a short overview
Farms, gardens, and fishermen provide bountiful harvests along the San Mateo coast. Coast Bites connects local food sources with the community with a local television, video, and website series. Fostering connections with fresh local food is vital:
“Actively supporting our local agricultural heritage improves economic vitality of our farmers and overall health for our community, especially our children.” — Dr. Scott Morrow.
Eating local embraces delicious, healthy ingredients at their peak. Coast Bites introduces local farmers, fishermen, and gardeners. It features harvests, seasonal foods, and events. Food education will be presented in a quirky Good Eats style.
Each episode will feature one or more local seasonal ingredients, from source to table. We want film ten episodes in our first season. Each episode will be 28.5 minutes in length. Episode segments include:
- local farms and gardens, meet the farmer, and learn more about the ingredient
- local eateries to learn how to prepare the featured ingredient(s)
- local food events, from harvests to food banks
We know that eating food within 100-miles of its origin is the best plan for the planet and ourselves. Coast Bites shows how to do just that in our bite of the California coast.
