"We are pleased to continue our partnership with Safari Club International Foundation's Sportsmen Against Hunger for the upcoming Hunt.Fish.Feed.SM event," said Todd Hansen, Sr. Vice President of The Sportsman Channel. "This is a great endeavor to bring awareness to the fight for hunger while attending one our industry's largest events."
Since Safari Club International started the Sportsmen Against Hunger program in 1989, tens of millions of meals have been served at local soup kitchens, food banks, or other charitable organizations, such as The Salvation Army. Donations continue to increase each year. In 2006, 251,018 pounds of wild game meat were donated to relief organizations; in 2007, the figure had jumped to 318,793 lbs., which is the equivalent of 1,275,172 meals.
"Safari Club International Foundation is committed to maximizing donations of game meats and protein-processing equipment to help stem the loss of vital nutrients during these economic hardships," said Gene Rurka, SCIF Humanitarian Services Chairman. "SCIF's Sportsmen Against Hunger program will provide the vital protein source for millions of people in need. We are pleased to partner with The Sportsman Channel to provide to those in need."
The Sportsman Channel's Hunt.Fish.Feed.SM initiative connects true outdoorsmen to whom hunting is synonymous with harvesting. Launched in 2007, the Hunt.Fish.Feed.SM initiative has since served the local communities of New Orleans, LA, Milwaukee, WI and Washington, D.C., garnering recognition for responsible sportsmen who have given back to feed those who are less fortunate.
