SeaShare has continued to support Food Bank of Alaska by providing much needed protein in the form of canned salmon. This product is distributed to FBA agencies serving villages and communities throughout Southcentral Alaska and the Matanuska Valley. At a time of reduced income from both government and traditional donation sources due to a sluggish economy the salmon provided by SeaShare is invaluable in trying to provide a balanced, healthy diet to our neoghbors in need.

I am a food resource, freight and logistics person for the Food Bank of Alaska. FBA provides food assistance to food pantries all over the State of Alaska and distributes approximately 6,000,000 lbs of food to over 80,000 Alaskan each year. Seashare has been a wondeful help in providing much needed protein (other than peanut butter) to needy families all over Alaska. As much of the product is from Alaskan waters its culturally acceptable and meets a definite need, especially in rural Alaska, during the winter months. Working with Jim and Mary Harmon has been a very productive experience in obtaining, shipping and distributing these very valuable seafood commodities.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Distribution of Seahare products to Alaskan food pantries serving needy families as well as other Alaskan food banks. I have personally visited many of these food pantries and know first hand what they are doing with the products.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it. Lack of protein other than USDA peanut butter is a constant challenge that every food bank deals with and, with a down economy the last couple of years, the demand on food banks for nutritous foods has grown enormously.

Sea Share is without a doubt the most efficient charity organization that I know about. I know that my donation dollars are spent doing the job instead of funding membership drives or political agendas.

For years, Seashare has provided seafood to hungry people across western Washington. With the economy as it is, there is a huge wave of need. Many of the people coming to food banks are normal people who have lost their job or are struggling to just make ends meet. It is awesome that Seashare is there for them, distributing hundreds of thousands of pounds of amazing food, (vital protein!) year after year. Food Lifeline is proud to work with Seashare in distributing these valuable seafood donations.

SeaShare is an irreplaceable partner to the food bank network. Food Lifeline distributes food to over 300 food banks in Western Washington and SeaShare sources donations for hundreds of thousands of pounds of high quality, nutritious seafood ever year. The relationships they have built with seafood companies are productive, personal, and incredibly beneficial to hungry people in the region. We could not provide the service and variety of food to our agencies without SeaShare.

The Great!

If it were not for SeaShare, I would be spending substantially more of my time building relationships with seafood companies in the area and a better understanding of their industry. Because SeaShare is so effectively involved with donors, I can spend my time building partnerships with companies in other industries that require my attention, such as produce, manufacturing and distribution.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Change nothing.

SeaShare is the only non-profit working with the U.S. seafood industry to solicit donations of fish for hunger relief programs. The six Seattle-area seafood companies that I represent joined together more than a decade ago, pledging to provide one million fish meals a year to SeaShare's program. SeaShare partners with food agencies across the U.S. to get these protein-rich fish products efficiently distributed across the U.S. for food assistance.

I recently joined the board of SeaShare with the goal of encouraging other seafood industry members to support this great program.

SeaShare's challenge is to corral support from a very fragmented U.S. seafood industry and to overcome the logistical challenges of moving seafood across the U.S. in a cost effective manner.
