I am retired, and have a limited amount that I can give to nonprofit organizations. We donate food from our garden locally, and when we can, donate to Seashare. The expertise and the willingness of the companies to help feed those in need the best protein for healthy meals is amazing. Every little bit helps, and I encourage anyone I know to donate to Seashare.
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. Reg Buchanan Food Resources Food Bank of Alaska
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.
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.
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.
