Happy Apple Crunch Day!
I hope you all are getting ready to CRUNCH with your kiddos! Don't forget to share your pictures on social media and tell your local news station or paper about your event! Get the word out that you're taking steps to get Michigan foods into your school and early childhood program meals!
This also marks the second week of National Farm to School Month, and the theme is Healthy School Meals. What a time to get those Michigan apples onto your plates and celebrate healthy school meals.
Need inspiration for celebrating healthy school meals? The National Farm to School Network has highlighted some great stories on their blog in order of Healthy School Meals. Check out this story on the Chef Ann Foundation and how they're getting real, unprocessed, healthy school food to kids every day. There's also a really great video showing how collards make it to the plate at one school in North Carolina.
New to Farm to School? It's not too late to join in on the Farm to School Month action! Pledge to take one small step and you could be entered to win support for your farm to school activities. That one small step could be as simple as buying some apples and crunching them together!
Best, and happy crunching!
