Join us for a conversation about Island Grown Initiatives's Venison Donation Program in collaboration with the Ag Society and other Island non-profits.
Last year 260 lb of local, protein rich venison was given to Islanders who face food insecurity. In this second year of the program, the Ag Society has offered access to a community cooler for hunters, with the fee waived if the meat is donated to IGI, via partnerships with the Island Food Pantry and Serving Hands. Reducing the deer population no only helps provide local food to those in need but can also help minimize the spread of Lyme Disease.
Come find out more in a conversation with members from the various organizations behind this program:
