2.8 MILLION POUNDS OF GAME MEAT PROVIDED TO THOSE IN NEED

by | Nov 15, 2011

When you're passing the turkey and stuffing around the Thanksgiving dinner table, here's a story to tell—one that would not be possible without the thoughtfulness and generosity of hunters. A new study commissioned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and conducted by Mile Creek Communications reveals that last year 11 million meals were provided to the less fortunate through donations of venison by hunters.

Nearly 2.8 million pounds of game meat made its way to shelters, food banks and church kitchens and onto the plates of those in need. The study revealed that donations were largest in the Midwest and the South. The Midwest provided 1.3 million pounds of game meat, amounting to 46.1 percent of total donations, with the South close behind at 1.25 million pounds and 45.7 percent. The Northeast contributed 7.2 percent of total donations and the West 1 percent. Though lower than other regions, the West's contribution still accounted for 108,520 meals.—courtesy National Shooting Sports Foundation
