“At Edible Tampa Bay, they tell the story of the region’s local, seasonal food culture: what to eat, where to find it, how to make it, and who is growing it. Edible Tampa Bay believes that knowing where our food comes from is powerful, and that being connected to the land and waters that produce Florida’s unique bounty gives us a strong sense of place. Food brings us together. Food creates community.”
