Hunters Helping the Hungry Provide Venison to SE NE Families in Need

Venison from Dens November 2020 web

Den's Country Meats in Table Rock collected 1200 pounds of donated deer meat this year through the Nebraska Game and Parks Hunters Helping the Hungry program.

Pictured are: front row L to R - Haley Beethe and Jordan Schaardt, Den's employees; Nicole Wilken and Ashley Babb, SENCA staff; back row - Patrice Groves, Kay Wissmann and Sherry Huddleston, SENCA staff; and Destinee Florea, Den's employee.

The donated venison helps stock SENCA food pantries throughout the six county core service area. Emergency situations, such as food insecurity, is one of the primary reasons that many households initially seek assistance from SENCA. Trained outreach staff work one-on-one, in a holistic manner, to help ensure low-income households have access to a variety of programs and services that not only help with their immediate need, but introduce them to other resources they may qualify for as they work towards self-sufficiency. Southeast Nebraska households who are experiencing food insecurity, please contact your local SENCA Outreach Office, Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and schedule an appointment.  
  
A special "Thank You" to all the hunters who donated the deer and to Den's for supporting SENCA with the meat!  For more information regarding the Hunters Helping the Hungry program please visit Hunters Helping the Hungry - Nebraska Game and ParksNebraska Game and Parks | (outdoornebraska.gov).
