Not everyone understands how important hunters are to the country. Citizens who hunt are sportsmen, conservationists, and often times, philanthropists.

Many communities have programs allowing hunters to donate meat to help low-income families. To assist with those efforts, the National Rifle Association introduced the Hunters for the Hungry program in 1993, a nationwide initiative to donate wild game to help provide meals for those in need. The NRA has and continues to work closely with local and state agencies to put interested individuals in touch with programs in their area and foster public awareness through education, fundraising and publicity.

Take a look at the following infographic and please visit NRA Hunters for the Hungry to find out how you can get involved!
