During the hunting season, The Idaho Foodbank gets a number of inquiries about taking wild game meat as food donations. We do not accept wild game at our facilities; we direct those donations to partner agencies that accept wild game.
Wild Game Donations
In many areas across the state of Idaho wild game donations can made directly to food pantries.
- We recommend visiting Idaho Hunters Feeding the Hungry, a website dedicated to wild game donations.
Please be aware that wild game can only be accepted after being processed by a state or federally inspected processing plant. Processors must have a current inspection (within one year) conducted by the local Health District, Idaho Department of Agriculture, FDA, or USDA.
