Missouri's 'Share the Harvest' Program

Hunters can help feed hungry neighbors this fall and winter by donating some or all of their deer to the Share the Harvest Program.

In 2012: 6,244 hunters in Missouri donated 317,882 pounds of venison to the program through processors across the state. Approved processors in Adair County are: Nunanâ??s Meat Market Place located on Hwy 63 at Millard. Hunters are asked to donate $10 toward the processing costs and the Christian Community Food Depot also contributes $10. Other funds are supplemented through Missouri Conservation Federation.

All the venison stays in the community where it is donated.

A list of businesses that process donated deer for free or at a reduced cost is available at Missouri Dept. of Conservationâ??s website. You can CLICK HERE to learn more.

Marsha Jones with the Missouri Department of Conservation stopped by the set of Good Morning Heartland to tell us more about the program. WATCH VIDEO above to learn more.
