During 2019, the Hunters Sharing the Harvest benefited the Towanda Area Christian Outreach (T.A.C.O.) Food Pantry and their clients through this venison sharing program.

During the past deer hunting season, the pantry received 946 pounds of venison from Bruce’s Custom Meat Processing in Athens and 750 pounds of ground venison from Bryan’s Meat Cutting & Butcher Shop in Milan.

The pantry also received 50 pounds of venison hot dogs from Bryan’s. This venison was immediately distributed to the clients of the T.A.C.O. Food Pantry. Everyone was very grateful for the venison, and the pantry would like to thank both Bruce’s and Bryan’s for their cost support in making these donations possible.

This program takes donated deer and the meat processors do the processing and donate them to the local pantries packaged, frozen, and ready to be picked up. The venison is a special treat for many clients and is only available during hunting season.

T.A.C.O. Food Pantry is a 501(c) 3 organization located at 1876 Golden Mile Road, Wysox.

It is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 a.m. until noon. If anyone has a question, please call the pantry at 570-265-4422.
