Do you still have some excess venison in the freezer you might be willing to donate? The Sportsman Channel’s Hunt. Fish. Feed. project is coming to St. Paul this Sunday and they could use some additional sportsman-donated venison to help feed those in need.
This successful event was first launched in Las Vegas, NV last month (during the SHOT Show) and will be hosted in several additional cities throughout the U.S. during the upcoming year. The effort showcases sportsmen providing food for and feeding those less fortunate in each respective city.
The Twin Cities event is special because it’s being held in conjunction with FISHAPALOOZA—the region’s largest ice fishing contest. During that event on Saturday in Forest Lake, participants will be given the chance to donate their catch to the feed-the-hungry event taking place the next day.
"This is a unique opportunity for us to connect anglers with our Hunt.Fish.Feed efforts to serve fish alongside our venison dishes," said Todd Hansen, Sr. Vice President of Sportsman Channel. "A special thanks to our partners, Comcast, Sportsmen Against Hunger and FISHAPALOOZA for helping us accomplish this goal and bring awareness to sportsmen's efforts to help those in need."
WHAT: Hunt.Fish.Feed.SM Twin Cities
WHO: Expecting to serve over 350 nutritious meals to those in need
WHERE: Catholic Charities Dorothy Day Center
183 Old 6th Street
St. Paul, MN 55102
WHEN: Sunday, February 28, 2010, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
If you have extra venison to share, please consider helping out this worthwhile cause by donating it for this event or to your local food shelf.
I plan on being there this Sunday to volunteer and to meet many other sportsmen giving generously of their time and their harvested game/fish resources. This is a great community service project reflecting both a positive image on all hunters and fishermen while at the same time showing how a charitable component truly exists within our outdoor sports.
