How to Donate your Legally Harvested Deer
After tagging your deer, and calling for your transportation number,
take your deer to one of the participating butchers listed on our website,
and in the hunter’s digest. The food bank is not allowed to distribute the
meat unless the deer is processed at a butcher that has been inspected
by the State Health Dept. All participating butchers have passed this
Fill out the form at the butcher shop (name, address, license number,
transportation number, etc).
Pay any applicable fees to the butcher.
The butcher will then process your deer, and the food bank will pick your
processed deer up at the butcher, and distribute the meat to various food
pantries, emergency shelters, churches, etc. Your deer, and your willingness
to share in the cost of the processing fees will then help feed hungry families
in New Jersey.
