Fulton Fresh Mobile Market

Fulton Fulton Fresh is Back!!!


We are excited to announce that the Fulton Fresh Mobile Market application is now open for the 2019 summer season!

The Fulton Fresh mobile market was created to educate residents living in communities designated as “food deserts” on the importance of fresh and in-season produce. Every week, attendees will participate in a 30-45 minute UGA Extension nutrition education and food demonstration and will then be given a free bag of in-season produce from our mobile market to take home and prepare. The produce is not sold; rather, it is given away to individuals who arrive at the nutrition class no later than by ten minutes after it begins.

This summer, the mobile market will run for 10 weeks during the 2019 summer season, from May 28 - August 8. Each chosen organization will be served a total of 5 times during the summer season. Organizations will be selected for either the first, five-week session (May 28 - June 28) or the second, five-week session (July 9 - August 8). Location stops will be selected through this application process and the location contact will assist in the setup and advertising of the mobile market stop.

To apply as a location stop, please complete the online application:  https://goo.gl/forms/EsG4VkC8cLHHvUc62 2)  

Agencies that have been selected in the past may apply again but will go through the same rubric and interview process as every other agency that is interested and applies by the deadline.

Applications are due Friday, March 22nd by 5 pm – NO EXCEPTIONS. If you have any questions, please contact Kristen Sumpter at ksumpter@uga.edu or 404-762-4077.

FULTON FROM THE GROUND UP

 


About Us

University of Georgia Extension has served Fulton County residents since 1914, when fields still covered much of the county. Over the last century, our programs have expanded to include urban gardening, sustainable landscapes, family and consumer sciences and 4-H youth leadership.

The Fulton County Extension, backed by the resources of Fulton County and the University of Georgia, provides educational programs, information, and actual assistance to citizens of the County. Education and information is also provided to citizens by telephone consultation, site visits, newsletters, news articles, radio and collaboration with other community agencies. Publications and lab services are other delivery methods for education and information to citizens.
