DENVER – -(Ammoland.com)- Sportsman Channel’s Hunt.Fish.Feed. program is starting 2017 off by celebrating its 10-year anniversary of helping people in need.
During the past decade, the network has served more than 30,000 meals and donated 12,000 pounds of game meat and fish to shelters in cities large and small across the United States. Now, the network’s Hunt.Fish.Feed program is rolling out its 2017 tour with its cable/satellite operating partners nationwide.
The tour brings awareness to the still-existing struggle with hunger in the United Sates, as well as shines a light about how sportsmen and women’s contributions of game meat and fish help contribute to solve the problem. The first stop in 2017 will be on April 11 in San Antonio, Texas.
Hunt.Fish.Feed., created by Sportsman Channel, is a unique outreach program that taps an underutilized food source—game meat and fish donated by sportsmen and women—to feed men, women and children struggling with hunger across America. An average deer will dress down to roughly 70 pounds of meat, which can feed nearly 150 people in need.
“Hunt.Fish.Feed. continues to be a program that we enthusiastically support while also extolling the benefits of hunting and helping provide some of the healthiest food available,” said CEO and President of Outdoor Sportsman Group, Jim Liberatore. “We are especially grateful that partners like Comcast, Charter and others who understand and share our vision and – as an outdoor lifestyle community – want to help feed the less fortunate members of society.”

Executive Chef and Sportsman Channel host, Scott Leysath, along with volunteers gathered from each partnering location, will lead and prepare meals. Local sportsmen and women donate the meat or fish from their harvests for each meal and Outdoor Sportsman Group fills in the remainder to make a complete and nutritious meal. Leysath has been working with Sportsman Channel and the Hunt.Fish.Feed program since its inception in 2007.
“I’ve been humbled to work with Sportsman Channel to help cook nutritious meals and serve those in need,” said Leysath. “Each shelter is a recipient of organic, sustainable and renewable protein in the form of venison or fish. Our donations are always welcomed and in fact, we’ve been able to create ongoing donations between local sportsmen/women and shelters.”
Since 2007, Sportsman Channel has visited more than 50 cities with its Hunt.Fish.Feed program, targeting those with some of the highest homeless populations, including: New York City, Los Angeles, Detroit, Denver, Orange County, Las Vegas, Houston and Washington, D.C.
