A couple of years ago, after reading about the successful "feed the hungry" programs predominantly in the southern US, I called a local food bank in the Fredericton area to suggest that I'd be willing to develop such a program here, addressing any concerns/issues they might have. It would be of great assistance to food bank users who can presently obtain most foods for their meals... except for meat which is probably your most expensive to buy food staple. Wild meat is undisputably the healthiest meat you can eat. Such a program where we hunters share with the less fortunate has the obnvious benefits but it is also a great "PR" opportunity for hunters and our sport as well. The food bank "rep" whether a non-hunter or possibly an anti-hunter" flatly refused to even consider such a program...for whatever personal reasons...wouldn't even discuss it further. I'd like to see what you guys and gals on this site think about the idea and if you'd be willing to join such a program if we could get it started. Sorry about being long-winded on this topic but I believe it would be a "win-win" situation that could be supported by community, F&G clubs, sportsmen and even government...what do you think?
