INFOGRAPHIC: Venison Donations Provide 11 Million Meals to Less Fortunate

When you’re gathering with family and friends this holiday season, here’s a story to tell — one that would not be possible without the thoughtfulness and generosity of hunters. This infographic from NSSF shows that 11 million meals are provided annually to the less fortunate through donations of venison by hunters. Nearly 2.8 million pounds of game meat makes its way to shelters, food banks and church kitchens and onto the plates of those in need. In addition to this infographic, NSSF provides a video on how venison donations are made to charitable food organizations and a “Share The Harvest” website that includes information on how to make a donation.
