Louisiana soup kitchen forced to toss donated deer meat.

Post by jakeg823 on Mon Feb 25, 2013 10:46 am

And this is what disturbed me about this:
The controversy started when someone being fed at the rescue mission complained about being fed deer meat.

Really??? Really??? Sounds like this person deserves to be where they are in life if they're that ungrateful.

Anyway, here's he link:

If I were one of the hunters who donated meat, or even the processing plant I would be mad as hell. If I donate anything it better be used how its supposed to or I want it back. Period.

Anyone know what the policy is in MS regarding this? Seems like a really effective way to feed a butt load of people, from the stats given in the article.

the meat has to be processed for them to accept it.

We send about 6 deer a year to the miss children village.

I have no clue to the legality of it, but a fella I used to work with donated 90% of what he killed to the local church. He fed a lot of needy people over the years...

Crap like that makes you not want to help folks.

We take a bunch of our herd thinnings to Friend of Alcoholics...Dont have to be processed...jus take it on da hoof...They handle it from there and eat good.

I've always considered hunger to be a good motivator...them foks at the soup kitchen in La need to get a clue

You don't like good deer meat, then find you somewhere else to eat or do without!

But now they can.

I know we all know at least one person who has claimed to have bought a meal for a homeless person only to have the homeless person reject it because they wanted something else. It's a pretty standard story unfortunately.

I have always been told that meat used in charity kitchens, group homes, orphanages, etc., in MS, had to be inspected by the feds. That is why none of the clubs I've been in donated any.

I give to needing individuals. I'll give it to my dogs before I give it to ungrateful people or organizations.

Mississippi use to have an organization called sportsmen for hunger. You could donate 5 pounds of meat to them by telling the deer processor to donate 5 pounds for you and they would charge you a reduced rate. I know for certain both Van's and Lee's use to participate. Since I have not killed a deer in 2 years I no longer know if this is still being done. I donated some deer a few years ago down town to the soup kitchen and they took it unprocessed and they told me if I killed a hog I could bring it unprocessed too. I have pretty much quit hunting so haven't donated in awhile. I am free to hog hunt one day a month anybody that wishes to invite me please message me

"The controversy started when someone being fed at the rescue mission complained about being fed deer meat."

I hog hunt with a fellow that takes all the scraps for his dogs. Head, hide, feet...everything but the guts. The first time he did it I asked, "your dogs eat that pig hide?" his answer, "Not that first week."

While growing up you NEVER complained about anything that hit the table. If you didn't like it you ate around it. If you complained you immediately left the table. If you were very lucky you could sit when the next meal was served.
