LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska meat processors have until July 20 to apply for this year’s Hunters Helping the Hungry program, which provides ground venison to needy residents.
The state program contracts with local meat processors to prepare donated venison, which processors grind and distribute in 2-pound bags through a network of regional community groups. The meat ends up in local food pantries to help feed needy families.
Application forms and program guidelines are available at https://OutdoorNebraska.com/HHH , under the “Processors and Charitable Donations” link.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will contract with eligible applicants by Aug. 7.
