We will post common questions and answers that we receive regarding donations to the State College Food Bank.
Do you accept venison or wild game?
Due to regulations, food pantries are not allowed to accept venison or wild game, except through the Hunters Sharing the Harvest program. Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH) is Pennsylvania’s charitable venison donation program for hunters who share their extra venison via a statewide network of participating butchers to Food Banks across Pennsylvania. HSH participating butchers, who are paid for their services through monetary donations, coordinate the meat deliveries and work with local food banks. The food banks redistribute the venison to more than 4,000 local food assistance provider organizations such as food pantries, missions, homeless shelters, Salvation Army facilities and churches, as well as needy families.
