Hunger is a troublesome daily reality for thousands of families across South Carolina. This hardship compounds itself because it affects the morale and health of those affected. We work with social agencies and churches to find the needy in a quest to feed the hungry.
Our state is rich in natural resources. The population of deer and wild boar keeps climbing. Both are rich sources of protein and meat provided by generous hunters and is making a huge difference in our objective…to put meat on the tables of hungry families across the state.
In order for meat to go from field to table it must be processed by licensed butchers. Hunters take the undressed fresh meat to dozens of processors around the state. Their role in processing and packaging the meat for distribution is key to our mission of feeding the hungry.
The primary objective of South Carolina Hunters and Landowners for the Hungry is to coordinate the distribution of venison from hunters to hungry people via an integrated network of meat processors and food banks.
We are a 100% volunteer organization and all our funding goes to the clientele we serve.

Each year, The Spartanburg County Foundation trustees set an unrestricted budget from The Community Fund and a partnership of other funds to award grants to nonprofit organizations serving Spartanburg County.
“We are very excited to be investing into these nonprofits by providing capacity-building grants,” said Troy Hanna, President and CEO of The Spartanburg County Foundation. “While the purpose of each grant varies in scope, all of the grants will be used to help further the missions of these organizations and increase their charitable impact throughout the greater Spartanburg County community.”
