October is National Farm to School Month — and Wednesday, October 19, is Apple Crunch Day! Help celebrate National Farm to School month and raise awareness for Farm to School in Rhode Island by taking part in a statewide “Apple Crunch” event and related activities.
On October 19th, we’ll synchronize our watches for 12:00 noon and bite into locally grown apples! Classrooms and cafeterias or school groups anywhere can participate by registering here to get an Apple Crunch Celebration Guide with ideas on how to assemble a planning team, source local apples, incorporate farm to school education, and promote your activities. Share your “crunch fun” (video & photos) on social media with #RIAppleCrunch22 to be eligible to win prizes!
