Fortune Fish & SeaShare Fight Hunger for the Holidays (Bensenville, IL)


  For the fifth year in a row, Fortune Fish & Gourmet is making the holidays a little merrier for the Chicagoland community by teaming up with SeaShare, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the nutrition of individuals served by food banks across the United States. Throughout the holidays, Fortune Fish will join forces with SeaShare to donate thousands of pounds of seafood and gourmet foods to Feeding America, the network of more than 200 US food banks that includes the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Food for Greater Elgin, and many others.

"Several times a year, we go through our inventory and make donations through SeaShare to our local food banks like Care For Real. We also help SeaShare with logistics when we can.  It's important to give back to the community, especially during the holidays when there are so many that go hungry. SeaShare is an important partner for us and we are proud of the support we can give them," says Fortune Fish & Gourmet CEO Sean O'Scannlain.

About SeaShare
SeaShare is the only organization that focuses on seafood, and the seafood industry, as a source of nutrition for hunger-relief. Their board of directors represents the breadth and diversity of our seafood industry. SeaShare's donation model leverages the help of fishermen, processors, service providers, and financial donors who want to give back in their communities. Many of their donors could not participate if SeaShare did not coordinate and combine donations into a single finished product. Together, they have provided over 200 million seafood servings to Feeding America's food bank network since 1994. For more information, please visit www.seashare.org
