****Hunters For The Hungry
David and Becky had the privilege of meeting Jason Hall of the Hunters for the Hungry program. Hunters for the Hungry is a means for hunters to assist in tackling food insecurity in Maine. Hunters can pursue their passion and have an option to donate their kill, or a portion, to the program. H4H will match them up with a processor close to the hunter’s location and not only coordinate the meat getting to a pantry, kitchen or shelter, but it will pay for the processing.
