There are so many people and organizations that work together to make the Venison Donation Coalition what it is today. We are a very blessed organization to have so much support.

Without the farmers and hunters, we would not have the natural resource (deer) to even start this program. Then there are processors who work with us to process and package the meat. The eight regional food banks distribute the meat to the food pantries, soup kitchens, and other organizations that feed the hungry. And we cannot forget the many individuals and organizations that donate the financial support in order for this program to sustain the numbers of lbs processed every year. Missing one partner would break the spool that keeps this wheel turning.

Although with the help of the Food Bank Association of New York, we have received grants in the past to help support the program, we can not continually rely on them. We need the support of the community to keep this program strong. Any support you can give, even a dollar can make a big difference in a person’s life. Please give if you can. There are many ways to donate, on this website (link website to secure donation), at your local licensing agent or Town Clerk through D.E.C.A.L.S., or send a check to Venison Donation Coalition, 3 East Pulteney Sq., Bath, NY 14810.
