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 vegetable recipes that are 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:
