“We are pleased to continue our partnership with Safari Club International Foundation's Sportsmen Against Hunger for the upcoming Hunt.Fish.Feed. tour,” said Mark Kang, VP of Affiliate Relations. “We look forward to partnering with our affiliates to help educate our communities on the importance of harvesting as well as all the contributions sportsmen make to help fight hunger.”
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.
“This is a tremendous initiative and we look forward to putting our full resources behind it,” says InterMedia Outdoors CEO Jeff Paro. “As a Company, we have a responsibility to help our communities and people and the Hunt.Fish.Feed tour allows us to reach out and help thousands.”
“The 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 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 and the Hunt.Fish.Feed. initiative to provide to those in need.”
