"We're always on the lookout for meat," says Laura Rhea, president of the Arkansas Rice Depot, a food bank serving 300 church pantries across the state. She says she can usually get canned goods, grains, and bread. She can solicit cheese, produce, and sometimes a little chicken from a processor, especially around the holidays. "But meat is like gold to food banks. We can't ever get enough. And venison is just wonderful meat, lean and healthy. We put it in soups, stews, and chili. I'm sure that if more hunters knew just how much difference the gift of a single deer makes, we'd have a lot more venison showing up at our door."
