NC Crunch

October 21, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join the state of North Carolina in celebrating National Farm to School Month by crunching into a locally grown apple on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at noon. Participants of all ages are invited to crunch. Visit our website to register to join the crunch and receive a free NC Crunch Planning Guide.

Across North Carolina, kids and adults will be crunching an apple that is available from a local farm in October. This event is about uniting together to celebrate North Carolina agriculture, National Farm to School and Early Care and Education month, apples grown by local farmers, and healthy eating. Everyone is invited to participate.

The North Carolina Crunch promotes healthy eating and supports farm to school and other local food purchasing initiatives throughout the state. 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 October 21st or exactly at noon, we still encourage you to plan a Crunch event anytime during October’s National Farm to School Month festivities.
