MADISON, Wis., April 5, 2022 -- Sitka Seafood Market, a sustainable seafood direct to consumer, subscription box company, has announced it will donate 100% of profits from its one-time box sales to World Central Kitchen through the month of April. World Central Kitchen provides chef-created meals to communities impacted by natural disasters and prolonged humanitarian crises.
"Our company is committed to sourcing high quality, traceable, wild caught seafood from responsibly sourced fisheries in Alaska and the North Pacific," said Gerardo Canales, CEO of Sitka Seafood Market. "As a values-based company it is our responsibility to help communities suffering from food scarcity," added Canales.
Founded in 2011, Sitka Seafood Market invests one percent of its gross revenue every year in fisheries conservation, habitat protection, and coastal community resilience efforts in Alaska. The integrated boat-to-doorstep seafood company provides sustainable, wild-caught seafood sourced from its fleet of small-boat fishermen and trusted partners. Consumers can shop its seafood subscriptions and one-time boxes while supporting Alaskan fishing communities.
"It is part of our values to support our communities," said Canales. "And sometimes our definition of communities widens when the challenge is big. Our contribution to World Central Kitchen joins our larger vision of serving people, the planet, and the environment," added Canales.
