Butcher shops in Delaware will accept donated deer meat for the state’s Sportsmen Against Hunger Program during the 2015-16 deer hunting season.

All donated venison will be distributed to charitable groups participating in the program.

Last year, 18,016 pounds of venison from 604 deer was divided among 36 food pantries and shelters statewide, providing more than 72,000 meals for Delawareans in need. The program has provided more than 1.7 million meals since 1992.
