Michigan deer hunters and non-hunters are on track to contribute record-breaking amounts of meat in 2019, according to an article in the Iosco County News Herald.
“Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger (MSAH) Executive Director Dean Hall told The Center Square they’ve currently accounted for around 54,000 pounds of venison that will be processed into venison burgers and distributed to 82 different pantries, food banks and homeless shelters across the Mitten.”
MSAH partners with 40 different processors, Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Food Bank Council of Michigan to get the processed meat from the hunters to the hungry in 26 Michigan counties.
The Rapidian reported that projection could top 58,000 pounds plus $100,000 in monetary donations, which would provide about 232,000 meals.
Several organizations sponsor the program, including Safari Club International.
