Transforming a renewable natural resource into nutritious food for those less fortunate and in need.
Please consider donating a deer this year to the Venison Donation Coalition to ensure that healthy deer meat is donated directly to 13 Counties and 19 processors in Western & Central NY to support our neighbors dealing with food insecurity.
