This week, we have a special announcement! We are SO excited to announce that Ohio’s first Great Apple Crunch virtual event will be held on Facebook live on October 8 at noon! Just tune in to the Ohio Farm to School Facebook page on October 8 at noon to learn where and how apple trees grow and how Ohio apples get to your plate!
For Apple Crunchers to get the most out of this event, we encourage Crunches in grades K-5 to complete the NEW apple-based lesson plans available to all Apple Crunch registrants! We all know that flexibility is the name of the game in 2020 and we are SO excited because these lesson plans can be done in OR out of the classroom. Special thanks to Columbus City Schools and Ag in the Classroom for creating them!

After completing the lesson plans, let us know what Ohio apple questions you have and an Ohio apple grower will answer them during the virtual event on October 8 at noon. Send in any questions about how Ohio apples, how they grow, how they get to your school or anything else you are wondering HERE.
Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
This collective Apple Crunch encourages and celebrates the use of healthy, Ohio-grown foods in cafeterias across the state. We Crunch together to support our local farmers, to grow healthy eaters, and to build strong communities across our state and region.
