PACOLET, S.C. (AP) - A group in the Upstate that provides wild game meat for the hungry has moved into larger quarters and hopes to serve more people.

South Carolina Hunters for the Hungry distributes deer and wild hog meat to charitable organizations and the needy.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports (https://bit.ly/1ozaEhA ) the group recently moved into the old Pacolet armory.

The group had operated out of a smaller location in Spartanburg for the past 12 years.

Chairman Bob Williams says last year 26,000 pounds of wild game meat was distributed and the group hopes to increase that to 35,000 pounds this year.



Hunters bring in meat and the group pays for processing.

Since 2004, the group has provided about 1.5 million meals to families in the Upstate.
