Healthy Communities Outreach Project

“Food Hero Harvest to Home Video Project”

The North Coast and South West Regions will unite efforts to create a series of short videos that feature local families making healthy recipes together.  These professionally produced videos will empower families to incorporate whole grains, fruits and vegetables into meal plans by promoting the recipes found on  The videos will be shown at local movie theaters along the North Oregon Coast and will be hosted on the website.  Youth enrolled in 4-H Food Projects will also receive a Whole Grain Food Hero Kit, which includes the video, so youth can have all the tools they need to make the healthy recipes together with their family or club.
