Hart Teams Up With Seafood Nutrition Partnership


MAUMEE, Ohio, August 11, 2015 – Hart, a full-service, Ohio-based marketing and advertising agency, has teamed up with a national nonprofit organization to improve the health of Toledo-area residents.

Hart was selected by Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) to help raise awareness about the essential health and nutritional benefits of seafood.

Seafood helps reduce the risk of heart disease and is the best source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are healthy fats essential to human health and development. Seafood also improves baby brain and eye development, when the mother eats seafood during pregnancy.

“We have experience and expertise in both healthcare and food, so we were delighted to be selected to help spread the word about the health benefits of eating seafood on a regular basis,” said Mike Hart, President/CEO of Hart.

As part of the awareness campaign, Hart will be working with SNP to host several educational events around the city in October, which is National Seafood Month.

The USDA recommends at least two servings of seafood each week, but 90 percent of Americans are not coming close to meeting those guidelines.

“Our mission is to help Americans gain the skills and knowledge to buy, cook and eat seafood as part of a well-balanced, nutrient-rich diet,” said Linda Cornish, executive director of the Seafood Nutrition Partnership.

“We believe with the proper education and communication Americans can change their diets and improve their health,” Cornish said. “Taking the simple step of incorporating two servings of seafood in your diet each week reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by a staggering 36 percent. It’s a simple and easy change for drastic benefits.”
