Posted on May 15, 2020

SeaShare is excited to announce that we have received one of the very first ReFED COVID-19 Food Waste Solutions grants. This grant is being used to urgently send 750,000 seafood to food banks and feeding centers across the country. “COVID-19 has disrupted the regular flow of the food supply chain, making it difficult to get fresh, healthy food to the people who need it most and increasing the amount of food insecurity,” said Alexandria Coari, Capital and Innovation Director at ReFED, a national nonprofit working to advance solutions to reduce the amount of food waste. “The work of organizations like SeaShare is urgent, and we’re excited to get them the critical support they need from the ReFED COVID-19 Food Waste Solutions Fund.”

It's become an annual tradition. SeaShare pools generous seafood donations from seafood industry donors, and the US Coast Guard Air Station in Kodiak loads up the palettes of fish for delivery to Kotzebue and Nome.
