Hunters for the Hungry
Cornerstone Community Action Agency partners with Hall's Processing in Coleman, TX to operate the Hunters for the Hungry Program.
In 2013-2014 Deer Season, 7,875 lbs of venison were processed and distributed to local food pantries.
In the past, most venison donations would cost the donor the fee of processing the meat, but now Central Texas Opportunities, Inc and Hall’s Processing will pay processing fee for deer donated during bow, muzzleloader and firearms seasons.
Food banks tell us that meat is their least available food item due to the high cost ($2-$5 per pound for beef) and that they gratefully accept venison donations. Venison is a nutritious, low fat, high protein meat that is distributed and/or cooked by community organizations such as church pantries, Salvation Army, community food banks, church feeding ministries, emergency assistance programs and senior citizen centers.
You can donate your deer to the program and have that venison end up on the tables of less fortunate people in Brown, Callahan, Coleman, Comanche, Eastland, Runnels, McCulloch Counties and surrounding areas. All it takes is for you to field dress and take the legally tagged deer to Hall’s Processing in Coleman, Texas for meat processing.
