What is happening with the venison from the removal?

All venison from this removal is being donated to the Greater Lansing Food Bank. With an average of 30 pounds of venison recovered per deer removed, this venison donation will be of great use to community members served by the food bank. During these difficult times, the City is pleased to be able to offer this relief to local families. The processing of the venison has been generously donated by nonprofit Michigan Sportsman Against Hunger (MSAH): https://www.sportsmenagainsthunger.org/. Community members can learn more about MSAH here.
