With the help of Kansas deer hunters, meat processors, and private donors, Kansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry (KSHFH) annually provides thousands of meals to those in need. The Kansas deer firearm season, which runs from December 2 through the 13 this year, is the busiest time for the organization. Hunters donate hundreds of white-tailed and mule deer and occasionally an elk or even a bison. The organization supplies meat to nearly 100 food banks across the state by working in cooperating Kansas meat processors.
The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) makes it easy to help. When outdoorsmen and women buy hunting licenses, permits, or stamps, they can donate $2 to support this Hunters Feeding the Hungry, which the agency collects for KSHFH.
