Industry news SCIF, Salvation Army Feed The Hungry he Salvation Army and the Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) hosted their 11th Annual Feed the Hungry Feast in Reno on Jan. 19, 2010, as part of the SCI Annual Hunters’ Convention. More than 150 volunteers served nearly 2,000 meals, featuring elk meatloaf, to Reno’s needy citizens. The SCIF’s Sportsmen Against Hunger program contributes game meat to the Salvation Army, which helps organize the event. Over 800 pounds of Roosevelt elk and beef were donated by the Northern Nevada Chapter of Safari Club International and by Multiple Use Managers, a wildlife management service. “The economic difficulties being faced by families throughout the country have created a severe need for a healthful and safe source of protein. Our SCIF hunting family is proud to step up to the plate to provide thousands of highly nutritious, protein-packed meals by way of our continued donations of harvested game meat through our Sportsmen Against Hunger program,” said Gene Rurka, SCI Foundation Humanitarian Services chairman.
