On Tuesday January 22, 2013 needy members of the Reno-Sparks community enjoyed a healthy meal provided by members of the Safari Club International, the SCI Northern Nevada Chapter, the Salvation Army and local area businesses.
The meal, which was provided at the Reno Event Center, included buffalo meatloaf, salad, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables and cake. “Without the support of multiple sponsors, this event wouldn’t be possible”, said Major Michael Zielinski of the local Salvation Army. “We expect to feed somewhere between 1700 and 1800 local needy people tonight. This is a great outreach into the community”.
Buffalo, game and other processed meat was donated by the Northern Nevada and North American Handgun Chapters of the SCI. The Redding, California Chapter also had their Sensory Safari display on hand for attendees to learn more about wildlife and nature in general.
