Sportsmen Against Hunger

Sportsmen Against Hunger

Community Action Partnership of North Dakota Sportsmen Against Hunger organizes the donation of legally-obtained wild game to food pantries across North Dakota.  Hunters can donate venison to processing sites across the states. Drop off your game at a participating processor and we'll take care of the rest!

Food pantries continue to be in need of healthy sources of protein, particularly fresh/frozen meat. Perishable items are often the least donated, yet they are the most needed to prepare healthy, balanced meals. CAPND is proud to bring together generous hunters, willing to donate game meat with families who can benefit from no-cost, nutritious protein sources.

Since 2004, Sportsmen Against Hunger program has grown and changed with the needs of the state. Since the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have seen an even greater need for Food Security across North Dakota.  SAH hopes to address this need by increasing donations of legally-obtained game meat to food pantries statewide.
