In partnership with the FarmOn! Foundation, the New York State Education Department (SED) Child Nutrition Program Office invites schools to take part in the Big Apple Crunch on October 26, 2023.
The Big Apple Crunch takes place in October of each year, inviting New Yorkers to take a bite out of an apple grown in New York to celebrate the apple harvest and to inspire us all to Eat Local.
Join SED in fostering farm-to-school connections by participating in your own Big Apple Crunch!
SFAs that cannot participate in the Big Apple Crunch on October 26th may choose any day in October to celebrate.
More information and resources on the Big Apple Crunch can be found at the FarmOn! Foundation Website
