For three decades, Pennsylvania sportsmen have been donating venison to local food banks and pantries.
This year, Hunters Sharing the Harvest is observing its 30th anniversary, and officials are looking for more processors and sponsors.
Randy Ferguson became the executive director earlier this year. The program started in 1991 by John Plowman, former executive director, and Ken Barndt as a way for hunters to provide healthy venison to food banks and pantries across the state. Over the three decades, the group has provided nearly 2 million pounds of venison to people across the commonwealth.
