Hunters provide meat to those in need

Rocky Mountain News: Hunters, farmers help the needy, disaster victims I nice story about Farmer and Hunters Feeding the Hungry. This is an interesting organization that gets hunters to donate game meats to local charities feeding the needy.
Nationally, FHFH has helped hunters donate 1,600 tons of game meat, resulting in 12.8 million meals, to soup kitchens since it started in 1997.
They have been a local charity - keeping the meat in the state in which it was donated, but they are trying to find a way to get some of the donations to Hurricane Katrina victims this year.
