NRA HFTH Subsidy Program Lead

The NRA Hunters' Leadership Forum (HLF) is pleased to announce the return of support for the Hunters for the Hungry (HFH) subsidy program. A total of $60,000 has been committed to fund 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. 

“Last year, HFH affiliates across America applied for and received funding totaling $50,000,” said Joseph P. DeBergalis, Jr., Executive Director of NRA General Operations. “Due to the generosity of the NRA Hunters’ Leadership Forum, these subsidies went towards processing and distributing millions of pounds of harvested meat to feed those in need in our communities. We are grateful to HLF for again offering funding support for this meaningful program.”

Available in awards up to $1,500 at hfth.nra.org/hfh-subsidy, the funds will cover the cost of processing, shipping and distributing donated meat. 

Hunters for the Hungry is comprised of state and independent programs that have 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.

“The research HLF completed in 2019 proved that one of the most supported aspects of hunting, by non-hunters, was that the meat from the harvested animal is used for consumption by humans,” said HLF Director Peter Churchbourne. “Hunters are providing healthy organic protein to their families’ tables, and through this program, we are helping Americans in need. We are honored to be a part of this hunger solution.”

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.
