Venison, always popular in Kentucky, has been growing in popularity – and in appreciation.
Food pantries have been expressing gratitude for donations of venison to feed the hungry masses, and Shelby County is no exception.
“They love it,” said Sister Pat Reno, executive director of Centro Latino.
“A lot of people grew up in Kentucky, and they like it [venison] a lot.”
Even for those who are squeamish about eating “Bambi,” it works very well, she said.
