The Sportsman’s Benevolence Fund helps get venison to those in need. The program is simple.

  1. Enjoy a deer hunting experience.
  2. Harvest a deer.
  3. Drop off the field-dressed deer at a local participating processor (search for a processor). 
  4. Processing fees are paid for by the Sportsman's Benevolence Fund.
  5. The processor will create healthy venison burger to distribute to food banks.

You can learn more about processors in your area through Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry and the Dubois County Sportsman’s Club.
