FISH.FOOD.FEEL GOOD. (F3G) www.f3g.org is America’s only sustainable fishing charity and they have one simple goal: to collect unwanted fish and distribute them to those in need whether that need originates from being homeless, jobless, elderly, disabled, a military Veteran, etc.
If you’re planning a multiday fishing trip out of San Diego and you catch more fish than your freezer will hold, F3G will accept your unwanted pelagic fish (Yellowtail, Yellowfin, Bluefin, Dorado, Albacore, and Wahoo) and donate them to local charities for free.
F3G collects and donates fish to Father Joe’s, San Diego Food Bank, San Diego Rescue Mission, Samoa Independent and Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego.
To learn how you can make a donation contact F3G at www.f3g.org
With all the amazing work F3G continues to do here in San Diego, people from other fishing ports throughout America have convinced Todd Bluechel (F3G’s Founder) to replicate F3G nationwide.
F3G has solely been funded by Mr. Bluechel but in order to replicate this program nationwide and achieve the goal of feeding 1 million Americans annually F3G is going to need help and help requires financial support. If you or your company is looking for a unique fishing charity to support, or if you’re looking for a tax write off, I urge you to contact F3G today.
You can also show your support locally by making a donation for the San Diego 2013 F3G Fishing for Charity fundraiser August 6-8th.
More information about F3G can be found from two interviews Mr. Bluechel did on KPBS:
