COLDWATER, Mich. -- A southern Michigan food pantry said it was able to offer 3,271 pounds of venison this fall, thanks to donations from deer hunters.
The meat was available through the Branch Area Food Pantry in Coldwater.
Bob DuCharme of the Quality Deer Management Association said the program was a joint effort of his group and Sportsmen Against Hunger, the Coldwater Downtown Business Association and the Q-1 Big Buck Pole.
The Daily Reporter said the groups hired Countryside Quality Meats in Union City to process the meat for the pantry. The meat helped feed those with economic difficulties.
