Sportsman Channel and Comcast are teaming up to host a Hunt.Fish.Feed event in Red Bank, N.J. on Sept. 24, serving a special venison taco dinner at Lunch Break to more than 175 of those in need.
Special guest Scott Leysath, Sportsman Channel TV host and Executive Chef, will help prepare and serve venison tacos with all the fixings. 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 — to feed those struggling with hunger across America. New Jersey’s event will utilize more than 50 pounds of venison donated by the Mule Deer Foundation.
Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna will be in attendance during the lunch session.
“We’re especially honored to bring our Hunt.Fish.Feed. initiative to the Jersey Shore where so many are still experiencing loss and still recuperating to get back on their feet, said Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel. “We look forward to working with our partners at Comcast and Lunch Break to make this a successful and impactful event.
“Programs like Hunt.Fish.Feed. provide unique avenues to help the needy, especially during an economic time that finds more and more people in need every day.”
“We are thrilled to be part of this creative and unique effort to help the less fortunate of New Jersey,” said Rob Clifton, Comcast Government Affairs Director. “Projects like Hunt.Fish.Feed. demonstrate that there are ways for us all to lend a hand and help people get their lives back on track.”
Lunch Break freely provides life’s basic necessities — food, clothing and fellowship for community members in need. Their mission is to alleviate hunger and lead those they serve to self-sufficiency and healthier lifestyles. Lunch Break was awarded the Spinnaker Non-Profit of the Year award by the Eastern Monmouth Chamber of Commerce in 2012.
“Lunch Break is honored and humbled that we have been selected to host Sportsman Channel and Comcast for the Hunt.Feed.Fish. event,” said Gwendolyn Love, executive director for Lunch Break. “Our lunch guests are really in for a treat and we are thrilled to be the venue in which they have this opportunity. We are truly thankful to the staff at Sportsman Channel and Comcast, and all those associated with this generous gift, to those less fortunate in our community.”
