Alloway Urges Hunters to Donate Venison for Local Food Banks

HARRISBURG – Senator Richard Alloway II (R-33) today urged hunters to participate in a venison donation program to help Pennsylvanians in need.

Alloway took part in a press conference today at Diller’s Butcher Shop in Enola to encourage Pennsylvanians to donate to the Hunters Sharing the Harvest program. The program allows hunters to take their deer to any participating deer processor to donate a portion of the venison to local food banks.

“The demands on local pantries and food banks are growing due to the recession, so there has never been a more important time for sportsmen to consider participating in this venison donation program,” Alloway said. “Even small donations can make a big difference for local families suffering from hunger.”

Participating processors in the 33rd Senatorial District include:
Country Corner Market Deer Processing, 6032 Buttermilk Road in Waynesboro,
Stitely’s Meat Processing, 3647 Haulman Road in Chambersburg,
Butcher Block Meat and Seafood, 3055 Biglerville Road in Biglerville, and
Gary’s Meat Locker, 236 Poplar Street in Hanover.

When hunters drop the deer off to be processed, they must tell the processor how many pounds of venison they would like to donate. The processors handle the venison under sanitary conditions and provide cold storage until the meat is moved to a local food bank.

Additional information about Hunters Sharing the Harvest is available online at www.sharedeer.org.
