DECATUR, Ga. – DeKalb County Cooperative Extension is calling for applications for Fresh on DeK, the DeKalb Mobile Farmers
Launched in May 2015, Fresh on DeK has raised awareness about the importance of fruit and vegetable consumption for healthy living by providing fresh, affordable produce and food demonstrations to county residents. Communities, businesses or organizations can apply to be a Fresh on DeK stop. The proposed location must be able to provide a liaison to organize the site. The site must also have a street-level parking area that is highly visible, large enough to safely park a 60-foot bus and easy for customers to access and park without hazard. The market visits areas around the county each week, beginning in the spring and running 16 weeks. To apply to be a Fresh on DeK stop, visit www.freshondek.com and click “2019 Season Application.”
Fresh on DeK is a collaborative effort of DeKalb County Cooperative Extension and the DeKalb County Board of Health. The program is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and DeKalb County Government.
