Hunters Feeding Illinois

Hunters Feeding Illinois Logo

Hunters are encouraged to donate their entire deer harvest to food banks and charities. Participating meat processors will grind the venison into two-pound packages of burger.

  • Hunters MUST properly field dress the deer before delivering to the meat processor. Any questionable deer will not be accepted by the processor.

  • Road kill deer may not be donated based on the inability to determine time of death of the animal.

  • Your tax-deductible donation to assist with the cost of the processing can be made by noting on your check, "Hunters Feeding Illinois" in the memo section, payable to the Illinois Conservation Foundation. Our address is: One Natural Resources Way, Springfield, IL 62702-1271
