AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Needy families in Maine will receive donations of fresh fish caught at ice fishing tournaments this winter.

The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is expanding the Hunters for the Hungry Program to include fish caught at ice fishing derbies in New Gloucester in January and Sebago Lake and Kezar Lake in February.

The program allows Maine hunters to give up their deer, moose and bear to help out the needy. The meat is donated to food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters to feed those in need.
