Make your Crunch Count! Register for the MI Apple Crunch

The MI Apple Crunch is quickly approaching - make sure your event is counted! It's easy to participate - just register at In return, you'll receive information about where to find local apples and how to promote your event. We are hoping to reach 1.6 million crunches across the region - your registration will help us get there!


This year marks the first time that the Michigan Apple Crunch and the Great Lakes Apple Crunch will join forces for one great crunch. Schools, hospitals, early childcare and education programs and other organizations celebrate Michigan's abundance of fresh, local produce by collectively crunching into Michigan apples for this fun, one-day event. The official date is October 10, but you can celebrate anytime in October. Share your plans, photos from your event, and follow along on Facebook @miapplecrunch and @michiganfarmtoinstitution
