If you hunt deer, you’re being asked to donate your extra venison. Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry says they’ll pay for the processing, and the deer, or part of deer that you donate, can feed as many as 200 people.
Feeding the Hungry Executive Director Deb Treesh says last year over 50.000 pounds were donated. But, because the deer harvest was not as rich this season as it usually is, fewer people have donated deer. She says she understands that hunters feed their families first, but says ususally donors give their 2nd deer away.
