The Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger (MSAH) program is a perfect way for hunters to share a part of their harvest this fall, or donate a whole deer. MSAH is a 501(c )(3) non-profit organization.
Since 1991, MSAH has been working to help connect donors, wild game processors and charities that feed needy individuals. An all-volunteer organization with no paid staff members, MSAH is operated entirely by sportsmen and women concerned about making a positive difference in their communities. Together, they have assembled a network of processors and charities to help channel wild game donations into the hands of those in need. The program is sponsored by Safari Club International, Michigan United Conservation Clubs, Ted Nugent World Bowhunters, Michigan Bow Hunters Association, the United Methodist Men's Club, Food Bank Council of Michigan, and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
Over the last few years, the Sportsmen Against Hunger program has helped provide over 100,000 meals annually.
Here's how the program works:
You can help offset the cost of processing, and packaging venison by making a monetary donation when you purchase your hunting or fishing license. Just tell the retail vendor that you want to make a donation to the Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger.
If you already purchased your license or are a non-hunter, you can still support this important program. Just click on the Help Feed the Hungry button below and make a donation that will also help with the cost of processing.
To donate venison, visit a participating processor. You can either leave the whole deer or donate a portion of the deer.
An updated list of participating processors can be obtained by calling the Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger hotline at 586-552-6517 or visit www.sportsmenagainsthunger.org.
Non-hunters can also join in and help provide food for needy families. Just click on the Help Feed the Hungry button below and make a donation that will help with the cost of processing, packaging and transportation of donated venison.
