Sportsmen Against Hunger
Sportsmen Against Hunger is a charitable program that raises money for processing of donated deer and goose meat, and coordinates distribution to food pantries in North Dakota. It is administered by the Community Action Partnership of North Dakota, a nonprofit agency that serves low-income families across the state.
The North Dakota Community Action Sportsmen Against Hunger program is accepting donations of goose meat taken during the August Management Take/Early September Canada goose season. In addition, the program will accept Canada and light (snow, blue and Ross’s) goose donations during the regular waterfowl season.
Similar to last year, hunters can bring in their goose meat to participating processors. However, hunters must remove the breast meat from the birds before processors can accept them. Hunters can clean their geese at home prior to delivery to a processor, but breast meat brought from home without a wing or head attached to the meat, must be accompanied by written information that includes the hunter’s name, address, signature, hunting license number, date taken and species and number taken. Hunters may also deliver geese directly from the field to a processor, but identification must remain attached to the bird until in possession of the processor. Since no goose carcasses or feathers are allowed inside processing plants, hunters must be able to ensure proper disposal and clean-up of carcasses. Hunters interested in donating are encouraged to call processors before dropping off geese, to have a clear understanding of how goose breasts will be accepted and the processor’s hours of operation.
