Hunt for the Hungry:
N.H. Food Banks Seek Meat Donations from Hunters
Got meat? New Hampshire hunters can share their harvest with the needy through the “Hunt for the Hungry” program at the New Hampshire Food Bank. The food bank collects donations of whole or processed game animals for distribution to more than 350 food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and group homes statewide. The program offers packaging instructions and can pick up your meat donation.
To donate game, call Kaytlynn Brewster at the N.H. Food Bank: (603) 669-9725, x240.
If you’re donating a whole deer, you can bring it to Lemay & Sons Beef in Goffstown, N.H. (603-622-0022), and they will process it for the food bank at no charge. For more information on donating game meat to the New Hampshire Food Bank, visit www.nhfoodbank.org.
