Hunters can donate venison to needy
ESCANABA — The Venison Project gives hunters who do not want the meat an opportunity to donate their deer to feed hungry people. If you wish to donate a deer, field dress it and take it to Steve Soderman’s Meat Processing on Days River Road in Brampton or to Viau’s Market in Escanaba. If the deer is skinned, you can take it to Garden Mini Mart. All three places – Steve Soderman’s, Viau’s, and Garden Mini Mart — will process the meat for free, so there is no cost to the hunter. Just tell them it is for the Memorial Church Venison Project. The meat is given to food pantries in Escanaba and Gladstone. Questions may be directed to Memorial United Methodist Church at 428-9311.
