Hunters Helping the Hungry has received a $2,500 grant from the NRA Foundation to assist with the cost of butchering donated venison that will be given to New Jersey food banks.

According to Les Giese of Clinton Township, co-founder of Hunters Helping the Hungry, “This grant allows us to continue providing thousands of pounds of high protein venison to New Jersey’s hungry families.” Since the Hunters Helping the Hungry program began, it has donated over 234,000 pounds of venison, providing approximately 936,000 servings to feed hungry people in the community.
