SPOKANE, Wash.-- Usually nothing good comes from a vehicle that hits a deer, moose, or some other type of big game animal. That is, of course, unless it happens to be in Spokane.
The meat does not go to waste. On several occasions, the INWC Big Game Recovery Committee takes it to the Union Gospel Mission where it is used as a training tool and for food.
Students that are part of the UGM Culinary School learn different butchering techniques and different methods of cooking with the meat. Once the meat is prepared, it helps feed the homeless.
UGM officials said during the fall and winter months, protein is always scarce so the animals are a welcome sight. Volunteers said the meals are very tasty.
