Kentucky Hunters for the Hungry Program Aims to Alleviate Hunger

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Hunters in Jefferson County are trying to make this special time of year a little brighter for less fortunate Kentuckians.

The Kentucky Hunters for the Hungry (KHFH) is a statewide hunger relief program dedicated to providing a healthy source of protein to needy Kentuckians.

KHFH’s mission is to alleviate hunger and malnutrition in Kentucky by processing and distributing venison to those in need, to provide an outlet for hunters to help their communities, and to promote environmental stewardship through wildlife management.

KHFH administers the “Kentucky Whitetail Access” program. The program matches hunters with landowners, mostly often farmers, who are in need of deer population control on their property. KHFH receives the deer taken under the program.

Kentucky Hunters for the Hungry was founded in 2000. In recent years, the average annual donated harvest has risen to 60,000 to 70,000 pounds of processed venison, an amount that translates to 560,000 meals.
