Apple Crunch teaches kids about food sources

By  | 

Thousands of students joined the Midwest states of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and South Dakota in celebrating National Farm to School Month by crunching into locally and regionally grown apples at noon on Thursday, Oct. 13, 2016.

The Midwest Great Apple 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 agriculture to all kinds of classroom curricula – from science to art! Of course, if you are unable to participate on Oct. 13 or exactly at noon, we still encourage you to plan an Apple Crunch event anytime during October’s National Farm to School Month festivities.
