file

The 2023 Site Application is now CLOSED. The schedule will be announced in March 2023. 

The 2023 Season will run for a total of 16 weeks from May 15, 2023 - September 8, 2023, with two, 8-week long sessions.

Session A will run for 8 weeks, from May 15 - July 7. Session B will run for 8 weeks, from July 17 - September 8. Our mission is to raise awareness about the importance of fruit and vegetable consumption of healthy living and increase access by selling fresh, affordable produce.

2023 Season Update

For the past 2 years, Fresh on DeK has implemented a Pandemic Response Model, featuring a drive-thru free food distribution.
This year, we are transitioning back to our original model as a Farmer's Market, and will be able to provide a wider variety of fruits and vegetables (including GA Grown produce from local farmers) to the DeKalb County Community at low prices. We will continue to provide free produce, however we will do so using a voucher system for individuals that participate in our weekly educational sessions.

COVID-19 NOTICE: The Fresh on DeK team is actively monitoring COVID-19 as well as the State and County guidelines regarding in-person programs. The details in this application do not accommodate for any needed changes to program implementation due to the COVID-19 protocols, as guidelines are constantly changing and we cannot predict what they may be in the Spring and Summer of 2023. The Fresh on DeK team will notify all applicants and selected sites of all relevant updates, as needed.
 

Fresh on DeK is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, DeKalb County Government, DeKalb County Board of Health and UGA Cooperative Extension.
