In 1994, a group of local hunters gathered to discuss sharing the game and fish they harvested each year with the needy in the Greater Baton Rouge area. The hunters contacted the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and the donations that first year were given to their dining hall. Thereafter, the response from hunters was so great that the dining room’s storage was soon pushed to the limits, and help was enlisted from the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
Since then, Hunters For The Hungry has increased awareness of their program throughout the state. By conducting multiple programs such as the Clean Out Your Freezer Day and Freshly Harvested Game Program our organization is providing thousands of meals for Louisiana families.
Hunters For The Hungry’s mission is to encourage hunters and fishermen to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors by sharing their bounty of wild game and fish in order to combat hunger.
