TAMPA (CNN) – A group of fishermen in Hawaii had a lucky day at sea and decided to use their catch to feed their local health care workers.
The group caught two yellowfin tuna totaling 220 pounds.
The fish was sent to a seafood distributor who cleaned, cooked, and prepared the tuna into more than 300 poke bowls.
The meals were then delivered to Honolulu’s Straub Medical Center and the Queen’s Medical Center.
The men said they were inspired to do good for their community after witnessing another local fisherman, 104-year-old Setsuo Todoroki, regularly catch fish he then donated to strangers in need.
