Lower costs? Fewer pickups? Lower salary? The same trucks, running the same routes because some people will still be putting yard waste out. And if you think City workers will cut their own paid hours because of fewer pickups, you're delusional.

He's been contemplating his decision for the last several months while spending his time in Sarasota, Florida and still collecting his $180,000....very smart man to get away with that and still have the Board President say he's great!

If I were a betting man.... I would bet that the city council on Monday does not pass the budget. it will be like 9-5 opposed. Then a special council meeting on Thursday to try and pass a budget on Friday.

You're 100% right that it would change what some people do, including - it seems - yourself. And do you know what that would result in? Lower costs to the city. Fewer pick-ups due to people doing it themselves means lower vehicle maintenance. Lower salary expense due to decreased hours. Yes, some people would stop using the service, which reduces the EXPENSE of providing that service. The point…

Share the Harvest happening now

2 years, 5 months ago by

The processed venison, usually ground into burger, is distributed to local food pantries and is made available to families

The Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri, along with the Conservation Federation and local food pantries, encourage area hunters to donate a deer for the purpose of helping families in the local community.

Share the Harvest is a program administered by the Conservation Federation of Missouri.  Hunters who want to participate simply take their deer to a participating meat processor.  There is typically no processing fee charged to the hunter when a whole deer is donated.  The processor is reimbursed $60 by the Conservation Federation, for each whole deer processed.

The processed venison, usually ground into burger, is distributed to local food pantries and is made available to families in the community who are struggling to make ends meet.

Financially speaking, many families are currently experiencing the "perfect storm".   The rising costs of groceries, fuel and utilities, often coupled with the loss of a job, cause many local families to have to choose between basic necessities.  Donating a deer to share the Harvest is one way to help mitigate these difficult choices.

In 2011, the 11 days that comprised the Firearms "Main Portion" season yielded 191,000 of the 292,000 deer harvested throughout all deer hunting seasons.   Over 6,000 deer were donated to Share the Harvest in 2011.

Many processors only accept deer donations for a few weeks in November, which include the 11 days of the Firearms "Main Portion" season.

For more information about Share the Harvest call The Food Bank at (800) 764-3663 or visit www.mdc.mo.gov and click on "Share the Harvest".
