On September 8 the ADA of Georgia joined Health M Powers and Georgia Grown for a "Taste of Health" event in Atlanta. Health M Powers is a non-profit organization that promotes healthy eating and activity in schools. The ADA of Georgia provided dairy smoothie recipe cards and the Clarke County school district provided samples for over 150 attendees. This event was created in response to Agricultural Commissioner Gary Black's 20/20 Vision and Initiative which incorporates local foods into school district menus.
