Let's share the bounty of Wyoming with those who need it most.

Hunt. Donate. Nourish.

“There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot.”

What do you get when you pair a great love of hunting with a passion for helping those in need? Food from the Field, an innovative program to help our most vulnerable neighbors in Wyoming! Beginning this year, Wyoming Hunger Initiative has teamed up with the Wyoming Game & Fish Department, Wyoming Department of Agriculture, Food Bank of Wyoming, and participating processors to streamline game meat donation to food pantries statewide. We invite hunters to make a financial contribution to cover the cost of processing if they're able; Wyoming Hunger Initiative will cover the remaining cost. Wyoming's majestic landscapes offer hunters some of the best opportunities in the world; Food from the Field enables them to share that bounty by donating all or part of their meat to participating local processors who in turn will prepare it for local organizations to distribute to our neighbors in need. All deer, elk, and moose will undergo appropriate CWD testing to ensure safety prior to entering the food bank system. I hope you'll consider joining me in becoming part of a Wyoming solution to a Wyoming challenge.

With gratitude,

Wyoming Hunger Initiative invites hunters to make a financial contribution to cover the cost of processing their game if possible; however, it isn't a requirement to participate. Not a hunter but still believe in the mission of Food from the Field? Your financial donations make a tremendous impact to the success of the program! Wyoming Hunger Initiative funds will cover the remaining costs so processors are compensated for their work and time.


It's a requirement to remove lymph nodes from deer, elk, or moose for CWD sampling for all game donated to Food from the Field. There are many ways to remove the lymph nodes. This is one of the methods commonly used at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department; whether you're learning for the first time or brushing up on your skills, this video will help!
