Wild Alaska pollock is now on the menu at Climate Pledge Arena for Seattle Kraken hockey games, thanks to a deal struck between the team, Trident Seafoods and the Association of Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers (GAPP).
The deal, which was announced by GAPP on April 12, states that new wild Alaska pollock items on the arena menu would include recipes by Molly De Mers, the facility’s executive chef.
As part of the partnership, Joe Bundrant, chief executive officer of Trident Seafoods, said his company will reinforce engagement efforts with the goal of supplying more seafood to food banks and feeding centers.
“The Seattle Kraken is the 32nd team in the NHL,” Bundrant said. “And we think it’s fitting to increase our donations to reach a lifetime target of donating 32 million servings of food to people in need by 2024. Our partnership with Climate Pledge Arena is an important part of that commitment.”
They are roughly three million servings away from that target. Since 1994, Trident has donated the equivalent of 29.2 million servings of seafood to SeaShare, a Seattle-based non-profit with the mission of engaging the seafood industry in a collective effort to improve nutrition for those served by food banks and feeding centers.
“When fans enjoy our delicious seafood on game night, they do so knowing they are eating food that is good for people, and good for the planet,” Bundrant said.
