Hunters’ Leadership Forum Helps Hunters for the Hungry

Hunters for the Hungry is a great organization that allows hunters to donate their taken game to those who are less fortunate. They operate all over America and provide millions of meals a year to families in need. The organization has support from local hunters as well as from big names. The NRA’s Hunters’ Leadership Forum has just announced an increase in their support to Hunters for the Hungry.
The NRA Hunters’ Leadership Forum (HLF) is pleased to announce a new level of support for Hunters for the Hungry (HFH), including the creation of a $50,000 fund available to affiliates throughout the country. An NRA-supported initiative, Hunters for the Hungry donates millions of meals to charities and programs focused on feeding the less fortunate every year.
“There are many NRA-supported programs that don’t get the spotlight they deserve – Hunters for the Hungry is one of them,” says Joe DeBergalis, executive director of NRA General Operations. “Through the program, more than 2.1 million pounds of meat are donated every year. That translates into 8.1 million meals for friends and neighbors in our communities. That is meaningful food on the table, provided by NRA members and supporters.”
NRA Hunters’ Leadership Forum Supports Hunters for the Hungry
The NRA Hunters’ Leadership Forum has created a $50,000 fund to help with expenses. Since Hunters for the Hungry is such a small organization, often run with little to no budget, the cost associated with processing and shipping meat is a huge hurdle. This $50,000 will be aimed toward exactly those costs. Hunters who donate animals are given the option to pay these expenses, but with this fund, those who can only afford to donate the animal can still contribute at no cost to Hunters for the Hungry.
