Seafood Heart Health Day set for February 25
The Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) is teaming up with Memphis-area Kroger stores to help Memphians become healthier through a seafood-rich diet. The organization will be in Kroger stores Saturday, February 25, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. to share seafood coupons and information and tips about a seafood diet.
Kroger stores will have volunteers sharing information about the benefits of eating a seafood-rich diet and sharing recipes and coupons in the seafood department. Select stores will have samples from the seafood department. There will be a Facebook Live broadcast at www.facebook.com/snpmemphis for customers to ask questions about cooking and eating seafood.
Omega-3 fatty acids found in seafood are known to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and arthritis and improve child brain and eye development. Seafood is the best source of these essential oils that are healthy fats needed for human health and development.
“This is a great partnership opportunity for us,” said Teresa Dickerson, Community Affairs and Public Relations Manager for the Kroger Delta Division. “We enjoy being a part of initiatives that help promote a healthier community, and Seafood Nutrition Partnership has a great mission to help Americans learn about seafood.”
