Hunters -- You Can Help the Hungry
CONCORD, N.H. -- If you've had a successful hunting season and your freezer is chock full of meat, why not share the fall harvest with New Hampshire's hungry? Hunters can help the less fortunate by donating meat to the "Hunt for the Hungry" program coordinated by the New Hampshire Food Bank in Manchester. The program collects donations of whole or processed game animals for distribution to more than 270 food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and group homes statewide.
Last year, Hunt for the Hungry took in more than 1,300 pounds of donated deer, bear, moose, duck and other game meat. The program offers packaging instructions and can pick up donations. To donate game meat, call Michele Garron of the New Hampshire Food Bank at (603) 669-9725.
