The National Park Service at Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania donated more than 8,000 pounds of venison to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank since October, a local CBS affiliate reports. The game was harvested as part of the federal government's deer management program at Gettysburg and the neighboring Eisenhower National Historic Site.
This winter, those federal employees qualified for the program took more than 200 deer.
Coffee crusted backstraps! I rubbed these beautiful pieces of God's bounty down with a homemade dry rub we created! A delicious mixture of coffee grounds and spices made these steaks a rustic masterpiece! @blackriflecoffee #coffee #dryrub #backstraps
The meat was processed by Butcher Block in Biglerville, and will go to good use with the Central PA Food Bank, which serves more than 36,000 meals each winter to those in need in 27 counties.
