Learn About KidSafe Seafood

It’s March, which means it’s time to introduce you to our new Charity of the Month, KidSafe Seafood! We absolutely love what this initiative is all about!

The KidSafe Seafood program highlights the connections between ocean and human health to promote a better understanding of what species and which quantities of seafood are best for children to eat. The program encourages parents to diversify their children’s diets with a variety of environmentally friendly seafood options.

KidSafe Seafood educates and empowers families to engage in sustainable lifestyles that advance both ocean and human health.
