Donate extra venison to state nonprofit

HANCOCK COUNTY — Fortunate hunters this deer season may donate their extra deer or venison at no processing charge.

Hoosiers Helping the Hungry hosts its yearly “Meat the Need” program, which waives processing fees at participating meat and livestock processing plants around the state. The donated meat will go to local hunger relief agencies.

The closest participating processing plant is Knightstown Locker, 8037 S. County Road 575W, Knightstown, which can be reached at 765-345-2410.

Founded in 2011, Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry encourages the donation of large game and livestock to its “Meat the Need” program, raises financial support to pay processing fees on these donations and gives this nutritious meat to hunger relief agencies in Indiana.
