The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has put out a message for those who hunt!
"Hunters –
Help feed the hungry by donating harvested deer this season. After harvesting a deer, drop off your field dressed deer to a participating processor, who will distribute venison burger to Indiana food banks. The processing fees are funded through the Sportsmen’s Benevolence Fund. In 2020, more than 20,000 pounds of venison were donated.
Find a participating processor near you at sbf.IN.gov. "
