Hunt For The Hungry To Fill Food Bank Freezers

09/21/12 6:06AM

The New Hampshire Food Bank is reinitiating its hunting season program called "Hunt for the Hungry."

The food bank is collecting donations of whole or processed game animals killed during the fall hunting season, to share with the needy.

The food bank will distribute donated meat to more than 400 food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and other groups.

Last year, hunters donated 2,000 pounds of deer, bear, moose and other game meat.

Hunters should call the food bank for instructions on packaging donated meat.

Hunters should note the food bank is not equipped to accept donations of wild game birds such as turkey or grouse.
