Fauquier FISH last week received a donation of 2,500 pounds of frozen salmon fillets from Kvarøy Arctic, a sustainable fish farm in Norway.

After the delivery to Warrenton on Thursday, Jan. 21, FISH (For Immediate Sympathetic Help) kept a portion of the donation and distributed the remainder to the Rappahannock Food Pantry, Community Touch, Culpeper Food Closet, Seven Loaves Services and the Fauquier Community Food Bank.

Fauquier resident Anita Parris Soule, a social media influencer, made the donation possible. Ms. Anita Soule develops recipes for Kavrøy Arctic and promotes them social media.

As part of the company's effort to work with food banks across the U.S. during the pandemic, Kvarøy offered to donate the salmon to a charity of Ms. Soule’s choosing.

FISH Executive Director Kathryn Lamonia initiated a collaboration with the Piedmont Environmental Council to ensure the donation reached the greatest number of food-insecure people in Fauquier County.

“Since I started as the director of FISH, I've really enjoyed building this partnership with PEC,” Ms. Lamonia said. “When we were approached about the salmon donation, it seemed like a natural fit to reach out to PEC to partner with them once again. It benefits the entire community and fosters a sense of camaraderie between those seeking to reduce food-insecurity in our local communities.”

We the people appreciate these contributions but as St. Vincent de Paul says, use donations wisely. The poor need more than just food. They need to be uplifted from poverty. Putting a band aid on poverty is not a solution. It can be considered a loss. They need real leaders to advocate for them. The county needs affordable housing and it is unacceptable for any child in this country to be raised homeless, without water and basic necessities. If their families qualify for subsidies it should be available. We all need to be a voice to the leaders in this community to go out into the poor neighborhoods and make them a priority. Salmon is high is Coq10 and can provide many nutrients but nothing replaces the value of running water and a roof over their heads. Come on people of Fauquier County. Be their voice. Make American children and their families first. Stop abusing our resources and start uplifting people out of poverty. Giving them bread is helpful but not a solution. Let's step this up.
