South Carolina Hunters and Land Owners for the Hungry are hoping to lessen food insecurity in households in South Carolina.
Through Operation Roundup, a South Carolina hunter can donate some or all of their legally harvested deer or hog meat to South Carolina Hunters and Landowners for the Hungry at a participating processor.
Volunteers will make sure the meat gets delivered to an agency that will use it to feed the hungry in South Carolina communities. However, S.C. Hunters and Land Owners for the Hungry, fully operated by volunteers and a 501c3 organization, needs more volunteers to extend their reach statewide and coordinate with more processers to provide meat to nonprofits.
To give an example of what is possible, Tennessee and Virginia Hunters for the Hungry bring over 300,000 pounds of wild meat to each of their respective states yearly.
S.C. Hunters and Landowners for the Hungry currently distributes meat to 40 nonprofit organizations that help feed over 15,000 people annually.
If you would like to help, click here and make a donation which will help offset processing and transportation costs. Every cent goes exclusively to the accumulation and delivery of meat to the hungry in your area.
S.C. Hunters for the Hungry will also be at the Palmetto Sportsmen’s Classic on March 22-24 at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds.
Since forming in 2004, S.C. Hunters and Land Owners for the Hungry has delivered 500,000 pounds of wild meat to communities in South Carolina.
