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.”
HUNGER IS A PROBLEM THAT CAN BE SOLVED, TOGETHER.
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! Now in its second year, Wyoming Hunger Initiative, the Wyoming Game & Fish Department, Wyoming Department of Agriculture, and participating processors work together 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.

DONATE TO FOOD FROM THE FIELD
Wyoming Hunger Initiative invites hunters to make a $45 financial contribution on site at a participating processor to cover a portion of the cost of processing. Thanks to the generosity of multiple Wyoming Game & Fish Commissioners who have donated "commissioner tags" for annual raffles, Wyoming Hunger Initiative is able to cover the remaining cost of processing so processors are compensated for their work and time. The commitment by so many to take care of our neighbors in need along with a willingness to find sustainable solutions to hunger ensures Food from the Field will be a long-term, viable solution to reducing food insecurity in Wyoming. Interested in knowing how much the average processing price is per species?
Moose $300 | Elk $285 | Deer $150 | Antelope $110
