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.

Local sportsmen and women, through the National Wild Turkey Federation, donated the turkey for the meal. The May 4 event, which Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has officially proclaimed Hunt.Fish.Feed Day in the City of Chicago, will serve more than 700 needy Chicagoans. 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."


"It is especially important to recognize the hunger issue in months not ordinarily associated with the tradition of Thanksgiving," said Pastor Phil Kwiatkowski, president of Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago.
