COALGATE, Okla. -- This is not your average holiday season food drive.

We're talking wild game.

It's the Hunters Against Hunger program. Hunters who legally harvest deer can donate venison to feed hungry Oklahomans; just take your deer to the nearest participating processor.

H&L Custom Processing in Coalgate is part of the program.

"We process it, give it to the local food bank," said H&L's Gary Hensley. "It's just a little bit of simple paperwork. It's a really neat process, an easy process, and it helps local families in need."

If you donate your venison, the processing is free of charge, although a $10 donation is suggested. So far this season, H&L has donated close to 600 pounds of meat to food banks this year.

"It's easy to kill an extra deer and donate it to us," Hensley said.
