To donate game, and for packaging instructions, call the Food Bank at 669-9725, Ext. 240. If you’re donating a whole deer, you can bring it to Lemay & Sons Beef in Goffstown, (622-0022), and they will process it for the food bank at no charge.
The N.H. Food Bank is not equipped to accept donations of wild game birds, such as wild turkey or grouse.
“We are counting on continued strong support from hunters this year,” said Bruce Wilson, director of operations for the N.H. Food Bank. “Donations of protein foods are always hard to come by. That’s a big need that the Hunt for the Hungry program helps fill. Venison is especially popular, a real treat for clients.”
“The Hunt for the Hungry program is a great way for hunters to share their harvest and help needy families get through the winter,” said Glenn Normandeau, executive director of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. “Wild game is a local renewable resource that is high in protein, low in fat and all natural – not to mention delicious.”
