Arlington, VA (PRWEB) September 24, 2015
The nonprofit Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) has announced its formal recognition of Gorton’s as a Visionary Partner, the highest donor level, within SNP’s Chairman’s Campaign Circle. This honor acknowledges Gorton’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 gained from eating at least eight (8) ounces of seafood a week.
“Gorton’s support of the public health education campaign from Seafood Nutrition Partnership is aligned with our goal to make it easier for consumers to enjoy the benefits of seafood being a larger part of their diets,” said Judson Reis, president and CEO of Gorton’s. “We are proud to be part of an effort that helps Americans live better, healthier lives.”
“We are honored that Gorton’s is providing an extraordinary level of support in our effort to address a preventable public health crisis in the U.S of heart disease, by eating more seafood,” 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 Gorton’s support, we hope to inspire a healthier America by promoting a nutrient-rich diet that includes seafood.”
