SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV (AP) -Meat processors participating in the Hunters Helping the Hungry program are getting a larger reimbursement from the state.
The Division of Natural Resources says the reimbursement has been increased from $1.45 per pound of processed venison to $2 per pound. The change went into effect with the 2015 deer seasons.
The increase is funded by a grant from the nonprofit Governor’s One Shot, Inc. The group organizes an annual fundraising event, the Governor’s One Shot Whitetail Hunt, to support the food program.
