Hunt For Hunger/Share The Harvest — Another Successful Year

The Hunt for Hunger program that was started by David Neier three years ago, closed the hunting season this year with total donations of over 7000 pounds! Share the Harvest, local area pantries, and the Salvation Army were thrilled to receive the much needed meat. 

David wants to thank Josephville Meat Processing and Wright City Meat Company for all their hard work during the season.  David says, “They did an amazing job keeping up with all the deer.” He also wants to send a big thank you to all the hunters who donated not just their deer, but the time in the fields to harvest them. David says he loves hunting, but to being able to feed people makes this sport even better.  He’s hoping that more hunters will take advantage of this program next year and the total donations will keep growing. This program could not succeed without the combined efforts of the hunters, processors, Missouri Conservation Department, Share the Harvest, and Operation Food Search. David wants to remind people that even though the hunting season is over, the pantries still need your help.  Please be generous in helping our neighbors in need.
