'Venison Project' helps fight hunger across Michigan

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) says the “Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger” program is going strong.

Through this program, which is also called the “Venison Project,” hunters donate venison to those in need.

Since 1991, hunters have donated approximately 750,000 pounds of venison to more than 3 million Michigan families.

"It’s a great way to link hunters with people who are in need, especially around holiday time when people are maybe even more in need because they're stretched financially and such, because of Christmas needs and all types of things,” said Michigan DNR Deputy Public Information Officer, John Pepin.
