I was looking for new people to follow on Twitter today when I found @ladysportsman. She works for the communications department of the Sportsman Channel. After following her, I got a message that she was coming into town this weekend for the Sportsman Channel’s Hunt.Fish.Feed. event.

Hunt.Fish.Feed.SM is a really cool initiative to encourage sportsmen to donate their extra game meat and fish to hunger relief organizations to help fight hunger. They started in Las Vegas earlier this year and will be traveling to nine more cities this year, including the Twin Cities this weekend.

Here in the Twin Cities, the Sportsman Channel partnered with Comcast, Safari Club International Foundation, and the annual FISHAPALOOZA ice fishing tournament to ask participants to donate the fish they catch to the Hunt.Fish.Feed event on Sunday. FISHAPALOOZA will take place Saturday, February 27 at 12pm-3pm on Forest Lake.

On Sunday, volunteers will be preparing meals for Hunt.Fish.Feed. from 9:30-11:30am and serving them from 11:30am-1:00pm at the Catholic Charities Dorothy Day Center in St. Paul. I’ll be volunteering there with Star Tribune contributor Jim Braaten. Jim’s article about the event also has a video of the event held in Las Vegas.

If you have extra game meat from your hunts, please consider donating to your local hunger relief organization. Safari Club International’s Sportsmen Against Hunger (SAH) program has a list of hunger relief organizations and meat processors across the country that will accept game meat donations.
