HFTHThe Tennessee Wildlife Federation’s Hunters for the Hungry Program
Provides Over 400,000 Meals for Hunger Relief Agencies across the State
Thanks to Record Breaking Year

TWF’s Hunters for the Hungry Program collected and distributed over 100,000 pounds of venison to hunger relief agencies during the 2009/2010 deer season.  As a result, more than 400,000 meals will be provided to individuals and families in need.
The meat collected represents a 30 percent increase over last hunting season, and an overall record of venison collected in a single season since the program began in 1995. The record breaking numbers occurred despite an overall decline in the annual deer harvest from the previous year.  

"I am extremely proud to be a small part of such a wonderful program as Hunters for the Hungry,” said former UT Head Football Coach and Hunters for the Hungry spokesman Phillip Fulmer. “The significant increase of 30 percent from one year to the next is a great testament to the hearts of our state’s hunters, and to the efforts of The Tennessee Wildlife Federation and its dedicated men and women," he added.
