DNR selling pins to help feed the hungry

Citizens can help feed the hungry through the Sportsmen's Benevolence Fund by purchasing the fund's lapel pins.

The pins are available for purchase from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division. Proceeds go to organizations such as Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry, helping pay for the processing of deer donated to the program by hunters. The venison is given to various food banks across Indiana.

In 2008, officials say more than 75,000 pounds of donated meat to FHFH was processed into 300,216 meals.
