Ohio hunters donated 1,170 white-tailed deer that ended up at food banks this year, creating enough venison for 234,000 meals. Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Vicki Ervin says food banks, facing federal budget cuts, especially like venison.

“Any type of red meat is needed now more than ever. Any time they can get protein into their doors, they appreciate it.”

Ervin adds that controlling the deer population is a bonus, and this year’s donations are down slightly due to a smaller deer population. She says hunters wishing to donate should contact Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry, which maintains a list of certified meat processors in Ohio. Deer season began in late September and runs through Superbowl Sunday, February 2.
