Hunting

  • Every year hunters and fisherman in our country donate millions and millions of pounds of wild game meat.  Local sportsmen can connect their skills with the need of feeding the homeless and hungry.

  • Injured Wild Animals.  For those who find injured wild game animals, please contact the Inland Northwest Wildlife Council at (509) 487-8552. 

  • Road kill.  Washington State Law says that anyone can pick up roadkill for their own consumption, but they must take the entire animal, not just parts of it.  (Washington Dept. of Fish & Wildlife)


What You Can Do
  • Sportsmen can donate a portion or all of their high-protein, low-fat harvest to the needy.  Some hunters pay for the meat processing fee, others do not.  Contact Inland NW Wildlife Council, or Crown Foods Locker, listed as resources on this page. 

  • Injured Wild Animals.  For those who find injured wild game animals, please contact the Inland Northwest Wildlife Council at (509) 487-8552.
