Fulton Fresh Mobile Market 2020 Summer Application

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 to the
nutrition class no later than by ten minutes after it begins.

This summer, the mobile market will run for 10 weeks during the 2020 summer season, from June 2nd – July 2 nd and July
14 th – August 13th. Each chosen organization will be served a total of 5 times during the summer season. Location stops
will be selected through this application process and the location contact will assist in the set up and advertising of the
mobile market stop.

Requirements:

1. We give priority to those locations that are located in a USDA food desert: https://www.ers.usda.gov/data-
products/food-access-research-atlas/go-to-the-atlas.aspx or within a Fulton County Food Severity Index:
https://performance.fultoncountyga.gov/stories/s/Access-to-Healthy-Foods-Analysis/b5hq-p75b/

2. The point of contact is responsible for marketing the five-week session and must be present at all sessions.
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.

Please submit the application by April 20th by 5 pm – NO EXCEPTIONS. If you have any questions, please contact Shirley
Dodd at Shirley.dodd@fultoncountyga.gov or 404-762-4077.
