“This is an important partnership for our organization and we are delighted to have the continued support of the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation (and) the Hunt for Hunger Program,” Deborah Hamp, the food bank’s director of operations, said in a release.

“It’s great to be able to provide high quality protein to people who rely on the food bank, especially during the cold winter months, and we are grateful to the hunters and to SWF for all of their hard work and generous support.”
