North Carolina Crunch

October 23 @ 12:00 pm

Join the state of North Carolina in celebrating National Farm to School Month by crunching into a locally grown apple at NOON on Wednesday, October 23, 2019.  Participants of all ages are invited to crunch!

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 month, apples grown by local farmers, and promoting healthy eating and 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 23rd or exactly at noon, we still encourage you to plan a Crunch event anytime during October’s National Farm to School Month festivities.
