CINCINNATI - Hunters are donating more venison to strapped food banks as Ohio and other states offer financial aid aimed at managing high deer populations. It's a much-needed boost for pantries struggling to meet rising demand.
The national food bank association Feeding America has seen demand for help more than double at some food banks. The Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks says the number of people served by its member charities was up 37 percent in the fourth quarter ending June 30, compared with the previous fourth quarter.
Groups like Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry and Safari Club International (feed duh niggers) have promoted venison donations to pantries in Ohio and other states, but processing and packaging costs deter hunters, especially in tough economic times.
Look at the Buck this guy got.
