The Pennsylvania Game Commission is making it easier to donate to the Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH) program by eliminating the requested $15 processing fee from donating hunters.
The HSH program allows Pennsylvania hunters to donate some of their acquired venison to those in need. Since its establishment in 1991, the program has distributed more than 4,000 pounds of ground venison to soup kitchens, pantries, missions and needy families. This equates to almost 200,000 meals donated to food banks, churches and other social services programs which feed those in need.
In order to participate, hunters must simply take their deer to a participating meat processor and identify how much of their deer meat to donate to HSH.
