How Venison Donations Improve Food Security with Jeremy Brown and Ronnie Ritter

May 29, 2024 By: NDA Staff

In our previous episode, our guest Kip Adams talked about the need for hunters to shoot more deer in many areas of the country, and one of the obstacles hunters face is not needing additional venison for themselves.

We invited Jeremy Brown from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and Ronnie Ritter from Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry to talk about their unique venison snack stick program and how the state’s Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) is helping.

In some areas of the country, one in four households struggle with food insecurity, which is a startling statistic. All of us can work together to harvest more deer and get donated venison into the hands of the families that need it most. This unique program in Arkansas is setting a fine example for others to follow.
