Saturday Brings Game Meat Food Drive to Feeding SD Food Bank in Pierre



PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) A special event will be held tomorrow to help the hungry in South Dakota. A food drive will be conducted Saturday by Feeding South Dakota, Sportsmen Against Hunger, South Dakota Wildlife Federation and the local High Plains Wildlife Association. The “Clean Out Your Freezer” game meat food drive will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Feeding South Dakota Food Bank on Airport Road in Pierre. Hunters who need to clear freezer room for this year’s deer, antelope, elk and other game can donate frozen game meat during the drive. The program prefers commercially processed meat that is less than a year old and also accepted are donations of non-game meat and any other non-perishable food items. South Dakota Sportsmen Against Hunter president Jeff Olson says in a press release that the whole purpose is to get healthy game meat to the people who really need it. The state’s three Feeding South Dakota food banks supply nearly 500 food pantries and other food distributors in the state with food and Olson says the organizations have a real need for meat from deer and other game. Hunters can continue to help by donating processed meat from game animals harvested this fall. For more information on the Sportsmen Against Hunter program, visit
