Fulton Fresh Mobile Market kicks off its 2020 season this month

The UGA Extension Agency sponsored program provides up to 8 to 10 pound bags of fresh produce to families.

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. — The mobile food market is celebrating its first official return for another season.

"Fulton Fresh" is co-sponsored with UGA Extension Agency, Fulton County, and the 4-H Club all in an effort to help end food insecurity in some of Atlanta's food access challenged areas.

Due to the pandemic, the Mobile Market’s usual in-person program has been deferred to online tutorials to ensure the consistency of enrichment that goes hand-in-hand with their nutrition education curriculum.

Families interested in taking part in Fulton Fresh Mobile Market this season must first register online. On food pantry distribution days, extension agents, staff, and volunteers have adapted their protocol in order to deliver healthy produce to the registered families, observing all the advised engagements, with masks, sanitizing, and social distancing.

Starting this season, children will be provided with their very own special produce bags with a new science experiment and fun educational handouts that are updated each week too. Children do not need to be present in order to collect.
