The Bumble Bee Seafood Company Donates $900,000 in Product to Feeding America® in Support of Hunger Action Month

SAN DIEGO , September 16 /Businesswire/ - In support of Hunger Action Month, The Bumble Bee Seafood Company is continuing to honor its commitment to feeding lives through the power of the ocean with a donation of more than $900,000 in nutritious seafood products to Feeding America®. The product will be donated to areas of the country that have been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 120-year-old seafood company is also finding creative ways to motivate US-based corporate employees to give back. Recently, the company hosted a summer wellness challenge for employees and their family members in partnership with the Vizer app, which supports food banks across the country. Participants were able to donate a meal for every 10,000 steps taken or 30 minutes of physical activity, resulting in 1,197 meals donated to combat hunger in America. In addition, Bumble Bee is launching “Sea Inspired,” a new internal engagement platform designed to help employees find ways to volunteer, take care of the planet and stay healthy. Inspired by the Hunger Action Month awareness campaign, the first “Sea Inspired” program aims to educate employees about hunger issues and empower them to take action by volunteering at local food banks.

“Our company embraces a commitment to put people first, and that includes both our employees and giving back to the communities in which we live and work,” said Jan Tharp, President and CEO, The Bumble Bee Seafood Company. “Our products provide an excellent source of high-quality protein and we are proud to be able to provide this donation to give back to those who are going without nutritious meals far too often.”

Bumble Bee’s canned and pouched seafood products can help Americans of all ages meet seafood consumption recommendations set out by the United States Departments of Agriculture 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA). The DGA recommends that Americans of all ages, particularly young children and pregnant women, eat seafood at least twice weekly – an amount that less than 20 percent of Americans are currently meeting.

In the past 18 months, Bumble Bee has donated more than $2 million in products, supplied over 12 million meals through food banks, and made financial donations to numerous local nonprofit organizations. For more information about The Bumble Bee Seafood Company, visit www.BumbleBee.com.
