The Challenge Ahead

“It’s been a challenging two years”— said everyone, everywhere. The food bank network continues to experience a huge increase in demand, ranging from approximately 60 percent spike in traffic in mid-2020 to 50 percent at the end of last year. The difference for food banks now is the same situation that is hitting all consumers — the price of all goods is going up. Food at home costs are up 9.3 percent in October 2021 relative to January 2020. To add insult to injury, cost increases across the supply chain have made donations to food banks more expensive.  


The Role SeaShare Plays in Food Waste Recovery

Posted on November 16, 2021

The food waste recovery movement, organized by ReFED, has been hard at work to not just calculate the problem at hand, but to also find ways to reduce food waste. SeaShare is a member of the ReFED Insights Engine, an online data center designed to serve as the next generation of data, insights, and guidance on U.S. food waste. This data is meant to lay the foundation for action to reduce food waste and loss in the United States by 50% by 2030, which is one of the targets of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for nations worldwide.

This is the second shipment to the Yukon: Last month Bristol Bay seafood processors collected 25,000 pounds of salmon for communities on the Yukon, which faced a winter without salmon due to the closure of subsistence fisheries.
