This first session will be an introduction to Clayton Fresh, Gracy, and the MyPlate system. Through interactive and engaging activities, students will explore types of healthy behaviors. Included is a discussion about the importance of physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Clayton Fresh’s mobile market works to address poor eating habits and inactivity in youth and families. The Gracy Series is an in-school, comprehensive program for 4th-grade classrooms, “Learn. Eat. Grow.” Students will enjoy three sessions throughout the school year that will introduce the MyPlate foundation and beyond.

Through a mix of lecture, hands-on activities, demonstrations, and experiments, students will learn about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

The culminating event will be Pizza Farm, a free field trip where youth will rotate through stations representing the various parts of a pizza. The rotations will highlight several important parts of Georgia agriculture, including, dairy, wheat, and vegetables.

This outreach is free to Clayton County Public Schools.
