Atlanta Mobile Market Coming to the West Plaza This Sunday
Visit the Atlanta Mobile Market in West Plaza from 12PM-3PM.
The Atlanta Mobile Market (AMM) strives to encourage healthier eating habits and decrease incidences of diet-related chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. It does this by increasing access to and decreasing cost of healthy foods in food deserts, while also educating the community about healthier options.
Through a mobile grocery store route, AMM provides food desert communities with fresh, affordable produce. Community residents purchase goods with credit card, cash or SNAP benefits. In addition, recipes cards are available to highlight simple, nutritious options. Interactive learning workshops focus on budgeting, meal planning, cooking skills, nutrition education, and disease prevention and management
Also, Juliet Peters will be giving demonstrations on how to eat creatively and healthy on a budget.
