Remember Sportsmen Against Hunger
Deer season is underway, meaning it is also a great time to consider the Sportsmen Against Hunger program. For over 15 years, the Community Action Partnership of North Dakota Sportsmen Against Hunger program has grown and changed with the needs of the state. Food pantries continue to be in need of healthy sources of protein, particularly fresh meat.
The goal of Sportsmen Against Hunger is to increase the amount of legally-obtained game meat donated to food pantries statewide. Sportsmen Against Hunger brings together willing hunters, happy to donate, and those who need nutritious protein sources the most.
Most legally-obtained wild game will be accepted. Additional information is available by calling Chandler Esslinger, program coordinator, 701-232-2452.
Sportmen Against Hunger relies on donations and grant funding to pay for the processing of all donated game. A complete list of cooperating processors can be found on the Community Action ND website.
