Arlington, VA (PRWEB) September 29, 2015
The nonprofit Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) has announced its formal recognition of Bumble Bee Seafoods as a Visionary Partner, the highest donor level, within SNP’s Chairman’s Campaign Circle. This honor acknowledges Bumble Bee’s significant contributions in support of SNP’s upcoming national public health education campaign, which launches in October 2015 as an effort to build awareness about the essential nutritional benefits from eating seafood at least twice a week.
“Bumble Bee Seafoods is fully committed to promoting the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle. This is why Seafood Nutrition Partnership’s public health education campaign resonates so well with us,” said Chris Lischewski, president and CEO of Bumble Bee Seafoods. “We are proud to support SNP’s efforts, which will help demonstrate the vital nutritional value and health benefits of eating seafood.”
“We are honored that Bumble Bee Seafoods is providing an extraordinary level of support in our effort to address the public health crisis in the U.S., where 70% of deaths are from preventable diseases,” said Linda Cornish, executive director of Seafood Nutrition Partnership. “USDA HHS dietary guidelines recommend eating seafood twice a week for optimal health, yet only 1 in 10 Americans follow this advice. Together with Bumble Bee, we hope to inspire a healthier America by promoting a nutrient-rich diet that includes seafood.”
