Collaborating to engage Georgia's youth
The Southeast Dairy Association and Atlanta Falcons are committed to helping Georgia’s youth engage in 60 minutes of physical exercise every day and to make healthy food choices.
Whether it’s Freddie the Falcon visiting local schools or a photo contest showing how students are being active in school, the Southeast Dairy Association and Atlanta Falcons are doing their part. The collaboration combines the nutrition expertise of the Southeast Dairy Association and the fitness expertise of the Falcons to give children the tools and resources needed to change their personal health habits.
