make approximately 200 servings of lean protein. This program supports a long-term solution to food insecurity by utilizing a naturally occurring and oftentimes wasted food source.

Texas has more deer than any other stateTHE NEED
The USDA 2011-2013 U.S. national average food insecurity rate is 14.6%. Texas has a disturbingly high rate of 17.6%. This means that over 4.6 million Texans don’t have access to enough food for an active, healthy life by all members of the household, according to research by Feeding America (2009-2012).

Per Feeding America, poverty and hunger in America often go hand in hand, but poverty is not the ultimate determinant of food insecurity. People living above the poverty line are often at risk of hunger as well. Food insecurity may reflect a household’s need to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as housing or medical bills, and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods. Research demonstrates that unemployment, rather than poverty, is a better predictor of food insecurity among people living in the United States.
