The turkey for the feast is being provided by the National Wild Turkey Federation – Midwest Chapter.

NEW BERLIN, Wis. – Outdoor Sportsman Group's Networks division (Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and World Fishing Network) is teaming up again with multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD) – Comcast, Suddenlink, Mid-Continent and other cable operators, as well as the organizers of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association's (NCTA) Internet & Television Expo (INTX) – to host its first Hunt.Fish.Feed. event of the year in Chicago.

Throughout its seven-year history, the Hunt.Fish.Feed. program has served more than 25,000 meals to less fortunate members of society in more than 40 cities.

"As we start a new year of our Hunt.Fish.Feed. program, it is only fitting that we celebrate with a 'Thanksgiving Day' meal that includes our great partners at Comcast, Suddenlink, Mid-Continent and NCTA/INTX," said Steve Smith, executive vice president of affiliate sales and marketing, Outdoor Sportsman Group. "The Hunt.Fish.Feed. program continues to be a tent-pole event in our endeavors and we are very proud that our partners are teaming with us to help call attention to the problem of hunger in the United States."
