HELP FEED THE HUNGRY, DONATE TO THE VENISON DONATION COALITION

The season opener is here and the Venison Donation Coalition wishes you a Happy Hunting Season. We hope you share your success with us by donating a deer, or even a few pounds to our program.  You can find a local processor on our website at www.VenisonDonation.org or call 1-866-862-3337.

 Financial donations are appreciated and tax deductible. Every dollar that is donated to the Venison Donation Coalition is used towards processing the venison.  With approximately 500,000 deer hunters in New York State, imagine if each hunter donates just $1 how financially sound the program would be. Venison could be processed and the hungry would be able to have highly nutritious meat on their tables.

Donations can be made through your Town Clerk’s office or anywhere hunting and fishing licenses are sold. Just be sure to inform the D.E.C.A.L.S. licensing agent that you wish to make a donation to support the Venison Donation Program. All donations through D.E.C.A.L.S. are deposited directly into the Venison Donation Fund. Donations can also be accepted through their secure website, www.venisondonation.org or send a check payable to: Venison Donation Coalition, Inc., 3 East Pulteney Sq., Bath, NY 14810.   Again, please don’t forget to tell the clerk you would like to donate to New York’s Venison Donation Program.

Since 1999, the Venison Donation Coalition has been highly successful in its goal to feed the hungry throughout New York State. We have processed an average of 36 tons of venison each year and more than 4 million servings of highly nutritious  meat was provided to individuals and children in need.          Please help to keep the Venison Donation Coalition successful in your neighborhood. Donate today! One dollar goes a long way to help curb hunger throughout New York State.      

The Venison Donation Coalition, Inc. is a non-profit organization that coordinates and funds the efforts of venison processing to feed the hungry throughout New York State. For more information, please call 1-866-862-3337.

 
Venison Donation Coalition Seeks New Processors

The Venison Donation Coalition has been providing highly nutritious ground venison to New York State’s Food Banks for the past 14 years.  They have averaged approximately 39 tons per year.  This venison ends up in your local food pantries and soup kitchens to help your neighbors in need.

 

As the Venison Donation Coalition prepares for the 2014 deer season, they would like to expand their participating processor list.  It’s very obvious the processors are key players in this program.  Without the participating processors accepting donated deer throughout New York, this program wouldn’t exist.

 

 

If you know deer processors in your area, please contact them about joining with the Venison Donation Coalition as a participating processor.  The ground venison is picked up from the processors by the Food Banks and processors are paid per pound for their efforts.

 

Please help us “beef up” our processor participation by contacting the Venison Donation Coalition as soon as possible.  Their Contact information is:  Toll Free 1-866-862-DEER (3337), Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

BUT DON'T FORGET TO DONATE $1.00 TO FEED THE HUNGRY

Deer hunting season is a wonderful time of year. Some will even say the best time of year - solitude in your treestand, surrounded by Mother Nature. As every hunter will attest, there is nothing like it. While many are fortunate to bag a deer and have meat in the freezer for the year, many New Yorkers are going hungry. Many parents struggle to feed their children. Here’s where you come in. Since 1999, the Venison Donation Coalition has been highly successful in its goal to feed the hungry throughout New York State. They have processed and average of 38 tons of venison each year and more than 3.3 million servings of highly nutritious meat was served to individuals and children in need.

How Venison is Distributed

The Venison Donation Coalition, Inc. distributes ground venison through the eight regional food banks serving the different counties throughout New York State. Without the Food Banks, the Venison Donation Program would have a difficult time getting the ground venison to those in need.  The food banks pick up the ground venison from the participating processors and distribute it through its member agencies (soup kitchens, food pantries, churches, senior living, etc.) to those in need.
