The North Coast Food Web hosted Food Day at four elementary schools in Clatsop County — Seaside Heights, Cannon Beach Academy, Lewis and Clark and Warrenton. The food web brought dozens of locally-grown fruits and vegetables to the schools to educate students on where their food comes from and to encourage them to "eat the rainbow.” The event included a Produce Petting Zoo that allowed students to touch and smell — but not lick or eat — produce that they’re not typically used to seeing.
