SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Conservation officials are reminding hunters that they can donate deer meat to families in need through a Missouri program.

KYTV (https://bit.ly/1M1c0pP ) reports that the program, called Share the Harvest, is administered by the Missouri Department of Conservation and the Conservation Federation of Missouri.

The program makes it possible for hunters take deer to approved meat processors. Hunters can donate a few pounds of meat or the entire deer. The processor will package the meat, and store it until it’s picked and taken to a charitable agency.

The cost of meat processing is the hunter’s responsibility, but money is available to help offset costs when a whole deer is donated.

In 2014, nearly 4,000 hunters donated more than 212,000 pounds of venison through the program.
