Since October of 2019, Fish Shop has partnered with It’s All About the Kids, a local non-profit that assists families struggling to feed their children during the “weekend food insecurity gap”. And to date, Fish Shop has donated over 8,600 nutritious meals to the organization!
To help with donations, Fish Shop created a specialty Elote Taco, which consists of Mahi Mahi marinated in Fish Shop seasoning, cilantro white sauce, cabbage, roasted corn, red bell pepper, and cotija cheese. A portion of proceeds from each taco help to fund meals to children in need.
Last year, Fish Shop also hosted give back weekends, at the beginning of each month, where customers can donate directly to the It’s All About the Kids Foundation when they order at the counter. All three locations – Pacific Beach, Encinitas, and Point Loma – are hoping to bring that campaign back sometime next year!
It’s All About the Kids works to provide fresh and canned fruits, vegetables, pasta, rice, beans, cereal and other non-perishable items, to those in need, on a weekly basis. Kids need food in order to grow, learn, and succeed, and the foundation has made it their mission to ensure children in San Diego have the nutrients they need.
Along with delicious tacos, diners can enjoy local beer and wine, and the Point Loma Fish Shop location also features craft cocktails.
