394 pounds of venison that was processed at Bayard processing after donations from hunters as part of Nebraska’s Hunters Helping the Hungry program was delivered to the Guadalupe Center for use in the church pantry Tuesday.
Local church partner organizer Roger Christensen from St. John’s Lutheran Church told KNEB News donations have been steady, and they still hope to get more deer to help the feed the hungry.
Christensen says they have more deer ready to be processed that would give the regional effort 2,500 pounds of deer donated. He says they are allowed to process over 5,500 pounds of venison if needed.
Most of Tuesday’s delivery will be used by Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, but some may also go to the other pantries that will also be delivered venison this winter. They include Potter’s Wheel, the Jeremiah House, and the First Baptist Church.
