Hopkins Co. deer hunters sharing their harvest

HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

Deer hunters in Hopkins County are sharing their harvest to feed the hungry. 

For the second year, the Want Not Waste Not program is supplying deer meat for the Hope Two All Food Bank in Nortonville. Organizers pick up any extra meat from the hunters and deliver it pre-packaged to the food bank.

We're told the food bank fed over 1,800 people last month.

"Our numbers are higher than they normally are for a holiday season and the deer meat has really been a blessing for us to have and put in those boxes," said Brad Payne, the food bank director.

Just this season, the Want Not Waste Not program donated over 5,000 pounds of deer meat to the food bank.
