JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Hunters and fishers would be able to donate lawfully taken fish, game and aquatic plants to food service programs in Alaska under legislation proposed Wednesday.

The bill defines food service programs as those that provide meals at schools, medical facilities, residential child care facilities or multipurpose senior centers. Donors could not receive payment for their donations.

HB 179, from Rep. Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, was introduced with bipartisan support.

According to a release from Kreiss-Tomkins’ office, the sponsors believe schools and senior centers should be legally allowed to have the option of serving Alaskans caribou instead of corn dogs.
