HUSH program, hunters partner to ‘kill’ hunger in Iowa
Ten years ago, Help Us Stop Hunger was launched in Iowa. The program is a collaborative effort between the Food Bank of Iowa and Iowa Department of Natural Resources that has two purposes: stamping out hunger and helping thin out the Iowa deer population.
The program’s basis is simple: excess deer meat harvested by Iowa hunters is donated and then allocated to the hungry.
To participate in the program, a hunter is asked to buy an extra antlerless-only deer permit and from there, they do what they do best — hunt. Once they bag a deer, hunters can take it to the closest locker to have it processed.
