UGA Extension Fulton County’s Fulton Fresh program is a multigenerational nutrition education program, which integrates youth, agriculture, and family and consumer science programming in an urban community. The goal of Fulton Fresh is to increase awareness and consumption of in-season, local produce through hands-on education focused on creating fruits and vegetables to be tasty and fun to make. By incorporating different generations, Fulton Fresh is playing a pivotal role in using local fruits and vegetables to combat childhood obesity in Fulton County by providing hands-on learning to promote and encourage fruit and vegetable consumption.
Fulton Fresh programs include:
The 2021 Fulton Fresh Mobile Market kicks off again this Fall.
The mobile market will run from October 19 - November 18, 2021. The mobile market will make 6 stops a week throughout Fulton County and is open to the public. The fall sessions will feature an online learning component in place of the normal in-person nutrition education food demonstrations. All pick-up will be outdoors, contact-less, and curbside. For more information, visit the Mobile Market page.
The Fulton Fresh Mobile Market will also be providing produce and activity kits for kids, but only for the Summer sessions! Participation in the regular market is not required, and all activities can be downloaded from our Youth Activities page.
