Skuna Bay, Vancouver Island Craft Raised Salmon to donate fish to New Jersey communities

Gold River, B.C. (November 6, 2012) — Skuna Bay, Vancouver Island Craft Raised Salmon has partnered with Chef David Burke to prep and donate almost 1,000 pounds of their Craft Raised Salmon to New Jersey charities focused on hurricane relief efforts. In addition, beginning next Tuesday, November 13, Chef Burke will donate a percentage of the profits for all Skuna Bay salmon dishes sold at his four New York restaurants (David Burke Kitchen, David Burke at Bloomingdales, David Burke Kitchen, and Fishtail) to select charities.

“Along with millions of others I was caught up in the devastation of Sandy last week. We know there will be much help needed in the coming days and weeks and we are glad that we can play some small part in donating food for the needy. We are grateful for the generosity of David Burke and his team in preparing our fish and providing it to charities in New Jersey,” states Jonathan Larry, Skuna Bay Salmon. “We would also like to thank Gotham Seafood, one of our New York distributors, for their support under these challenging circumstances.”

“As a native New Jerseyan, we’re especially proud to partner with Skuna Bay as one of our initiatives to feed the hungry in my home state,” adds Chef Burke. “Skuna Bay salmon is of the highest quality and will be featured in our restaurants with a percentage of profits to benefit Table to Table and Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.”
