A cooperative program with your local processor, the Wildlife Department and YOU to provide high quality meals to Oklahoma’s hungry.
Here’s how the program works:
Hunters who legally harvest a deer during any of this year’s deer seasons can donate the meat to feed hungry Oklahomans. Simply deliver the deer to the nearest participating meat processor (listed below) after you check the deer at a hunter check station. To help with processing charges, each donator is asked to contribute a tax-deductible $10 to assist with the program. That fulfills your obligation unless you wish to pay the entire processing fee, which is a tax-deductible donation as well. The ground venison will then be distributed to the needy through a network of qualified, charitable organizations.
Participation by meat processors and hunters is the key to success to helping feed Oklahoma’s hungry. We also would like to pay a special thanks to local food pantry networks of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Community Food Bank of eastern Oklahoma for their participation.
