BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Hunters for the Hungry is asking Louisiana residents to clear their freezers and donate their frozen goods to one of the drop-off locations in the state as part of its annual Clean Out Your Freezer Day.

“We’re excited to host Clean Out Your Freezer Day a few weeks earlier this year,” said Julie Gruenwald, executive director of Hunters For The Hungry. “We want to make sure we hit a time that’s convenient for all sportsmen as they’re preparing for the upcoming hunting season and possibly overloaded from the fishing season.”

According to Hunters For the Hungry, they will be taking any properly packaged, labeled, and dated game, fish, or other protein as well as other frozen foods.

Last year’s event was a huge success as Hunters For The Hungry were able to collect over 16,000 pounds of frozen goods and they will be looking to continue that for this year’s event.

There are multiple drop-off locations throughout the state. Those looking to donate can go to one of the drop-off locations in and around the Baton Rouge area. Donations can be dropped off between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 27.
