SeaShare works closely with the US seafood industry to source high quality, nutritious seafood and has provided more than 750,000 pounds of seafood to Feeding America-affiliated food banks across the country since the onset of COVID-19. Over the next 90 days, SeaShare expects to source, process, and deliver an additional 750,000 pounds to those in need.
SeaShare described some of their work: "New York and Connecticut each received semi truckloads of pollock, over 37,000 pounds, nearly 150,000 servings, each. San Francisco received a semi truckload of bycatch salmon steaks. The feeding program at the Union Gospel Mission in downtown Seattle received almost 12,000 pounds of bycatch salmon and halibut. Bycatch whole salmon was sent to the food bank in Kodiak, AK and given to struggling senior citizens in the community.
SeaShare heard this from its partners at the Southeast Alaska Food Bank in Juneau, Alaska: "We took delivery yesterday of 14,681 pounds of SeaShare product and transferred the 15 pallets to our 40' freezer container [donated by SeaShare to the food bank in 2019]. Thank you for the product!"
