Double T Outfitters Supports Donating Whitetail Meat to Hunters for the Hungry to Help Feed Needy Texans
If you plan on Trophy Whitetail hunting this Fall, but don’t wish to transport your game meat back home, there are several options for hunters so that their harvest does not go unused. Double T Outfitters supports donating whitetail meat to Hunters for the Hungry. This non-profit organization is a program of the Texas Food Bank Network that provides healthy protein to Texans in need.
According to the Texas Association of Community Action Agencies, 1 in 5 Texans struggle to afford food. Hunters for the Hungry fights to eliminate hunger and malnutrition at state and local levels while providing a way for hunters and outdoorsman to help their community. The organization works with hunters, meat processors, local hunger relief agencies, and state government agencies. Hunters can donate legally harvested, tagged, and field-dressed game by delivering it to a participating local processor and paying a nominal fee to cover the cost of the processing. This fee may be tax deductible, so check with your local tax advisor. Packaged meat will then be distributed to a local hunger relief agency and given to those in need. Meat is sent to food banks, churches, shelters and other distribution programs.
Hunters for the Hungry was founded in 1990. The program was taken over by the Texas Food Bank in 2013. Over the past 20 years, this program has distributed more than 2 million pounds of venison to those in need in Texas alone. During the 2013-2014 season, close to 100 processors across the state helped hunters donate over 100,000 pounds of meat to the program.
While hunting at Double T Outfitters, if you wish to participate in Hunters for the Hungry, simply let your guide know, and we’ll help take care of the rest.
