In this special edition of our HIGH FIVING CELEBRITIES series we bring you the Vancouver Canucks’ David Booth and our friend Mark Brand from Save On Meats. This past Sunday they served up moose hotdogs, duck chili and venison stew to 1,200 hungry folks in the Downtown Eastside. If that selection of food sounds strange to you, then the fact that David is an avid hunter should shed some light on it. The food served – 600 pounds of wild game meat – was hunted by David, his friend, Adam Hill (who both organize Hunting for Humanity) and other hunters in BC.
The meal was supported by A Better Life Foundation, Save On Meats, Unique Storage & Organizers and of course Mark and David, providing a high quality, organic meal (wild meat = no hormones/steroids/anything). “This was a great opportunity to share a hot, healthy meal to those in need,” said Booth. “We recognized that those in need can be forgotten once the Christmas season is over and wanted to try to help them through the cold winter months.”.
