News from KY Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles Office
FRANKFORT (13 Nov 2017) -- Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles has proclaimed November 13-17, 2017 as "Hunters for the Hungry Week" in honor of Kentucky Hunters for the Hungry (KHFH), a charitable volunteer-run organization that encourages hunters to harvest and donate deer each season.
"Kentuckians have an opportunity this hunting season to help feed a hungry neighbor in need by donating part of their deer harvest to Kentucky Hunters for the Hungry," said Commissioner Ryan Quarles. "In Kentucky, hunting is a right enshrined in our state Constitution. I hope Kentucky hunters across the state will take part in the great traditions of controlling our deer herd and feeding hungry neighbors this year."
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 donated 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, established in conjunction with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. Kentucky Whitetail Access matches hunters with landowners, most often farmers, who are in need of deer population control on their property. KHFH receives the deer taken under the program, and Kentucky Farm Bureau covers the processing of venison.
Kentucky Hunters for the Hungry was founded in 2000. In recent years, the average annual donated harvest has risen to 60,000-70,000 pounds of processed venison, an amount that translates into 560,000 meals.
