High Plains Food Bank (HPFB) and Clint & Sons High Plains Hunters (C&S HPH) have partnered together to help feed families in the area. The groups are seeking hunters who would like to donate their harvested animals. Hunters can donate an entire animal to be processed and donated for $50. Deer season opens Nov. 5.
"The High Plains Food Bank is such a vital organization to our area. So many people depend on the food they provide as a means to survive. If we can help make sure that they stay full on protein through the winter, we've done a great service," said Josh Cook., Clint & Sons marketing director. "We want to do our part to make sure no one goes to bed hungry."
This is the 3rd year for the program. So far, C&S HPH, with the help of local hunters, have donated close to 8,000 pounds of protein to the HPFB.
"Most programs ask you to pay full price for processing in addition to hauling the finished product to the food bank. C&S HPH was formed to make it easier and more convenient for hunters to donate," said Cook.
"The hunter pays $50, the HPFB pays $50, and Clint & Sons donates the other $50. The hunter brings the game to the store, and then we take care of the rest," Cook shared.
"Protein is in high demand, especially during this time of the year," shared Zack Wilson, Executive Director for High Plains Food Bank. "We value our partnership with Clint & Sons, through the Clint & Sons High Plains Hunters Program. It's a cost effective way for us to provide quality meat to our 175 different partner agencies across the panhandle."
