Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The MSAH has assembled a network of processors and charities across Michigan to help channel wild game donations into the hands of those in need. By utilizing fund donations received, the MSAH reimburses our participating processors for the work they do in processing donated deer into ground venison. This ground venison is then distributed to local community Food Banks, Shelters and Pantries, to feed the hungry in dire need.

Coordinate hunters who want to donate wild game harvests, as well as state agencies & locations within the state of Michigan working on deer management solutions, with participating processors who are will to work with the MSAH in the processing of venison into ground venison to distribute to the hungry in Michigan's communities.

Since 1991 the MSAH has been growing in participation and funding from voluntary financial donations, and working under contract with the state of Michigan as a recognized program to help the hungry of our state of Michigan's communities with ground venison supplied from our licensed and certified participating processors.

From 1991 to September 30, 2022, the MSAH estimates that 1,038,207 pounds of processed venison burger has been distributed to Michigan community nonprofit Food Banks, Shelters and Pantries and when used in a recipe such as a Goulash, Spaghetti, Chili , etc., has helped create high protein meals for the food assistance dependent hungry in our Michigan communities by creating up to 4,152,828 hot and noursihing meals.
