Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch!

Celebrate National Farm to School Month by crunching into locally and regionally grown apples at NOON on October 11. Everyone is welcome to crunch!

Although the aim for a collective crunch is on October 11, groups are welcome to crunch any day or time in October that works for them and post photos to social media. Help Ohio beat its crunch record!

  • Date: Thursday, October 11, 2018
  • Location: Any site including K-12 schools, early care settings, hospitals, colleges/universities, business campuses, state agencies and other organizations across Ohio, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.

Join in! Last October, 1,543,781 students, children, teachers and good food supporters across the region crunched. Let’s join forces and exceed that number CRUNCH this year! Visit the Apple Crunch Facebook page to get updates and see photos from last year’s crunch.
