For years Vermont Game Wardens have coordinated the donation of venison to Vermonters in need. Today, the department’s Venison for Vermonters program is making venison accessible to more Vermonters by coordinating the butchering and distribution of wild game meat for local food shelves and Vermonters in need.
You can help us feed our neighbors by donating today. 100% of your donation goes to covering the cost of butchering wild game meat.
For each individual donation of $15 or more, we will mail you a supporter sticker as our way of saying thank you!
An average-sized Vermont deer will provide nutritious, delicious, local meat for 120 meals. So far, more than 3,000 pounds of wild meat has been donated to the program and distributed to food shelves across Vermont.
