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.”
 
Available in awards up to $1,500 at https://hfth.nra.org/hfh-subsidy/, the fund will cover the cost of processing, shipping, and distributing donated meat. 
 
HFH is a loose affiliation of state and independent programs that has provided millions of pounds of venison to homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and food banks across the United States. Working closely with the NRA, these programs connect interested individuals  with programs in their area while fostering public awareness through education, fundraising, and publicity. 
 
“I want to thank the generous donors who made it possible for HLF to support this incredibly worthy cause," said HLF Director Peter Churchbourne. “America has a long tradition of embracing the vast resources hunting provides as means for feeding family and friends. We are honored to play a role in that noble process."
 
Approximately 40 unique HFH programs operate throughout the United States on shoestring budgets. Each are individually responsible for transporting donated game meat from the field to the butcher and ultimately to the facilities that provide meals. The NRA encourages all members and supporters to donate to those programs either financially or by donating harvested game meat.
