A game feeder includes a feed container having a funnel shaped outlet immediately above a distributor mounted for rotation on the end of a motor shaft. When the motor runs, the plate spins and broadcasts feed around the feeder. The distributor includes an inlet having a member extending across the path of movement of feed from the container outlet toward the distributor. When the distributor turns, any trash extending down from the container outlet is cut or abraded by the spinning member. The distributor includes one or more outlets having a swinging gate providing a closure for the outlet in a stopped or resting condition of the motor and preventing movement of feed unless the motor is running. When the motor turns and the distributor spins, the gate opens by centrifugal force allowing feed to pass through the distributor outlet.
