Pantry hunting for deer
NORTH LIBERTY– It’s that time of year, and hunting season is well underway. According to a 2011 family survey, fresh or frozen meats are the most sought after items at the North Liberty Community Pantry. The pantry is now seeking hunters willing to donate an extra deer to the pantry. The goal is to receive 10-15 deer processed for the holiday season. Bud’s Custom Meats in Riverside has agreed to process deer for $50 on behalf of the pantry. The pantry is also accepting donations of cows and hogs for the purpose of providing fresh meat to its clients. The pantry will pay for processing, and the donation is tax deductible.
Monetary donations toward animal processing are being accepted at the pantry.
There are families in the North Liberty community that won’t be able to afford to feed their family this holiday season, so any donation is greatly appreciated. This is a chance for local families to help the North Liberty community and surrounding rural areas put a special dinner on the table in time for the holidays.
The North Liberty Community Pantry also serves Tiffin, Oxford, Solon and other surrounding communities. Families are thrilled to receive fresh meat products, as these items are increasing in cost and are unavailable to many of the families who use the pantry.
The North Liberty Community Pantry would like to thank Iowa Network Services and South Slope Communications for a $2,000 grant toward animal processing for the pantry, and thanks all who spend their valuable time and money helping the pantry to help those who need it most.
