The GiveIN Game Program connects hunters who have opportunities to harvest additional deer with those who could use venison to feed their families. Participants contact each other through the program and arrange for the transfer of meat on their own.
The free program starts Sept. 1 each year. Opportunities exist for donation of venison during the hunting season, as well as the exchange of frozen packages of venison or deer taken on special permits outside of the hunting season. Participants should register each year starting on Sept. 1.
Participants will have their first name, county, and preferred contact information (phone or e-mail) available online to search for potential matches. Other personal information will remain confidential.
Venison is a healthy alternative to beef. It has less fat and calories, and more protein than the similar size serving of beef (nutritiondata.com).
