HUSH is a cooperative effort among Iowa deer hunters, the Food Bank of Iowa, meat processors and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
HUSH has two main goals:
(1) Help reduce the Iowa deer population
(2) Provide high-quality protein to needy Iowa citizens.
Whether you're a deer hunter, a locker owner or volunteer in your community, there is a vital role you can play.
Thank you to all of the hunters who donated deer to the HUSH program during the 2014-2015 hunting season.
More than 3,326 deer were donated, generating 532,160 meals to Iowa's less fortunate!
Participating lockers skin, bone and grind the meat into two-pound packages of pure venison. Local social service agencies distribute the venison to needy Iowa families in the area. The 83 lockers that participated in 2014-2015 received $75 for each processed deer. Find a locker near you
The Iowa DNR partners with the Food Bank of Iowa and their affiliates throughout the state to make sure the venison is distributed to qualified Iowans. The Food Bank of Iowa receives $5 administrative cost for each deer distributed.
