The Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) Memphis and The Carter Malone Group have launched a new website to encourage Memphians to improve their heart health by eating at least two seafood meals a week.
The site, http://www.snpmemphis.com, has information about upcoming health events, recipes, an introduction to eating healthy, and makes it easy to connect healthy eating with social media. There is a link to take the Healthy Heart Pledge http://www. seafoodnutrition.org/healthy-heart-pledge. html, SNP’s national pledge to help Americans improve their heart health by eating seafood at least twice a week.
“We’ve seen excellent progress in the Memphis market in terms of people knowing about the health benefits of seafood,” said Linda Cornish, executive director at Seafood Nutrition Partnership. “This site gives Memphians another educational tool to guide them down a path to a healthier diet and lifestyle.” It also links to the national website http://www.seafoodnutrition.org that gives more information on the national campaign.
Since 2014, the national non-profit Seafood Nutrition Partnership has been working in Memphis to spread awareness of healthy eating and the benefits of seafood, hosting health fairs and nutritional seminars. The Memphis SNP Team is available to attend local events to educate the public on the benefits of eating seafood at least two times a week.
Along with launching the new site, SNP Memphis is also promoting a new social media hashtag, #Seafood2xWkMEM (seafood two-times per week Memphis), for Memphians to share their healthy eating habits. For every person in Memphis and Shelby County who takes the pledge, SNP is donating a can of seafood to the Mid-South Food Bank.
Seafood Nutrition Partnership is a 501(c) 3 whose mission is to inspire a healthier America through partnerships that raise awareness about the essential nutritional benefits of eating seafood. Through its education efforts, the organization aims to help Americans gain the skills to select, order, and prepare fish and shellfish, and to inspire a healthier America by promoting a nutrient-rich diet that includes seafood. SNP is a member of the Clinton Global Initiative and the NCD Roundtable. For more information visit: snpmemphis.com
