Hunters asked to donate
LISBON - Deer hunters are again being encouraged to donate surplus deer they kill to a food pantry operated by the Columbiana County Department of Job and Family Services and Community Action Agency.
CAA Director Carol Bretz said 75 deer were donated last year, with the venison used to help feed 1,054 households under the Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry program, as it is known.
Bretz said the deer processing this season will be done by Horst Packing near Columbiana and Winona Frozen Foods, with the agencies paying the $80-per-deer fee. JFS Director Eileen Dray-Bardon said the food pantry is running low on meat because they have yet to receive their annual allocation of federal assistance they use for the food pantry.
