Posted by Randy on 2013/11/15 14:27:18 (207 reads) News by the same author

Grundy County Conservation Agent, Jeff Berti, says the Community food pantry of Grundy County is asking deer hunters to consider participating in the Share the Harvest program to help those in need of food assistance.

Berti says the number of persons requesting assistance is at an all-time high, and meat protein is in short supply.

The cost of processing deer is provided by the Conservation Federation of Missouri and corporate sponsors. This means there's no cost to hunters when the deer is dropped off at an approved processor. Ground venison is then provided to the food pantry for donation to needy families.

Berti says the program is based on the word share. With partners paying for processing, and hunters donating deer, Berti said Grundy County has a strong program now in its
17th year of operation.

The Grundy County Conservation Agent says this act of sharing is the true spirit of the program, with hunters willing to give what they were fortunate to harvest.

Hunters interested in participating in the Share the Harvest program have 2 processing options this year. Legally harvested deer can be taken to J and M Processing at 618 Southwest 65th Street east of Jamesport or to Flowers Processing at 39200 East 320th Lane east of Gilman City.

Additional information about the Share the Harvest program is available by contacting Dennis Browning, or the Community Food Pantry of Grundy County---both at Trenton.
