More than 500 agricultural partners and industry leaders will gather on June 24, 2022 at Carroll County Shooting Sports Park for the West Tennessee Shooting Hunger event. Hosted by Tennessee Farm Bureau, Farm Credit Mid-America/Rural 1st, and Tennessee Farmers Cooperative, Shooting Hunger is a clay-pot sporting event that raises money to reduce food insecurity throughout Tennessee.
Shooting Hunger has grown to three events across the state each year and has since raised enough funds to provide more than two million meals to hungry Tennesseans.
West Tennessee Shooting Hunger includes shooters of all skill levels who spend the day shooting clays, supporting the cause, and enjoying networking with others in and around the farming industry. The format consists of five-person teams shooting at multiple stations throughout the day, with flights of shooters in the morning and afternoon. Prizes are awarded to the top three teams and the best individual shooter from both flights, and a $500 purse is awarded to the top young shooter from each flight courtesy of the Tennessee Farmers Cooperative.
After the year’s three events are complete, the donated funds will be distributed evenly across all 95 counties to fight local hunger by allocating funds to local school backpack programs and food banks. Learn more about Shooting Hunger and a full schedule for the day by visiting shootinghunger.com.
