Sink Your Teeth Into This Fun Event on October 22nd!
What is the Great Apple Crunch? It’s a day to CRUNCH into fresh, local apples in school! The Illinois Farm to School Network, along with the Illinois Farm Bureau and Agriculture in the Classroom, has been working hard to get local apples on the menu on October 22nd in Illinois districts. Schools can serve their apples with a CRUNCH noise and take a picture of their crunch! This is a way to showcase local, Midwestern food and farmers. Local apples are not often served in Illinois schools, but thanks to Farm to School partners, they are coming for the Great Apple Crunch.
