Sportsman's Pantry donates venison to Caring Place
To the Editor:
The Caring Place, Morgan County’s local food bank issues a big thank you to the Sportsman’s Pantry for the donation of 800 pounds of ground venison during the recently completed deer season. This lean ground meat was distributed to those in need in Morgan County.
Sportsman’s Pantry is a 2-year-old program created to provide a means for
hunters to donate a field-dressed deer they do not need to a local processor who for a minimal fee packages the venison and contacts a local charity to pick up and distribute.
Local hunters, local processor, and valuable food for local residents in need. A simple, but efficient, way to help our neighbors.
One of the sponsors of the Sportsman’s Pantry is Georgia Outdoor News located on Seven Islands Road in Madison.
