On Sunday, September 20, Louisiana hunters can clean out their freezers and give to a good cause.

Hunters for the Hungry will host their annual "Clean Out Your Freezer" day across state.

Refinery Mission and Giles Automotive will host this year's event in the Acadiana area.

Last year over 8,000 pounds of food were collected in Acadiana and over 30,000 pounds across the entire state.

"There's so many fishermen and hunters in Acadiana," Bob Giles, chairman of Giles Automotive, said. "I know, if everyone pitched in and cleaned out their freezer, we could collect 20 or 30,000 pounds of fish and game. For every pound of fish and game we can feed four people. If we could collect 20,000 pounds that would be over 80,000 meals that we could provide for people in Acadiana."

Below are a list of places you can donate in Acadiana and Louisiana:
