SeaShare Tackles the Hunger Crisis in America | Seafoodie
Seafood is essential to feeding hungry Americans
The COVID-19 crisis has plunged tens of millions more people in this country into food insecurity. At a time when millions have lost their jobs, many Americans are turning to food banks to feed their families. SeaShare, an innovative non-profit, moves high-quality, first-run seafood that, instead of being sold in a market or restaurant, is distributed to food banks nationwide. Getting seafood from the ocean into food banks is a complex and costly process. SeaShare provides the framework and logistics that allow a wide range of partners to work together to make large- and small-scale donations possible. Over the past 24 years, SeaShare has delivered more than 220 million seafood servings to food banks and feeding centers. Seafoodie host, Chef Robert Jones, talks with Jim Harmon, Executive Director of SeaShare, about the monumental task of delivering fresh seafood to our nation's hungry. Where there's a will, there's a way.
