Mission

SeaShare's mission is to engage the seafood industry in a collective effort to improve nutrition for the people served by food banks and feeding centers. We donate seafood to food banks across the United States.

SeaShare's mission is to engage the seafood industry in a collective effort to improve nutrition for the people served by food banks in the U.S. Each year we strive to distribute a minimum of 5 million seafood servings throughout the United States with the aid of over 140 seafood, cold storage, processing and freight company donations of product and services. Seafood protein is the most difficult commodity item for food banks to obtain, generally due to cost. Much of our seafood is donated, but when not all of the associated costs are covered, we request financial support from foundations, corporations, and individuals to bridge the gap.

Work within the seafood industry and associations to acquire product and service donations. Work with Feeding America to distribute seafood to food banks throughout the United States.

SeaShare can distribute to all states with the help of the Feeding America food bank network. We have generous partners in the seafood industry for product, processing, freight and storage that have worked with us since our inception in 1994.

The number of seafood servings reaching food banks is the best indicator of our efforts. It is the best and least readily available protein for food bank clients.

SeaShare has obtained and distributed 210 million seafood servings since 1994. We are working with over 140 seafood companies and associated service companies. We generally distribute in 22-25 states/year, including sending a significant portion of our donations to hungry Alaskans each year. Our Administrative overhead is low, with two full time and one half time employees, and a volunteer board of directors.
