BATON ROUGE, La. — A Baton Rouge based nonprofit organization called Hunters for the Hungry is asking local sportsmen and hunters to donate their freshly harvested game to be distributed to food banks and other local agencies.

According to the organization's website, many Louisiana processors take part in the program where hunters can drop off their deer to be processed at no cost to them

The food bank or other local agencies then collect the meat from the processor for distribution, and the invoice from the processor is then sent to Hunters For The Hungry. Hunters also have the option to keep the backstrap.

Hunters for the Hungry says they also encourage donations of freshly harvested game throughout the hunting season.
