As of 2016 nearly, 1 in 7 SC residents were severely affected by hunger, with some areas reaching 1 in 4 without an adequate supply of food. As an organization, we view adequate food and nutrition as a basic human necessity and are devoted to making a change in South Carolina. We work to connect local processors, food banks, and social agencies to supply meat and other goods to those in need.
South Carolina is abundant with natural resources that can help our organization reach its goal. The venison given by the hunters and processors who choose to work with SC Hunters for the Hungry provides a substantial source of protein to families in need within our state.
Our organization is always looking for new hunters to help support our cause.
The service provided through SC Hunters for the Hungry would not be possible without the help of local processors, churches, and food banks.
Processors prepare and package donated venison which will be delivered to those in need by our local church and social agency partners.
If you are aware of a desperate need for food in your community, please reach out now!
