NH Hunt For The Hungry.

NH Hunters Can Feed Hungry Neighbors With Special Program.


Hunters Can Feed Hungry

Share the harvest, hunt for the hungry!

CONCORD, NH -- New Hampshire hunters can share their fall harvest with the needy through the "Hunt for the Hungry" program at the New Hampshire Food Bank. Once again this fall, the Food Bank is collecting donations of whole or processed game animals for distribution to more than 425 food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and group homes statewide.

In 2016, the Hunt for the Hungry program took in approximately 420 pounds of donated deer, moose, and other game meat for distribution to those in need. This was a significant decrease from prior year donations. The need continues to grow, so please consider donating your game meat to help feed our neighbors in need in New Hampshire.

To donate game, and for packaging instructions, call the Food Bank at (603) 669-9725, extension 245. If you are donating a whole deer or moose, call Lemay & Sons Beef in Goffstown, N.H. at (603) 622-0022, and they will arrange to process it for the Food Bank at no charge.

Please note that the N.H. Food Bank is not equipped to accept donations of bear meat or wild game birds such as wild turkey or grouse.

"We are counting on continued strong support from hunters this year," said Bruce Wilson, Director of Operations for the New Hampshire Food Bank. "Donations for protein foods fill a big need with the Hunt for the Hungry program. Venison is especially popular, a real treat for clients. Last year, we got some moose meat, and as soon as it came in, out it went! As always, we want to thank New Hampshire hunters and Lemay's for their continued support. We couldn’t do what we do without their combined support."

"The Hunt for the Hungry program is a great way for hunters to share their harvest and help needy families get through the winter," said Glenn Normandeau, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. "Wild game is a local, renewable resource that is high in protein, low in fat, and all natural -- not to mention delicious."
