The NRA Hunters' Leadership Forum (HLF) is pleased to announce the 2023 subsidy program for the Hunters for the Hungry (HFH) programs in the United States, by increasing the available funding to $100,000.  In 2022 alone, the Hunters for the Hungry organizations provided nearly 1.6 million lbs. of game meat to individuals and food banks in the United States.

“Due to the overwhelming support of the NRA Hunters’ Leadership Forum, the 2023 subsidy program will be able to award almost double the funds distributed to processors last year,” said Joseph P. DeBergalis, Jr., executive director of NRA General Operations. “Hunters for the Hungry is a meaningful program providing over eight million meals annually to neighbors and families in need across the country. NRA is proud to support HFH programs and local processors to help hunters donate their harvested game meat.”

Available in awards up to $2,000, the fund will cover the cost of processing, shipping, and distributing donated meat.

“I want to thank the generous donors who made it possible for the Hunters’ Leadership Forum to support this incredibly worthy cause," said HLF Director Peter Churchbourne. “America has a long tradition of embracing the vast resources hunting provides as means for feeding family and friends. We are honored to play a role in that noble process. The NRA has long been one of the biggest advocates, supporters and funders of the various independent groups that facilitate this important endeavor, with over $650,000 being allocated to this initiative.” 

The Hunters for the Hungry initiative is a loose affiliation of state and independent programs that have provided 40 million pounds of wild game to individual families, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and food banks across the United States. Working with the NRA, these programs connect interested individuals with programs in their area while fostering public awareness through education, fundraising, and publicity. 

Approximately 40 unique HFH programs operate throughout the United States on shoestring budgets. The NRA encourages all members and supporters to donate to those programs either financially or by donating legally harvested game meat.
