Midwest Great Apple Crunch
Center for Rural Affairs | 22-Aug-2015
Join students of all ages, from preschool to college, along with individuals across the Midwest Region states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma in celebrating National Farm to School Month by crunching into locally and regionally grown apples at NOON on Thursday, October 22, 2015. This collective crunch encourages healthy eating and supports farm to school and other local food purchasing initiatives throughout the region. It’s also a fun way to connect food and nutrition to all kinds of classroom curricula – from science to art! The Midwest Great Apple Crunch provides your school, district, county or organization the framework to host a successful local food promotion event this October. A comprehensive guide to organizing the event is available on this website.
