CONCORD, N.H.—The New Hampshire Food Bank is asking hunters to share their fall harvest with the needy through the "Hunt for the Hungry" program.

The food bank is collecting donations of whole or processed game animals for distribution to more than 400 food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and group shelters statewide.

Last year, the program took in nearly 2,200 pounds of donated deer, bear, moose and other game meat for distribution to the needy.

Bruce Wilson, director of operations for the food bank, says donations of protein foods are always had to come by.

To donate game and for packaging instructions call the food bank at 669-9725, extension 240.
