Processor Tribute

Our many thanks to the 85 meat processors for making Venison Donation a success, without them we couldn’t do it! Meat processors, like farm families, like hunting families, like Food Bank families, have strong family values, strong work ethics and a true desire to help folks. Many meat processing businesses have been family run for generations.
