Welcome to the North Carolina Hunters for the Hungry website.  Our goal is to utilize an abundant natural resource to meet the needs of the communities in which we live.  

The process is simple. Hunters harvest deer from an overabundant population, meat processors produce high protein deer burger, food distribution networks distribute the meat to people who are in need.  We use tax deductible financial donations provided by corporations, organizations, and individuals to reimburse meat processors for their expense of producing the deer burger.  

The North Carolina Hunters for the Hungry, Inc (NCHFTH) is a voluntary, nonprofit corporation which exists for the following purposes:

  • To provide venison from North Carolina licensed meat processors to food relief organizations for the purpose of feeding the hungry people of North Carolina.

  • To compensate North Carolina licensed meat processors for processing legally harvested deer into venison burger.

  • To encourage North Carolina hunters to donate legally harvested deer to NC. Licensed meat processors.

  • To seek resources of revenue to compensate NC licensed meat processors.

  • To encourage the formation of individual chapters throughout North Carolina.


Why Deer?

  • America’s deer population, which numbered 20 million in 1990, has increased to 34 million in 2000. (1.25 million in N.C.)

  • Crop damage sustained by farmers and deer-auto collisions have risen dramatically.

  • The NC and other state Wildlife Resources Commissions have increased the harvest limits.

  • Hunting was found to be the only cost effective method of controlling and maintaining a stable deer population.

  • These factors have resulted in a surplus of nutritious venison that can be utilized to help feed the hungry in North Carolina.
