Sportsman Channel and Comcast Host Hunt.Fish.Feed. Event at Loaves & Fishes with Sacramento Kings Players
Sportsman Channel and Comcast are teaming up to host a Hunt.Fish.Feed event in Sacramento on Thursday, November 14, serving a special waterfowl stew at Loaves & Fishes to 600 needy members of the community. Special guest Scott Leysath, Sportsman Channel TV host and Executive Chef, will help prepare and serve a hearty waterfowl stew with slow-cooked duck, seasonal vegetables and Sacramento Valley rice along with a mixed green salad and fresh fruit. Additionally, beginning at 2 p.m., Sacramento Kings players: Patrick Patterson, Ben McLemore and Luc Mbah a Moute will serve dessert at the park on site. Hunt.Fish.Feed., created by Sportsman Channel, is a unique outreach program that taps an underutilized food source—game meat and fish donated by sportsmen and women—to feed those struggling with hunger across America.
“We are honored to bring our Hunt.Fish.Feed.initiative to the Loaves & Fishes shelter and work with our partners Comcast, California Waterfowl Association and the Sacramento Kings,” said Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel. “It is a collaborative team effort with Comcast providing the volunteers, California Waterfowl Association providing the locally-harvested duck, the Kings players volunteering their time and Sportsman Channel bringing them all together to cook and serve the meal. We meet along a common path to fulfill a need – especially during an economic time that finds more and more people in need every day.”
“Comcast’s investment in our local communities spans many years, and our employees will again demonstrate that civic commitment by volunteering to prepare and serve food at this innovative Hunt.Fish.Feed. event,” said Elaine Barden, regional vice president of sales and marketing at Comcast California. “Comcast has robust relationships with both the Sacramento Kings and Sportsman Channel, and this is a tremendous example of community-minded partners uniting to benefit the Sacramento Capital Region.”
“Scott Leysath, the executive chef of Sportsman Channel, is a good friend, so when he asked me to get the team involved, I was happy to help,” said Sacramento Kings Assistant General Manager Mike Bratz. “Our community gives so much support to our team that it’s nice to give some support back to them. Loaves & Fishes does great work in Sacramento. The Kings are happy to help bring Hunt.Fish.Feed. to them.”
