This hunting season, the East Texas Food bank is encouraging others to give back to those less fortunate by donating deer and does to their Hunters for the Hungry program.

Hunters for the Hungry is a statewide hunger relief program put on by Feeding Texas. The program provides healthy, lean protein to needy Texans.

You can donate your legally tagged, field-dressed deer to Carnes Packaging and Country Store in Troup and Massingill Meat Market in Lufkin to be processed and packaged for the East Texas Food Bank.

If you have your own meat processing company and want to participate you can, just contact the East Texas Food Bank to join in the fight to end hunger.
