Everett Food Bank to benefit from fish donations at Everett Coho Derby this weekend

There is something special happening at the Everett Coho Derby this weekend that will benefit the less fortunate in the Seattle area.

The Sportsman Channel and Comcast are donating fish caught by tournament anglers to battle hunger, and it is part of the Sportsman Channel’s “Hunt.Fish.Feed.Day Outreach Program.”

Tournament anglers from the event will donate more than 1,000 pounds of fresh fish caught to the Volunteers of America food bank in North Everett. The fish caught will be processed thanks to the volunteers of the Everett Salmon Association and Comcast.

Volunteers of America Western Washington will distribute the salmon to more than 2,000 families through its food bank.

“Thanks to Comcast, Sportsman Channel and the Everett Derby, we are able to help even more families in the Everett community. It’s an impactful event and we are glad to be a part of it,” Leann Geiger, senior director of Basic Needs Services at VOAWW said in a news release.

The Everett Hunt.Fish.Feed event is part of a four city tour surrounding National Hunting & Fishing Day, which is Saturday, September 28.
