Local food pantries grateful for donations of processed deer

Rotary President Debbie Dugan presents Access Illinois Outdoors coordinator Brenda Middendorf with a $500 donation to the Access Food program.  Brenda received the $500.00 check from Rotary to help with the processing of deer donated by hunters to the Food Pantries in Pike County.  Brenda reported that over 10,000 pounds of processed deer meat was distributed last year and this year she expects more, since the Area Disposal has told outfitters that they would not be picking up deer carcasses.  The area locker plants are processing the deer.  (Note: On 11-10-08 over 29 deer were brought to the refrigerated trailer at The Archery Shop, and over 2900 pounds of processed deer meat was distributed to the two Pike County Food Pantries).  Brenda should be commended for doing such an excellent job!

Subject: Thank you!!!
Please convey to your group our sincere appreciation for your generous donation to the Access Food project.  With today's delivery of meat from Magro's Processing in Auburn from our firearm season we have now exceeded 10,000 pounds of processed meat donated to the Pike County Food Pantries.  This came just in time to be included in the Christmas Basket program.  We thank you so much for your continued support of our efforts with this project.  It means so much to so many.
