April 1 beef jerky promotion aids Safari Club International Foundation’s Sportsmen Against Hunger program.
Marfood USA Inc. has donated more than $50,000 in Pemmican Beef Jerky to Safari Club International Foundation’s Sportsmen Against Hunger Program.
On April 1, Pemmican Beef Jerky gave away one free bag of beef jerky every 20.11 seconds to kick off its new Pemmican Trail Campaign. For every free bag won by consumers during the April 1 giveaway, Marfood USA donated two bags of Pemmican Beef Jerky to Safari Club International Foundation’s Sportsmen Against Hunger program.
Marfood USA Marketing Manager Nakia Watkins said she is proud her company is able to deliver on a promi
se that will help those in need. “The Pemmican Trail is all about each individual’s efforts to Make Things Better,” Watkins said. “We like the fact that we’ve turned April Fool’s Day into a day to show we mean business about making things better and helping those in need.”
Joseph Hosmer, president of Safari Club International Foundation, noted that his organization is grateful Marfood USA sought out its Sportsmen Against Hunger Program to be the recipient of this plentiful contribution. “We truly appreciate this thoughtful and generous donation of beef jerky,” Hosmer said. “Protein is very difficult and expensive to find during tough economic times so this donation will go a long way to provide sustenance for many families.”

s of meals have been served at local soup kitchens, food banks, or other charitable organizations. This and similar Safari Club International Foundation programs are active in all 50 states of the U.S., in parts of Canada, and in several other countries around the world.
