Seafood for Kids with “Sea to Schools”
Real Seafood, Real Nutrition
In 2014, North Coast Seafoods began our “Real Food for Healthier Kids” K-12 seafood program “to offer all school children the health benefits of adding seafood to their weekly school lunch program.”
This “Sea to School” lunch program was conceived as a passion project with the mission of delivering local, sustainable, nutritious, and delicious kid-friendly seafood at an affordable price to school districts throughout Massachusetts.
Local and Responsibly Harvested Seafood
An important component of Sea to School is our partnership with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. GMRI’s Responsibly Harvested label holds us to the highest standard when it comes to our locally caught seafood.
In 2016, North Coast won the bid to deliver fish to Massachusetts public schools. In just three short years, we have sourced over one million pounds of sustainable seafood from local fishermen and delivered it to kids across New England.
Some of our most popular items include:
- Fish-in-Chips ~ Local Acadian redfish coated with Cape Cod low-fat kettle chips
- Coconut Crusted Redfish
- Pollock Italiano ~ Local pollock coated w/ toasted Italian ciabatta crumbs, Parmesan cheese and Italian spices.
- Salmon Falafel (or… Salafel!) ~ A trendy pairing of falafel and Atlantic salmon. And it’s gluten free!
We also equip educators to understand how our seafood is sourced and why responsibly harvested fish is the most environmentally sustainable choice. Educating students on the history, traditions, and methods of harvesting the bounty of the sea will help keep local culture and economies alive for generations to come.
We are proud to support the Seafood Nutrition Partnership and their “Eat Seafood, America!” campaign. Exited to keep bringing superior quality seafood to local kids as we tackle this especially challenging school year together.
