South Dakota Sportsmen Against Hunger Initiative
Established in 1993, the South Dakota Sportsmen Against Hunger (SAH) program empowers hunters to contribute to the community by donating portions of their game. This initiative encourages the sharing of big game and game birds, specifically antlerless deer, doe/kid antelope, and Canada geese, to aid those in need. Participating processors provide SAH processing certificates to cover most or the entire cost of processing these donations.
Contributors to the SAH program can further support its mission by opting for tax-deductible cash donations. These contributions can be made directly through a check-off option available on both online and paper hunting license applications or by visiting the SAH website at feedtheneedsd.com. Additionally, donations are accepted via mailed checks or money orders addressed to "South Dakota Sportsmen Against Hunger" at their mailing address: P.O. Box 1172, Pierre, SD 57501.
The program not only feeds the needy but also fosters a sense of community and stewardship among hunters. To learn more about how to participate or contribute, potential donors and participants are encouraged to call 1.800.456.2758 or visit the SAH website. Your involvement, whether through donating game, funds, or spreading the word, significantly impacts combating hunger within South Dakota communities.
