Golden Food Bank accepting game meat

The Golden Food Bank is asking local hunters to help out the cause by donating any of their unused game.

The Golden Food Bank is asking local hunters to help out the cause by donating any of their unused game.

“We know that most people are probably using what they kill, but we would really like people to know that we will gladly accept any extra or unused game,” said Stephanie Findlater, hamper co-ordinator for the food bank.

Each food bank recipient receives ground beef in their hampers. And with the food shortage the Golden Food Bank experienced this pas summer, they needed to cut back on the amount given per hamper.

The meat will have to be professionally cleaned and processed, which will be done at Konig Meats & Sausage Co. in Invermere, but it will cost the food bank one third of what they would be paying for meat in the grocery store.

“If people have any game they would like to donate to the food ban, it can be taken to Invermere…where we will arrange the processing and transport back to our freezers here in Golden. Basically, if they can get to Invermere, we can handle it from there,” said Findlater.

If anyone has any questions about the locally hunted game program at the food bank, email info@goldenfoodbank.ca.
