Helena Food Share partners with hunters to end hunger in our community!  Wild game meat is important to the families who visit the pantry, providing a critical source of lean, healthy protein.  You can donate online to help cover processing costs for animals, or donate the meat you harvest.  All game donations must be processed by a licensed, commercial processor.
